Frank W. - Phase 2 - Murdo Lamont's Spree

Hi Frank, Very good, you are ready to move on in your journey to bagpipe freedom. The next phase is all about the instrument and perfecting tone. My best advice is when you get to Phase 4 you do exactly what passed you in this phase. Focus on rhythmic accuracy first then finger work fundamentals. The two phase are exactly the same just with the instrument. Congratulations on the job well done. Cheers, Lee
