- Graded Lessons, Lesson Level, Lessons, Level 2, Piobaireachd
There are potentially four types of piobaireachd movement and they differ in varying degrees to the standard 7-note movement. In this lesson Glenn Brown looks at the different possibilities.
This follows on the his first lesson in this series in which he discussed the various embellishments that would be required for the three pieces he will look at in the coming weeks. The three pieces he has selected, MacCrimmon’s Sweetheart, Grain in Hide Corn in Sacks and Lament for Kinlochmoidart No.1 make use of three different types of piobaireachd variation.
