Overall Basic Instrument Operation Comments from Carl:
Nick work. You've done a great job of getting these pipes in tune and playing steadily. The only point I'd caution you on, as it's at the limit for me, is the position of the chanter caused by the length of the blowstick. A slightly shorter blowstick might easily bring your chanter a little more centered on your body and prevent any potential wrist issues. Your wrist is good here but it looks like you're maybe holding it there instead of it being naturally good. If you have issues with posture or top hand technique in the next phase, try a shorter blowstick. It might make a world of difference for you. But for now, this is a very nice Pass! Great work.
