Re: Grade 4 Piobaireachd tunes

Given what Tom said we’re the constraints of the PBA, I would add:

1) The Pretty Dirk
2) Sister’s Lament
3) Birth of Rory Mor

Just a thought.

Re: An epiphany: blowing tone

Yes, well...it's a bit more complex than that. Dunning-Kruger can have a big impact. I've been a musician all my life, know when things are in tune and out (and really hate it when they are out)....

Re: An epiphany/blowing tone

I had one, too, most recently.

I was spending a lot of time focusing on things like blowing steady, bag pressure - the mechanics of blowing tone. That's not a bad thing, and honestly, the best...

Re: APC Guide to Pibroch

Yes. I uploaded a bogus update. I have to fix it, and they have to approve it. It shouldn't take much longer. Perhaps try back in a couple of more hours.
