Like everyone that takes up an instrument , I have reached that plateau. where learning has stalled on my violin. We all then have to step back at this point and take a break and regroup.

So while I'm taking a break from the violin. I picked up a Bagpipe practice chanter.

I have come to the conclusion that is instrument is even more evil then the violin.

I believe that someone started out to make a Duck Call and everything went downhill from there. I mean even in the tutorials they say the reed should sound like a duck when setting it up.

So now I am torturing my family with this Evil instrument, wish me luck...lol

whatever you do be happy at it.

With violins there is no fretting over the music.

Pretty neat!!! Have fun with your new instrument 🙂 In the house I grew up I would often hear the police bagpipe group playing. I always rather enjoyed the sound.

Just to say that plateaus are normal stages of learning any instrument.

You have to keep plugging away, working on things, and eventually you'll begin to progress again.
