Digital breakdown of "Scotland the Brave"
I've been working on reverse-engineering the the exact length of the gracenotes and such in our embellishments for sometime and think I've cracked the code! In my video here, I take a look at "Scotland the Brave" where I play both a fully digital programmed version along with a MIDI version I captured via my Redpipes classic and compare and contrast them. I think it's pretty cool!

Another way at looking at our music and seeing exactly how long and short we should be playing our gracenotes...

Very cool, I enjoyed it- the concept of, "sounding notes," is very useful!

Part of me wants to see this done to a recording of kaba gaida. We play "a few" ornaments.

Still, this is interesting and vindicates my approach to Highland embellishments.

I would highly recommend y’all check this out.

I sure wouldn’t mind getting a collection of different players to run through something like this on a click track to see where various embellishments land.
