BAEYS Chapter 2

Tutor [Vintage] - Lesson 2-5: Simple Bagpipe Tunes with G Gracenotes

Andrew Douglas
In this lesson, you’ll learn your first bagpipe tunes! The following tunes are very commonly heard among bagpipers, and can be played using only G Gracenotes. In later chapters, you will learn to add in other gracenotes and embellishments to fill out each of these tunes. If you aren’t familiar with these melodies, it is very important that you listen through the examples on each of the Videos to familiarize yourself with the tunes. Not doing so will make it very hard to know what you are shooting for.
