Re: Left handed, right handed, no handed???

Makes sense to me, I have heard all of the above from different people, but I have a student who is left-handed, and has gone to great lengths to play other instruments left-handed. After I made him...

Re: Body movement during competition

I agree w/pretty much everything above, pipers, for the most part, should be still, if nothing else, for sound. If the drumline gets too out of control, it ruins the military air of a pipe band. I...

Re: solo, band?...or do you pull both off

Ahhh, the age old battle. I was personally taught as a solo piper first, band piper second. And when you listen to some of the great old players such as Donald MacPherson and Andrew Wright, they...

Re: What age to start learning?

I don't want to brag, so I won't, "just the facts, ma'am". I personally started at the age of 10, and I now play w/a Grde 2 PB, instruct my own local G5 band, I have about 20 of my own students, and...

Re: High A doublings

Not being able to see the said student's hand position from my office chair, it could be that he/she is trying to keep his thumb flat against the chanter rather than slightly at an angle. By keeping...

Okay, not a typical pipe tune, but I got a call from a local church this last Tuesday wanting to have me play this Sunday. I talked to the Music Director tonight, and he wanted me to play AG at the...

Re: Favoroute Tunes??

Afternoon at the Green Monster is a tune by Micah Babinski (spelling?) from Seattle. I got the music from him through Jack Lee 2 years ago at Winter Storm.

Re: women's competition???

I believe if you read all of what I said, you would see that I made at least some attempt at being objective in my views, with the exception of the "beaten by a girl" comment.

Re: D throw

This is an age old question. For judges such as Gavin Stoddart, I would only play the light throw, because that's his preference. For some other judges, only heavy.

So I guess what I'm saying is...

Re: women's competition???

First of all, no, I don't think there NEEDs to be a womens' only competition, although I agree that a Womens' Only Recital might be very cool.

Although this a generalization, for the most part,...

Re: Cameronian Rant - Settings

I have very little on the history of the tune, but since you asked how to play it in an MSR, the universally accepted version is the 6-parted stathspey.

In the Donald MacLeod Book 1, that version...

Re: cantarahch? cantaarach?

Canntaireachd, which almost litterally means "chanting" is not exclusive to Scotland or the pipes.

Although the Celts mastered this artform (through the pipes), it was very widely used before...

Re: Looking for some good tunes

As I don't have my books in front of me, I believe Willie Ross book 2 has several classic and original MSRs. Especially strathspeys. Such as Shepherd's Crook, Caber Feidh, Ewe Wit'The Crookit' Horn...

Re: your favourite band

I agree that there needs to be more outrageousness in piping. Right now, a lot of thr bands are not far from being the same.

Don't take this as blasphemy, just my opinion. I think Shotts, SLOT,...

Maybe someone...
