Lesson 8: Bagpipe Grip
Learn how to play a bagpipe grip. Take your time with this lesson, watch the video tutorial and go through the exercise slowly. The traditional name for a grip is 'Leumluath' pronounced 'Lem-Loo-Ah'. However, the movement is typically know as a 'Grip". A grip can be played between any two melody notes between Low A and High A. The melody notes on either side of the grip are usually the same, however, they are sometimes different notes. When played properly you will hear two short Low G notes separated by a very short D grace note.
