Does anyone play a chanter that goes to 3rd octave F . I can get a 3rd E by running up the second octave and lifting the thumb gives a flat 3rd E but if I then lift the two G fingers I get a spot on 3rd E, if I could get the 3rd F what would I do next?

Try the single fingered A fingering for third F, the two fingered fingering for B could get you third G, on a good day.

I have a Brad Angus B that plays up to 3rd octave A (reed by Angus, NOT a hard reed, best chanter-reed combo I ever played). You play the C-nat fingerd D´´´, keep this tone sounding and close the index finger while "at it" (E and Eb are closed - as usual). You then just open the G (E```), the A (F#```), the B (G```) and the C (A```) hole (keep the others opened). Tones that not a man has ever heard (Töne, die nie ein Mensch zuvor gehört hat :) ). Well - you don´t need them at all, but a chanter that plays them is superb, of course. Geoff Woof wrote an article years ago in "An Phiobaire", BTW (and thats where I got the idea from).

I must try wether keys work!

From my own experience (logical): A chanter that won´t play a c-nat-fingered-D``` (there are quite a few) will of course not play the others, either.

I was thinking that this thread should be linked to the other thread on muted pipes.

Thanks for the suggestions but it seems 3rd E is as high as my WBD chanter will go. All fingerings after the back d two fingered g Third octave E just lowers the pitch.

I remember hearing Tim Britton playing up to f via some fingering combination of half tones. No idea how he did it though.
