Open Dojo Session - Drone Reed Steadiness vs. Chanter Reeds Steadiness - Cameron MacFadyen - The Bagpipe as an Extension of your Self [Vintage]

Andrew Douglas
In this class, we have a discussion about how drone reeds are less susceptible to blowing pressure changes than chanter reeds (on the assumption that your instrument is well-calibrated). Then, we hear Lee play some of Cameron MacFadyen on the practice chanter. Finally, a discussion on how the social mentality of our bands and pipe band associations can make it difficult to pursue the bagpipe as an extension of the Self.
