# LESSON 15: MORE DESCENDING UILLEANN PIPE CUTS

You have now learned how to play a cut down one interval but eventually you will want to play a cut from a high note to a much lower note. These are very similar to the last lesson but you will be moving even more fingers at the same time so take you time and make sure your doing it right. Also, Im only showing you how to do this on the first octave but the rules remain the same for the second octave so give it a try in both.

Don't expect to get through this lesson in a single sitting. There are 10 different cuts here and each one needs some practice to be able to do properly. Also, don't be afraid to use the pause button in the videos to see exactly what my fingers are doing. I have tried to do it as slow as possible, but I can only do it so slow.

Also, remember when your doing a cut down to a Bottom D you need to take your chanter off your leg when doing the cut.

## A to Cut D

Don't be surprised if your chanter squeaks a little bit when going from an A to Cut D. It takes a lot of practice to get the pressure just right on this cut.

## B to Cut D
