Re: I've questions about echanter ...

The grace notes are not taken from the same fingering of the 9 standard notes. That may be whats causing the problem.

Re: Homemade Practice Pipes, hit some roadblocks, need some help/input

Sorry it took so long to answer.

My practice pipes came with a Walsh reed.
I really like those. I'm using one in my Dunbar PC right now.

You know what you might do,...

Re: Homemade Practice Pipes, hit some roadblocks, need some help/input

I have the Kilberry Practice Pipes, and I just took the restrictor out of the chanter stock yesterday. I noticed right away that the balance was off concerning pressure. The drones need a bit more...

Re: Changing Birl After Injury

I just switched to the straight up/down method recently, after a lot of time spent with a simple slide, and the double tap.

The up/down is working great for me, and it's the one I thought I...

Re: Drone enhancers

With the didgeridoo the constriction of air results in less volume and a clearer sound, but you lose the sense of just how massive the instrument is. People who play them don't spend a lot of time...

Re: Fast birls

Remember to make sure you're consciously playing two notes, and not just performing an action that you hope will result favorably. It's the same with doublings. Sure you're actually playing more than...

Re: Oldest piobaireachd and/or pipe tune

If the stories are true, then wouldn't "Lament for the Harp Tree" be the oldest?

(This is only one plausible story I've heard)

It was supposed to be a harp tune composed by someone who used...

Re: My First Bagpipes

The only thing about the Dunbars that I don't see mentioned is that those larger bores take a bit more lung power to get the proper backpressure generally.

I've read that before, but I really...

Re: lip endurance

It sounds like you're spending too much time blowing into the bag and not taking enough breaths.

Practice pushing a lot of air into the bag so that you only have to blow for a second or two.

Re: Use of Gibson Firesides as a transition to the GHB

Congratulations. Just be sure not to play them when you COULD be playing the GHB. You don't want to divide your time when it comes to that.

Re: Interesting pipe assembly

What a waste of a can of Airtight.

I bet there's some Pakistani family who'd really like to be warming themselves with that wood too.

Re: Use of Gibson Firesides as a transition to the GHB

You're right, they do blow continuously. I do too as a matter of fact. I just meant that they didn't usually blow for 5 or 6 seconds. It's usually three or four max.

Yeah, they would help with the transition, as long as you keep in mind one thing. Try not to blow for long periods of time. Blow to fill the bag back up, and then stop. Divide your time...
