In this session we take a look at the dot-cut relationship. The term ALAP and ASAP are used to communicate the difference in the written music and the reality of what we should be striving for rhythmically. The art of fusion helps greatly with this concept. A must for all pipers and dot-cut tune development.
In this 10 minute (actually 20) short - we take a look at the art of fusion and the dot cut relationship. We learn how to identify fusion exercises within tunes and how to practice them. The Black Watch Polka is used as an example. Enjoy!
In this class, we talk about the importance of keeping a pure, un-interrupted rhythm, regardless of embellishments or other fingerwork challenges. Then, we get into the nuts and bolts of great bagpipe tone.
In this class, Andrew dives into some mega geekazoid brain food in regards to rhythm and timing in music. We also go into many of the key "technicalities" of round vs. "swing" idioms. Don't miss out if you like your brain fried every now and then :)
In this session we set aside technique and try to simplify our approach to basic rhythms. Without a solid foundation of "big notes" we will forever struggle to ground our "little notes". A must for all levels.
