In this class, we give Scotland the Brave a bit of a makeover, learning how we can use this simple classic as a means to perfect a number of fundamentals that will carry over through the rest of our repertoire.
In this class we review the type two embellishments before looking at how to really properly fit them into some classic tunes. We talk about the rhythmical value of embellishments and how we need to work to maintain good basic rhythms in our tunes while enhancing them with excellently placed and articulated embellishments.
In this class we look through examples of the two main embellishments types- doubling-type embellishments and low-g oriented embellishments. Looking at a few exercises of various doublings, grips, and taorluaths we talk about just what it is that makes embellishments an important aspect of the music we play, and why it is so important to play them accurately and with a musical grounding.
