    That Shooters” band should have a wee listen to the 78th at Kincardine on YouTube. THAT is how a “D’ is SUPPOSED to sound!”

    Well done to Peel – continually improving! Nice playing. Please switch to Sinclair chanters though. You’d go to another level, tonally speaking. The current chanter sound is brassy and harsh. Just goes to show that the ‘precribed control’ of the MSR event is still the best indicator of where a band is at regarding music – i.e. technique, interpretation, phrasing and expression.

TIP OF THE DAY
To help with strathspey rhythm, think of the dance step, “STEP, together, step, hop.” for the four beats in the bar.
