Improving Paddy’s Leather Breeches

My main focus for this week is to improve my technique and speed with this tune. It’s improving, for sure!

My practise session still consists of mostly bagpipe and tunes I’m relatively confident with, plus focusing on Paddy’s until my lips go sore.

I’m noticing improvement.

Still here and still practising

OK, it’s been a long time between posts. Call it laziness. As for my practise regime, well that wasn’t too bad; of course it could have been better.

Status updated:

Can play three tunes from memory on the pipes as a medley. By the fourth tune, I start fizzling out. It is progress since I’ve never reached that point before.

The pipes are still not tuned and so I’m still just on two tenor drones because that bass is radically out there and seriously reduces listening pleasure… even to my ears.

With the tuning, it’s time to get out of the house and get in touch with a local pipe band to get that sorted. Although I will probably not join them as a band member just yet.

That’s all for now 🙂
