I am just starting to learn the Uillean pipes and have a practise set, my query is.
I am just seven weeks in and it is slow, now I did realise that this would not be easy, I am a self taught concert flute player so have some musical knowledge.
My question is, how long have other novices found that it takes to get some sort of tune from the pipes and how do they get to the second octave easily ( does the Reed need to be played in.).
Thanks for any comments/help.
