Playing two chanters at the same time.

Made a bagpipe octopus

I think it was Burns Night 2005. We took one pipebag, took the drones out. And added one blowpipe and three chanters.
We were struggling to play the damn beast with 4 people.

A picture should exist somewhere, add it when found.

Xmas tree lights in the drones

I’ve seen some do this, but never with xmas balls also.

Alternative playing

Above in the movie with two chanter you can see tape.
You can tape other notes, for accidentals.

I’ve started a set with our folkband with my hands reversed.

After playing amazing grace, I switched hands every few bars.

Play a tune and slide bottomhand over your top hand down.

Tape or block the bottom sound holes.

A old old movie (2005?), when we lift our knees we close the bottom sound hole on the side of the chanter.
