The little "flips" this kid does and how do I learn them?
YouTube - As the Deer
The "little Flips" are called Grace Notes and can range from a single semitone through to 5 semitones and are NOT included in the note count in the measure - they have no time allocated to them in the written score. You will see them most often in bagpipe music and if you like to see some more, Google "Red Hot Chilli Pipers" and watch - perchance, enjoy. These Grace Notes are considered to be one of the elements that keep bagpipe music more interesting.
I guess I'm going to have to figure out how to make my fingers move faster.............
Wow! IMO this "kid" ain't no bleeting goat, he earns the exclamation, as Thomas Huckaby, a renown performer on trumpet. Not only did I notice "grace notes" but also some trill and vibrato, and yes, when appropriate, fast fingering. I'm looking forward to hearing more performances by him ... and acquiring CDs.
Helps heaps if you know your scales.
I´ve suspected it for a long time:
Youre a bagpiper, not trumpeter, right!?
Isn't that accusation cause for a duel at dawn with weapons of choice?
Sofus stirs in one and all, but nobody cares in particular.
He is Swedish and is sour because no one bothers to fight with him.
He likes surstrømming very well.
He has given his wife a washing machine as a gift
He's playing "grace notes" which are covered in the Arban's book.
Well, for sure he might not have been Swedish were it not for a mercenary army of my Scottish ancestors, and I must admit that today they produce a fine fighter aircraft and one of the best combat rifles there is, albeit the latter is not of their design.
