Michael K. - Phase 3 - Curlew

Hey Mike! Good job this week! You are close here. Work to get a little more steadiness out of your drones and you'll have it. Try to keep the bag more full during your blowing cycle. I describe it as "let the bag do some of the work for you" and that means you have the bag very full like a football. Keep it up. You are very close here!

Phase 3 Result: 5/7 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? No(x)
Drones out of tune (with each other) Yes(x)

Overall Basic Instrument Operation Comments from Andy:
Excellent posture! A bit of variance in your blowing that became more obvious near the end. Double check your drone calibration as well. You could hear the drones going out of tune when your blowing varied. That is likely a calibration issue. You are close here. I think another week working on it will be good.
