Re: What the.... ?!

Re: The reverse hands challenge

This is similar to an exercise we do periodically in fencing: fence left-handed if you're a righty (or visa-versa). It takes away your muscle memory and really makes you focus on what you're doing.

Re: Lament at funerals

My mother requested that Black Bear be played at my Dad's funeral as it was one of his favourite tunes. Ok, not really a lament.... :grin:

Re: Forum activity levels

I hope the irony isn't lost on folks that this discussion about real names vs pseudonyms vs the quality of their comments was a big controversy back in the day..... <poke> :wave: :grin:

Re: Bass drum head materials...

It's not just the head, it's also the mallets. He's using "potato mashers" (i.e. hard mallets), not competition mallets. The head is definitely by Remo.

Re: Pipe Band Drumming vs Other Style

I'm not surprised by the result, it's comparatively easy to have 2 snares in time with each other, it's much harder to do so when you have 7. Never mind the other drums.

As for the Old Guard...

Re: It's Been a Decade, any Hints on Getting Back in Piping?

Stafford, VA, puts you about 45 minutes from D.C. I'm sure that folks from the City of Washington Pipe Band would be able to point you to a good teacher in your area.

Re: Balmoral not acceptable?

Was it a competition sanctioned by the EUSPBA? IF so, EUSPBA rules clearly and specifically state on page 19 that "male competitors must wear a hat", but there's no description of said hat. :shrug:...

Re: He visits Isle of Wight Games

What if I played JK's score for HW? Or more likely, a score written by someone much less well-known but who's score also fits the tune? How is the judge supposed to decide how well it fits the tune?...

Re: He visits Isle of Wight Games

Some associations do allow for the use of recorded pipe music in lieu of a live piper, but the couple of times I've seen it done it just looked..... odd / weird / wrong / gauche IMHO :willy:

Re: He visits Isle of Wight Games

Because the drumming is supposed to fit the pipe music and without the piper, the drumming just becomes a drum salute since there's no pipe music to hear.
