Bagpipe Lessons for Shores Of Argyll


Another one of my favorite tunes is Shores Of Argyll. I particularly like the composition of the unusual second part of this bagpipe tune and prefer not to repeat the first part.


Lesson Pointers


I prefer to play retreat airs at about 84 beats per minute or slightly less than that. I believe this to be appropriate for retreat airs as it brings out the melody well, with controlled beats and it also allows for doublings, strikes, and grips to be executed with good clean clarity.
