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, we continue last week's theme looking at The Australian Ladies as a tune example. There are some great points to talk about in this tune, and we look at a bunch of different rhythmic combinations in an effort to master the concept of ALAP/ASAP and incorporate it into our music making.
In this session we break apart the first 2 parts of Australian Ladies into their technical components. Bar by bar we take a look at each technical movement and break it down to both quality and placement. Fusion of the short note into technical movements is also covered. Enjoy!
The cut note in a dot-cut rhythm and the short steps of each and every embellishment are approached in the same way. Therefore, when a dot-cut rhythm butts up against an embellishment, we need to be sure to fuse them together - let's illustrate that in Australian Ladies.
