Pipes Up! Complete Tuning DVD Tutor Video by Jim McGillivray   This complete, in-depth tuning guide for the bagpipes offers instruction from Jim McGillivray, gold medalist and author of the popular piping exercises book Rhythmic Fingerwork. The thorough discussions of techniques and the video demonstrations offer invaluable information in a format that is easy to follow and easy to reference again and again. Jim not only explains how things are done but why, giving a broad basis for understanding your instrument and how to get the most from it. This is an enormously helpful tool if you're transitioning to the bagpipes, ifyou've just purchased a set of bagpipes, and even if you've been playing for awhile and would like to expand your knowledge have some of your questions answered.   "Jim and his comic cohort, Duff MacKechnie, give you the knowledge to produce a rich and harmonious instrument that will engage listeners, rather than frighten them off!"   DVD Chapters on McGillivray's Pipes Up!
