Nice MSR presentation from both corps. in Bothwell Castle Pipe Band’s third-place finish in Grade 3B at the British Pipe Band Championships. Good forward moving drive with a solid musical presentation. Some untidy unison in spots likely cost them a spot higher in the prize list, but a fine performance well worth a listen.

Exercises are a good way to improve your embellishments. But basic exercises tend to be monotonous and it’s easy to lose focus. You may also find that something you can play well in an exercise becomes rough once you find it in a tune. An easy way to solve this problem is to find a tune that has a lot of the embellishments you want to practice.

Knowing a tune is good. Knowing a set is better. Being able to play a good sounding set that also lets you check the tuning on your pipes is the best. Having a good tune, or set, that allows you to make sure everything sounds correct, but you can also use to entertain, kills two birds with one stone and gives your repertoire depth.
