Re: Making a sporran - working with hides...

Just planning on trying to make a sporran from the turkey feathers/skin, not a "full face" sporran. However, it would cover quite the area! :lol:

Re: Full Face Sporrans

:lol:!! Only north of the Bridge!

I think I like the duck and pheasant as much or more than the animal hides. I certainly think the bobcat/lynx is gaudy.

Re: Learn it right the first time!

Hadn't heard it put in that exact a term but have heard the same basic principal in much of my training. Makes complete sense. Same with plateaus... Good stuff, thanks.

Re: Full Face Sporrans

Top one looks like an otter.

While not for everyone I think the full face sporrans are a nice touch.

Re: Proper embellishments

I agree with some here. Learning to read the music has been tough for me but the letters only confuse me more. However, use what works for you.

Re: Wish I had learned to play earlier

I'm right there with ya as far as wishing I'd started earlier. I started 2 years ago at 35. After about a year of work I put everything down to work on other priorities. Now, picking them back up,...

Re: Another time around...

I'd been on the pipes a few months, even marched in a parade, when I stopped. That's been over a year now. There was likely some redundency issues, as far as...
