Yes, we were all beginners once, and I had the common sense to just listen. There is absolutely nothing valuable that a beginner piper can offer in the way of information, except maybe the starting times and dates of the local games, I'm sorry. It's like having a college intern offer advice to a 5 year employee on how to run a company...it's good for a laugh.

Yea, agreed for the most part. They can usually point out the beer tent as well. Just sticking up for the little guy, I guess.

But seriously, this is just an opinion board. No one is writing a book, just spouting their thoughts. And no one should take anything here as the absolute truth. When I read the various strings, for example regarding popular pipes, I look for majority and common opinions. If everyone has good words for Naill and a few don't, then I tend to believe most people think highly of Naill. But I still like to hear why people don't like Naill, what their negative experience was.

Hell, I'm no expert and am still learning everyday from great pipers whenever I can, as are probably all of us. So I listen a lot more than I advise and maybe someday it will be the other way around.
