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.

In this session we take a look at the Peter MacLeod tune; Pipe Major Sam Scott. A classic 4-parted 6/8 march that is easy to memorize but forces us to come to "grips" with our low hand movements. I know, I know - horrible joke aside - this is a fun tune with a very catchy melody good for any solo or band repertoire!
