Default Re: Holding PC aloft?

Personally, I don't know why it would be necessary to want to play a PC holding it outright... Most guys rest it on something, be it a table or -- if it's a long PC -- their knee or leg.

A pipe chanter isn't played unsupported -- it's held in place by the pipebag -- so playing a PC that is supported by something is probably the closest thing to it.

Good luck either way.

It isn't always that we want to hold it without support. As I mentioned earlier, sometimes there are practices or other situations where, as P/M, I've had to stand up and play the PC unsupported, often to cue drummers or others of tempo, breaks or other.
