Meghan H. - Phase 3 - Mrs H.L. MacDonald of Dunach

Hey Meghan! Thanks for your submission. Well done! You improved drastically since last time! Your posture is excellent. Watch out for phase 4 when you add the chanter (see below). You might not have the bag entirely full the whole time. That might come up as you work the tunes on the pipes. Congrats and good luck in phase 4!

Phase 3 Result: 7/7 Requirements Achieved

Bass drone at 45 degree angle? Yes
Blowpipe in center of mouth? Yes
Chanter position centered? Yes
Squeezing Arm impinged? No
Frantic blowing cadence? No
Blowing Steady? Yes
Drones out of tune (with each other) No

Overall Basic Instrument Operation Comments from Andy:
This is vastly improved! Your posture looks so much better. How does it feel? Good job tuning the drones in the beginning there. There is some minor variation to the ear but you are doing much better here. A side note is to make sure you are playing with the bag full. It looks like you aren't quite all the way full here with as much as your arm moves. Creating a nice sound so it didn't affect that but watch out for that in phase 4! It might come back to get you a bit when you add the chanter!
