In this class we look at GDEs. Focusing less on the gracenote articulation, I argue that GDEs are perhaps the most fundamental rudiment to grasp because they manifest themselves in so many different rhythms throughout pipe music and in so many idioms. Truly mastering the execution of GDEs from jigs, to round reels, to pointed reels and 6/8s, to hachums in strathspey playing will take your musicality to the next level!

Well, it's another amazing Donald MacLeod tune! This strathspey is full of lots of technique (like hachums and birls), but nothing too complex to make it not playable. Thus, it's a great tune for players with good technique to start down the road of competitive strathspey playing. Enjoy!
