In this class Callum looks at how to create a driving rhythm in different tune idioms. From 2 parted 2/4 marches Greenwoodside, to the more complicated Hugh Kennedy, here's how to get a great drive. Other tunes covered include the 2 part strathspey Dalnahassaig, Reel Kalabakan, Jig Donella Beaton, and more!
In this class Callum looks at two jigs: The Curlew and Donella Beaton and uses these tunes to discuss the style of the jig idiom. Great tunes to learn at any level and style points that relate to all jigs!
In this session we take a look at the 4 parted jig Donella Beaton. Besides being an excellent GDE technical builder, this tune mixes a 2 beat pattern over the 3 beat jig time for a very cool effect. An excellent addition to the aspiring solost and kitchen piper's repertoire!
