Well, after a week of work I can now play a scale without any trouble, working the bag and bellows in harmony is beginning to feel natural

So Ron,

What's the best bit of advice you can give me when my set arrives in about a week? :smile:

Bri~

Take it slow and easy, don't be in a rush, get the feel for the bag and bellows before you worry about playing notes

Definitely in agreement with Ron, I just picked up my loaner chanter with my own bag and bellows and just getting used to working the bellows/bag combination.

I'm the type who gets easily testy, but I've got it in my head now that I need to take the time and develop the patience to learn for the long-run. After a few days with this magnificent creature, I know she will tame eventually;-)

Cheers,

Paul

I don't know if the old girl will ever be tame in the sense that I am master of her, but I think we are slowly learning about each other and becomming friends. At least she no longer squeals the moment I lay hands on her bag and bellows

:smile:

Progress is slow but steady, I can now play Mary had a little Lamb on my pipes so that you can recognize the tune
