Default Re: Solo Competition Breakdown

I can't think of any specific instances that stand out. Just the usual stupid stuff: letting my mind wander, resulting in blooters, forgetting which tune was selected in an MSR or S/R, missing a repeat or adding an extra one. Particularly in a piobaireachd, I'd occasionally stop rather than wasting another ten minutes of a judge's time if I knew I'd put myself out of a contest. Having come up playing cane reeds, I had the occasional bass drone stop or the pipe just wander out of tune. S**t happens. Every long-term competitor has had the occasional breakdown.
