In this class, we have a discussion about how drone reeds are less susceptible to blowing pressure changes than chanter reeds (on the assumption that your instrument is well-calibrated). Then, we hear Lee play some of Cameron MacFadyen on the practice chanter. Finally, a discussion on how the social mentality of our bands and pipe band associations can make it difficult to pursue the bagpipe as an extension of the Self.
In this class, Andrew looks at a great wee jig, with some non-conformist grace note patterns! It's a great for a little something to keep your fingers busy for a while :)
