What are "light" and "heavy" D throws?
Moderator: (inherited from parent)
The light throw is what is written in modern GHB music. It is best played by closing to low G, playing a D grace note on C, and finishing by lifting to D. The "heavy" or "grip" D throw has an extra low G after the D grace note. It is played by making a grip to C then lifting to D. N.B. Seumas McNeil confuses this issue further by calling the throw on D a D doubling in the College of Piping Tutor Volume I.
