Chanter lessons

DD#2 and I had our first chanter lesson tonight. I think I'm going to love it. I've played the piano for years, and during the high school years was in all the bands and could play pretty much everything. Except the flute. Lousy flute... Anyway, the chanter is not really like a recorder or an oboe or clarinet but a little like them. Tonight we learned the basic scale and my fingers hurt. I really want to jump right to the bagpipes and start the marching but it's baby steps so the scale it is. One day, I'll be posting a vid of me and her marching with the pipeband and I'll be so very proud. For now, it's baby kittens in a paper bag.
