In this class, we review the 4 magical questions to 100% bagpipe efficiency. You should ask yourself these questions every time you get your pipes out of the box, because it's quite literally not WORTH playing if you don't.
In this class Rob looks at the classic tune Highland Wedding. He looks at the evolution of the tune from an early manuscript to today's more common settings and listens to Shott's play the tune at one of their recent recordings. A really great class on this classic tune!
There's a reason this tune is nicknamed the "big" reel. There is a LOT of stuff going on here. However, we take some time to review the game plan, and realize there's nothing stopping any player, of pretty much any level, in playing this tune well.
In this class Callum looks at the hazards of tuning up on rough conditions. There's tons of ways that the instrument can change but Callum synthesizes the issues into the basics concepts so you'll learn how to combat any conditions. Is it raining in your practice room? No problem, Callum's got you covered!
