2/4 Competition March

The Young MacGregor

The Young MacGregor is a good not too difficult competition March that I find enjoyable and suitable for intermeditae and advanced pipers.

Lesson Pointers

The Young MacGregor should have good value upbeats most notably on high "As", "Es", and "D" (as in fourth bar each part). Downbeat "Es" sing out nearly all the way. Keep the flow, and clarity especially of certain cuttings .i.e. When approaching many cuttings there is a very short 32nd note leading into the cutting that must have enough clarity/relaxation to allow the cutting execution to have the high G grace note clearly on the next 32nd to the good upbeat note. Avoid crushing the two 32nd notes as often happen in bands too.

Use the video and listen perceptively more so to the more detailed mp3 audio often enough.
