Default Canntaireachd source

Well hello everyone...

after al long time, finally another post in the piobaireached-room... and to think it had to come from me

Well here's the deal...

After my last visit to the NPC i decided to study this year to get the "Institute of piping Intermediate certificate". this involves knowing a thing or two about piobaireached (which i don't really...) including canntaireachd (you know... singing piobaireached using Gaelic syllables and expressions which resemble the sound of notes and embellishments). Since i don't know anyone in my wee country who could teach me... i thaught i'd try to teach myself as much as possible, as usual, and ask for more advice when i'm back at the NPC.

So i found this website of the Murray Pipes and Drums from Sweden.

I was wondering if anyone with some knowledge about Canntaireachd could check for the authenticity (is that how you spell that?) of the informatrion given there.


It would be a great help, again.


Thanks in advance,

-Gertje

I'm gonna try and post a scale chart that I used...not sure if it will work here....

I think you are fine with that website, but I only had a quick peek...

and keep in mind that the theory behind piob is prolly more important....for those essay questions....or at least it was when I did my intermediate test....but it is rather fun to sing canntaireachd...especially in loud, reverberating spaces....

and if all else fails....call THE CAPTAIN....click HERE ...he helped me answer all my sticky piob questions...

ok..can't post that particular picture big enough for it to be any use....I'll have a think of where else is useful...

Cheers! and good stuff for deciding to do the test!

Thanks a lot :)

I've got exactly what I need to know about Canntaireachd, just being able to write out some equivalents of some piobaireached movements, but I always like to learn the whole thing, in stead of just small parts, because it gives me a better view and understanding of it all...

There's no way I see myself passing that certificate... but I'm really eager to work and try for it anyway...

...so a lot more questions comming up probably, but if I pass against all odds, I'll be so happy I'll buy you all some Belgian beers and send'm to you... unless you would like to taste it draught (if that's the word for 'out of the tap' [well, those beertaps anyway])... then you can come to the Belgian Championships next year *HINT HINT*

Anyway, better get back to practice...

Thanks again,

-Gertje

I'd love to learn cantaireachd as well if anyone's got another good source.

Thanks for the post Nowan!

Just for interests sake....Here's a site where you can hear mp3s of a couple of the tracks from the Masters of Piobaireachd: Volume 1 (Robert Brown and Robert Nicol...

Hey I've got sheets from the Piping College showing how movements are written and how they should be pronounced.

I'd be willing to scan it on and send it if you thought it would be of any use mate?

I would really recommend the College of Piping Piobaireachd Tutor (New Revised Edition. It takes you through several piobaireachds and teaches you the canntaireachd to go with it all the way through. It comes with a CD of Rab Wallace explaining the lessons and singing the canntaireach examples to you. It sound to me like just what you need.
