Bruce continues this series of classes with an introduction to different types of variations and some insight to getting the right "feel." Class members play through some of "Field of Gold" and "MacDougall's Gathering" for some further insight and feedback.
In this class Donald starts a new tune: The Lament for the Old Sword. This is a classic piobaireachd that many introductory students start with; not only because it isn't too hard but because it is a tune that playable at any level. Donald starts this tune by covering the Taorluath first then going into the Dithis. Finally Donald wraps up with the Crunluath. Next week we will look in depth at the Ground.
