What's in a name ?

Once upon a time, when our band was quite young, I was introducing one of our youthful pipers (who shall remain nameless) to the traditional strathspey – “The Shepherd’s Crook”.

We had gone over the tune a couple of times on the practice chanter and were having a short break when I heard him say quietly to himself
“I wonder what was wrong with him”.

Of course that could only happen in Australia !
