Somewhere there's a video of a small circle of pipers, each with his lower hand on the next piper's chanter!

What I would love to do, in a kitchenpiping contest, is to stand between two pipers and play both of their chanters simultaneously, playing the melody on one chanter and the harmony part on the other. (I'm used to doing that because I play Scottish doublepipes.)

I did about 30 seconds of prep before filming this - just wanted to get the finger placement right.

Well done Peter! It's a surprisingly interesting exercise, I've learnt quite a lot from trying to improve at it.

It's a total illusion, the first part is just 1 phrase reversed and the second you just gotta get the reversed low a grab down. Drunk people love it.
