In this session we take the last pre-worlds check-in on both the North Berwick and Perth Games. First we talk a bit on what to listen for then delve in to multiple medleys and MSR's from the weekend. Enjoy!
In this class we listen to two great student performances of Colin Thompson and Crossing the Minch. Colin Thompson is a great 2/4 march suitable for moderate to upper level competions and great to learn for fun! Crossing the Minch is a great tune that every piper must learn!
In this class we start by looking at the Curlew. This 6/8 Jigs is a classic competition jig and a great tune to work on control in the Jig idiom. We work through the tune then move on to ASAP/ ALAP integration in Scotland the Brave.
In this class, we have a great discussion on how to play gigs where there isn't a great place to warm up. Andrew shares his routine in regards to weddings and funerals, and in various environments (hot/cold)
In this class, Patricia and John present some awesome specimens for examination! In a rendition of Mairi's Wedding, we come across a picture-perfect example of a Gracenote Synchronization issue, and we get a chance to really talk about how to hear it, and fix it! The phantom crossing noise also makes a guest appearance, as well as a common ALAP/ASAP issue.
