Jayne F. - Phase 4 - Kathleen Gillies

Hi Jayne,

Very nice buy-in. Super solid and well tuned bagpipe. Excellent blowing. Both Chance and I had a listen to this and we agree, this is a solid pass. That hard work has paid off! I'd just note some very minor surging on D as an MBA and the one crossing noise that Chance notes below. Now on to phase 5! As you do this, take your time to build in the embellishments slowly and keep building on this foundation you've worked so hard to build. Add in only as many as won't break the rhythmic accuracy, scale nav etc. Choose the right intensity in other words. Great work and we'll look forward to hearing your next submission!


Comments from Chance:

Hi Jayne, Very nice tuning and top hand blowing is much improved from last time I heard you. Great job!
