Default Re: Pinkie Finger Down for Quick C?

Thank for that link.
Because that reflects exactly what I have experienced.
Good players have thought about this long and hard indeed.
And the evidence is always much messier than we care to believe.

The question is, why do pipers insist that there is always one and only way way of doing things? Playing jigs, strathspeys, reels, marches, pibroch, fingering?

I have my theories (competition, mimicry, the confusion between musicianship and success, the near absence of any support for a true professionalism of performance outside the incessant competition arenas).

People need to chill. Itís a C. Play it in whatever way helps you play the music well.
