In this class Rob explores techniques to tune pipe bands and create a rich tone. After a great discussion of tonal topics, Rob listens through 3 bands and critiques their performances from a tonal perspective.
In this session we take a look at the dynamic of tuning with multiple pipers. When do we switch from a chanter-centric tuning method to a drone-centric one? Also discussed are the importance of matched equipment and riding the "tone wave". Enjoy!
In this session we go through the step to tuning your drones properly. We talk first on what flat and sharp are and listen to some examples. An excellent resource for those trying to train their ears. Enjoy!
In this ear training session - we take a look at what being out of tune really sounds like. We talk a bit on the waves or beatings created by two differing pitches, how flat and sharp feel, and finally listen to a ton of drones being in and out of tune.
