Default Re: Thow on D execution



Oh! buck!,

Comes now that ever re-kindled and re-bubbling pot
of piper's porridge... "Known of Old"... about the ever
lurking "Double D"... or "Throw on D"... Light or Heavy...
and even what the' Devil... to call... th' bleedin' things!! :)

(From hence... perhaps... comes that Old Saw... "Six
pipers... will get you... 15 opinions!!" :)

If... if... you can find one... refer to one of the older CoP
Tutor Books... "The Green Book"... from the 1950s or 60s...
and under the heading... "The Double D"... you shall find
the then three ways... of its accomplishment... though the
first (and possibly the second) example... was preferred...

That Old Devil... Time... passes... and nomenclature also
makes its shifts... and we now have our... "name" bollix... :)

Though I have always preferred the first example that they
gave... choose the one that your ear finds the most pleasing.

As to what to presently call it? As my sainted GrandMama
was wont to say; "Beats th' sh_te outta me!! :)

As with all else in The Piping Game... choose... and get tore
in to it!!... and have a roarin' grand time of it!!

And as you are new, here... Welcome to our (usually :) Happy
Throng... and as with your present inquiry... feel at perfect liberty
to... dive right in to our roiling pot of piping porridge... and swim
(and sometimes flounder) about...with the rest of us!!... :)

All the Best!!
