*Piobaireachd (pronounced "pee-brock") is basically the "classical music" of the pipes. It's very Scottish in origin, is similar to a slow-air. They tend to be melodic tunes, more "enveloping"—for lack of a better word. They begin with the "urlar" (or "ground"), a part of the tune from which the rest builds and to which it returns. Neat stuff.
