Bagpipe Video: Beginner Left Hand / Right Hand Technique

This is, so far, one of the best first first bagpipe video lessons I’ve found for somebody starting out.

I’ve learned the scales from other videos, but this one has a critical step others are missing. To do your left hand only, fingers all on, fingers all off. And practice that. And then do left hand all on, right hand all on, right hand all off (keep left hand on). Repeat that.

Especially the right hand, on a ‘long’ practice chanter it can be hard to hit all those holes. And I don’t have small hands either. So this whole thing of cutting away from the scale and just focusing on closing all the holes accurately and consistently seems like a significant reference point towards developing coherence.

It seems more fundamental even than going note by note before you’ve had a chance to fully solve the problem of closing all the holes…

This video also uses bagpipe tabs which is really cool. Sadly, the website this video links out to in descriptions, tryscotland.com, fails to load. I was hoping for dozens more videos like these…

Understanding the Oath

I think I’m addicted to getting certifications. I recently got my Canadian amateur radio Basic Qualification. I also finished an EU GDPR F course online which has no real bearing on anything, but which is interesting nonetheless.

Anyway, now that I’ve racked up enough eligible days as a Permanent Resident in Canada, I’m beginning the application process for citizenship which includes this fun free Discover Canada book they send you in the mail to study for the test.

Because I’m a dork and I like over-studying stupid things, I thought I’d go through it in excrutiating detail…

Section 1: The Oath of Citizenship

Understanding the Oath
In Canada, we profess our loyalty to a person who represents all Canadians and not to a document such as a constitution, a banner such as a flag, or a geopolitical entity such as a country. In our constitutional monarchy, these elements are encompassed by the Sovereign (Queen or King). It is a remarkably simple yet powerful principle: Canada is personified by the Sovereign just as the Sovereign is personified by Canada.

I love that last line: that the “Sovereign is personified by Canada” and that this pretty much near-mystical idea at the root of citizenship is oh, actually, if you think about it “remarkably simple.”

Right, Canada, right.

Look, as someone who has probably subconsciously carried around the dream of “Running Away to Canada” maybe my whole life, I’m willing to buy pretty much whatever at this point if it means I can stick around. Just don’t try to tell me it’s remarkably simple. Permanent Residency, that’s simple. Straightforward. No oaths before Sovereigns.

But like I said, it’s all about the certifications for me right now. Pass the test. Get those papers. Get a stamp. Get a bunch of stamps. Start stamp collecting. Get into rock climbing. Get into paddling. After all, I’m about to become a Canadian, right?

Enable Repeat Mode on Princeps

To enable repeat mode on Princeps:

  1. Say internally, “Princeps.”
  2. Princeps will acknowledge. (May say, “Hi,” “hello,” or “listening.”)
  3. State “Switch to Repeat after me mode.”
  4. Princeps will acknowledge.
  5. Make a statement. > Princeps will repeat it back to you.
  6. To terminate, say “Disable repeat mode.”

Domain of efficacy

Thinking more about Tom Bombadil, and how within his domain he is master… Perhaps this is the field or environment within which his control systems (his “MacrOS”) are functional, i.e., fully-supported.
