Traditionally, a piper served a 7-year apprenticeship before being unleashed on the unsuspecting public.
These are my 7 years.

Nothing much happened, except we got a new tune and I can't remember what it is, but it is an aire (slower) and has some tricky parts. We played through it cold which, thinking back, I could never have done when I first started. Then it took me weeks to get to the point where I could play a tune. Now I get it in the first couple minutes, and it takes me weeks to memorize it.
