If you want to learn to play bagpipes, you should learn the Uilleann ("Irish") bagpipes. They are really beautiful. They also use a bellows to fill the bag (so, you have a bellows under one arm and the bag under the other).

An mp3 where you can hear them by themselves:

Haha...yeah. They can be quite expensive. My Scottish pipes were pretty expensive, I don't think I could swing buying Irish pipes, too (especially after buying a violin). I think the Scottish pipes are what most people think of when they think of "bagpipes", but there are even Spanish bagpipes out there, and a whole mess of smallpipes and such. Pretty amazing.

I never knew there were so many different types of bagpipes.

Well, if you're really bored and/or have a lot of free time you can read my "History of the Great Highland Bagpipe" that I did back in 1998 for some Technical Writing class that I took.

Most of the external links are broken, but the content is all there. The .wav files in the "music of the highland bagpipe" section are me playing (back in the olden days of 1998 before mp3 was that common)...I was never very good.
