Lesson 5: Uilleann Pipe F#
Watch the video below to learn to play F# and then try the exercises below. Take your time and double check to make sure you are playing each note correctly before moving on to the next lesson.
Things to Remember:
F# Exercise 1
Close the chanter hole in between each note. If you hear a squeaky sound it probably means your not completely covering and uncovering the hole.
G and F# Exercise 1
Close the chanter holes in between each note.
Always take your time with these exercises no matter how hard or easy they seem and make sure your not picking up any bad habits. Play these exercises a couple times before moving on to the next lesson. Make sure when your moving from a G to an F# not to tense up your fingers. As things start to get harder you will feel your fingers and whole body begin to tense up, don't let it. Keep your body and fingers relaxed.
