5 Nov 2015 – New version of “World of Bagpipes” available

 
There’s a new version of “World of Bagpipes” available on the iTunes App Store:

Added additional chromatic note options for Great Highland Pipes, Border Pipes, SmallPipes, and Uilleann pipes:

Based on the standard GHB fingering where the lowest note on the chanter is named G and the drone is named A (independent of the actual pitches produced), the fingering for the new notes are as follows:

(X = closed, O = open, listed thumb first then the fingers from top to bottom of the chanter)

Bb: X XXX XXOX
C: X XXX XOXO
F: X XOX XOXO
G# (high): X OXX XXXX

The Sackpipa is really it’s own thing, and didn’t get any new notes in this update.

Added alternate fourth interval drone option (Eb for Great Highland Pipes, D for Border Pipes and SmallPipes, G for Uilleann pipes, A for Sackpipa)

A huge thank you to Orlan Charles in Brazil for requesting the new features.
