In this class we look at gracenote execution from the standpoint of understanding exactly what our fingers are doing as we play them. We use simple exercises to help us perfect the size and cleanliness of the gracenotes, and pair that with a demonstration in super slow motion of how some of the note transitions should look and in what order the fingers should move.
In this class we cover in more depth the proper execution and fundamentals of good gracenotes with the G gracenote. We look through a couple Chapter 2 exercises that we missed last week, and a couple new simple melodies.
In this class we cover the fundamentals of executing the G gracenote. We discuss how to create the most musical gracenotes possible with proper syncing of our foot (the beat) and our gracenote finger to achieve maximum musicality.

Air is blown into the bag through the blowstick, and the bag supplies the chanter and the three drones with the airflow that they need to
In this lesson, you will experience several different Scale-Run Exercises, moving both up and down the scale, with G gracenotes placed at the beginning of each beat. You should already be familiar with the melody notes from Lesson 1-3.
