many of us - performers and listeners - cringe at the grating sounds of untuned
bagpipes? For many players, the desire is there, but the knowledge and technique
needed to tune this complex instrument are not.
Now, following in the footsteps of his groundbreaking Pipes
Ready! maintenance video, renowned player and teacher Jim McGillivray
demystifies the subject of tuning in a thorough, easy-to-understand video. Jim
teaches you how to tune drones and chanters and addresses maintenance issues
that can affect your tuning success.
In this, the first formal treatment of bagpipe tuning ever produced, Jim and
his comic cohort, Duff MacKechnie, give you the knowledge to produce a rich and
harmonious instrument that will engage listeners, rather than frighten them off.
