It’s common for pipers to consider themselves a “wet” or “dry” blower. But calling yourself a “wet” blower or a “dry” blower is basically bagpiper jargon. Neither is true.

Exercises are a good way to improve your embellishments. But basic exercises tend to be monotonous and it’s easy to lose focus.

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.

https://soundcloud.com/pipersdojo/208-practice-an-inch-wide-and-a-mile-deep-05102017 What's the best way to practice? In the span of our session, we want to focus on something small, and really "go deep" on that topic, so that we actually improve. A few minutes from my morning class here where I elaborate on this idea. Follow us on Instagram/Snapchat/Facebook/YouTube @pipersdojo!
