In this session we take a basic look at harmonies and how there are used. We first take a look at some basic theory made simple and then go over several harmony lines of the Mingulay Boat Song to reinforce. Enjoy!
In this session we pick up where we left off last week in 1987. We again wind our way through innovation in sound and medley construction hitting many highlights and recordings along the way. Strathclyde - the end of an era, the rise of FMM, SFU, SLOT, and many others. Come have a listen!
In this session we take a broad look at harmony. We first have to know a bit about the different chord structures available to highland piping. We then take a look at several different examples from different arrangers. Enjoy!
In this session we take a look at a beautiful contemporary 4/4 march by Charlie Glendinning called Moonstar. It's a unique tune that lends itself well to the pipe band scene. We even go over some harmony lines for the 4th part! Enjoy.
In this session we go over two tunes that you can take back to your band or other merry bunch of pipers to harmonize with! A stirring compound-time slow air called the Mingulay Boat Song and a 3/4 retreat march - Dream Valley. Enjoy
