Ah ... looks like I found it.

I noticed this in passing, but I confess, I kind of caught the discussion in the middle and had other things on my mind, so I pressed on with my day.

After going back and reading from the beginning (and even then, I was a bit in the weeds as to what to issue actually was), I get it now. I'm embarrassed that I didn't really realize that this inconsistency was so prevalent.

This issue came up a bit when I was pipe majoring years back, but I wasn't the greatest sight-reader at the time, so I didn't really pay it much mind. I'm still not the greatest now either, but I'm definitely better. I DO know though, that the grip to C on "Green Hills" was played as the "first note/ left foot" and the A and B were played as pick up notes on the right foot.

Not to worry. It was an ‘inconsistency’ back then....despite all the past ‘top guns’ in piping,.....still is,to the chagrin of at least maybe some of the current top guns....and I think, under the banner “ there’s more than one way to skin a cat..” will always likely be a topic of conversation despite best intentions...IMHO.

You will be pleased to know that 3/4 time tunes are now correctly written in the revised edition!

Fantabulously seriously exceptionally good news Colin. Of course I expected no less. Ok everyone please buy the COP Tutor book. In fact. buy multiple copies and give to everyone you know, whether they play pipes or not.

I have to add that while the CoP and NPC tutors are fine indeed, I would bundle them with Jim McGillivray's Rhythmical Fingerwork and Piobaireachd Fingerwork duo for any serious student. (And if I am in a fiendish mood, the five-book Ross series with loads of penciled-in minor changes.)

I think the Pipers Dojo also has an approach. I haven't looked at all of it, though.

Yes, it's a very important musical point. I sincerely hope all tutors will use one of the 'corrected' tutor books.

......re David's post, a reminder that the 3/4s and 9/8s on Jim McGillivray's pipetunes.ca sheet music site are also notated correctly.

Thank you all for the additional information.
I have been in contact with Jim McGillivray on another matter and he seems like a very nice guy who is very willing to do what needs must to help those just starting out. as well as I have experienced great customer service from him.

It's my understanding from others that His rhythmic finger work is more for advanced beginners ( however that is decided) so hopefully in some months I'll be ready to tackle that.

Again thanks to all for your advice and direction.
