hi happy,
you wrote this in just 1 day? Sounds great - lively and playful indeed!
I was just wondering, how is this embellishment between B and E (code: "edre") supposed to be played? When I lift just the middle finger between the two Low A's, a logical shortcut, then I get F natural instead of an F#. But I see no other feasible way to play this.
regards, PTP

Edre

Post by happypiper » Fri Feb 20, 2009 5:03 pm

edre is a piobreachd movement, you play e gracenote then a f gracenote
the way ive written it is eg on B fg on LA, but theres other ways to play it
(all on low A is easier) Start off slow and build up the tempo, play B then eg on to LA then fg still On LA then E.
If you need anymore help just let me know

yes, that's what I've been referring to. It's easy to play the F gracenote between those 2 Low A gracenotes by lifting the left middle finger only, but by doing this I get an F natural.
If I play the F "properly" (lifting the middle finger AND ring finger), then I get F#, but then the edre takes me ages. Or is it really just a question of "building up the tempo"?
thanks, PTP

The F

Post by happypiper » Wed Feb 25, 2009 8:09 pm

the f in the movement is just a mormal gracenote
like a G D or E. so i would just build up the tempo until
you are comfortable and playing it correctly.
