Default Re: Game of Thrones 4-part arrangement on the highland pipes!

Matt,

Are you tweaking holes here? I'm trying to reconstruct your arrangement for my band but there seems to be a discrepancy with the recording and my practice chanter. I'm not asking you to give away trade secrets but I just wondered if you have altered the pitch of notes to accommodate the melody, particularly on the ostinato under the main melody.
Thanks in advance!

No tweaking! Just playing in B-minor. Several inversions of chords and arpeggios to fit within the range of the pipes. But no tape and no accidentals. If you have a particular time code on the video, I could give it a listen (I know there's a tiny run during part of the ostinato at one point)

How about the arpeggio at .17?

It's built around an F♯ minor chord/arpeggio, with a little sixteenth B between the low A and the C♯ in the ostinato.
