Sometimes referred to as a "throw on F," the Dare brings a rich embellishment to the table in Piobaireachd that isn't often seen in light music. Look at the steps carefully, and make sure to get them right!

Ah, the Hiharin! This is a great opening and closing embellishment to Piobaireachd grounds, and sometimes later variations as well. Combining a D with a birl, this is perhaps the most iconic Piobaireachd embellishment.

The biggest thing to stress about tuning is that only a small part of the process relies on the quality of your "ear." At the Dojo, we stress that logic and strategy are the biggest components to tuning your instrument, not a magic ability to hear whether or not it's in tune.
