Bagpipe FAQ : There is more than one kind of bagpipe? : Great Highland Bagpipe (GHB) :
I can play the practice chanter better if I finger the notes like I do on a tin whistle. That's O.K., isn't it?
|Moderator: firstname.lastname@example.org (inherited from parent)|
|Well, no. The practice chanter approximates the sound you get from the pipe chanter, but not entirely. If you finger the notes incorrectly on the pipe chanter, you'll find that you often fail to produce a true tone. Also, you'll find it impossible to correctly perform many of the common gracings.
