D gracenotes are the most common of the supporting gracenotes. The reason for this is that D gracenotes are easy to play (they use the right-hand index finger), and produce a mellow, soft sound that contrasts effectively with the G gracenote. In this lesson, we’ll get used to the D gracenote, and its musical relationship to the G gracenote.

In this lesson, you’ll learn more bagpipe tunes. The following tunes are very commonly heard among bagpipers, and can be played using only the gracenotes that we have learned so far. In later chapters, you will learn to add in embellishments to fill out each of these tunes, but for now we will use the skills we have to put together these  simple, “prelude” versions. 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 shooting for.
