This bagpipe lesson is for Winnipeg Police Pipers. Bill breaks the lesson down into sections with commentary for each section.
The tune is a 6/8 March and was composed by Pipe Major Bill Robertson.
Remember the basic beat rhythm of compound time Marches and the like 9/8 etc., is: 1—2,3-; 1--2,3- and so on. The 3- must have the relative value of the remainder of the beat without being too soon onto the next beat. This tune is not difficult except for the fourth part bars four to five that needs some broken down slow accurate approach at first for some pipers.
Tachums should be nice and clear without clipping. Study of the video and audio should help.
