Daniel J. - Phase 1 - Jig

Overall Rhythm Comments from Grader:

Hi Daniel. You really seem to understand these rhythms, you are also very accurate with the click most of the time. You got slightly ahead toward the end of the 1st part but you quickly corrected yourself. So it was very minor. However you forgot to take the repeat in the 1st part. Having said that I loved your 2nd part. You have good mental stamina to keep those even 8th notes so accurate for so long. Very impressive. Just pay closer attention to the "road map" next time and you've got this! Cheers, Ed

Not passing Phase 1 is extremely common - so don't panic! Remember, the Freedom Phase process is designed to find your weaknesses, and then to help you improve them. In this case, we need to dig a bit deeper into the basics of rhythm before shifting our focus to the next layer of fundamentals. (1) Make sure you've read all of the fine print in the Freedom Phase documentation, including examples of successful Phase 1 submissions. (2) Make sure you've taken the Rhythm For Bagpipers course here at Dojo U. (3) If you can, sign into a Dojo U live class and get feedback on your rhythm. (4) Email us at any time at support@pipersdojo.com if you've tried everything and rhythm still isn't happening for you. Lastly --- To resubmit another attempt, press the small x next to your existing recording to delete it, and then upload another in its place.
