Brian G. - Phase 2 - Skymans Jig

Phase 2 Result: 11/11 Requirements Achieved

Metronome Clearly Audible? Yes
"Best" Tempo Selection? Yes
Rhythm/Note-values understood? Yes
Rhythms accurate to the click of the metronome? Yes

Overall Rhythm Comments from Timothy:
One or two lurches on a gracenote, but nothing game-wrecking or consistently off. Do try to keep your breaths somewhat smaller, so that pauses for breath don't cause you to lose the groove. @Timothy-Gatehouse

Correct Melody Notes? Yes
Hole Coverage Good? Yes
Crossing Noises? No
Correct Gracenotes? Yes
Missed Gracenotes? No
Gracenotes Too Big/Sloppy? No
Gracenotes Out of Sync? No

Overall Basic Melody Comments from Timothy:
I am really glad that you played through the few squawks that occurred. More often than not, those are caused by over-gripping the chanter. Stay loose! While you work on your preparation for phase 3, strive towards relaxing yourself and improving gracenote size quality, as these are the only minor issues, but will go a long way to improving your playing overall. @Timothy-Gatehouse
