Rhythmic Fingerwork Book with CD by Jim McGillivray
Serious about improving your piping technique? This is the exercise book you need to fine-tune your skills. Originally trained by Ed Neigh, Jim McGillvray has become one of the best known players in North America. His mastery of each bagpipe movement led to the development of this book and the 141 exercises it contains. The book is spiral-bound, so it will lay flat, and it comes with a companion CD demonstrating all of the exercises. The exercises in Rhythmic Fingerwork are perfect for all levels of pipers, except those who have no experience on the practice chanter.
From Jim McGillivray's Introduction to Rhythmic Fingerwork: "This is a music book.  It appears to be a book about technique.  However, there is only one reason to focus on technique, and that is to play better music.  So consider this a music book..."
