Bagpipe Tutor Book 1: A Better way to Become a Piper!
A concise yet comprehensive piping tutor book which takes the complete beginner through all the instruction and movements necessary to become a top class piper. Each of the 20 lessons concentrates on a different aspect of bagpipe fingeringwork, with exercises designed to improve dexterity and to develop technique, with suggested metronome timings for their practice. The first tune we learn is Amazing Grace, the well-known hymn. Some students may be able to play the tune accurately after only a few week diligent study of this manual. Each lesson has either a sound or video file to accompany it - so you can actually see or hear how to make the movements, not just read about them. These are available free here.
