The ‘First Frame’ Long Roll
I was reading Mary Bergin’s tin whistle tutorial book and found the term "The ‘First Frame’ Long Roll " , but as far as I read, I couldn’t find how she define this ornamentation. Does anybody have an idea?
On pages 91 of the vol.2 she goes ;
"There are two types of roll:
1. The ‘Long Roll’
2. The ‘Short Roll’
In this lesson we will deal only with the long roll.
Within the long roll itself there are, to my mind, two distinct forms:
1. ‘First Frame’ Long Rolls
2. ‘Second Frame’ Long Rolls
The reason I refer to them in this way will become apparent later in the Tutorial.
The difference lies in where the emphasis is placed
For now, we will concentrate on ‘first frame’ long rolls. A thorough understanding of
these, and an ability to play them with ease in all of the following Reels, Jigs and
Hornpipes will greatly assist you in assimilating ‘second frame’ rolls and in differentiating
between the two. The ‘second frame’ long roll will be dealt with in Volume 3"
And then continue to explain about the long roll.
I assume what she calls "The first frame roll" refers to the long roll that starts at the first note of four in reel or hornpipe, and "The second frame roll" starts at the second note of four?
I have been waiting for her tutorial vol.3 that never published for 7 years!!
