The march is the most common type of bagpipe music. Bagpipe marches are designed to move armies across great distances by foot. Using this knowledge can help you conquer the rhythm patterns you come across in your marches.
This is the first session of Willie McCallum's Art of MSR Playing. We start with march basics. Find the beat and stay true to it. This is the basis upon which we build a great tune. Then which beats to bring out to creat musical flow. We Will Take the Good Old Way, Prince Charles's welcome to Lochaber, John MacMillan of Barra, and Mrs MacDonald of Dunach are all covered in some part in the lesson.
