I got 45 minutes of practice time in! I practiced everything I was supposed to. I even worked on some places where I was sloppy, tourluagh's (sp) and stuff.

In case you were wondering, a tourluagh (sp) is a low G-grace note followed by a high D-grace note followed by a low G-grace note followed by an E-grace note. Then you finally get to the main note. And that's not the smallest number of grace notes you could possible have in piping, either. A gen-bren has 5, and there's one other that has 5 but I can't remember what it is called. Gen-bren's are fairly easy, but the other one is tricky. As you might expect.If I could do this kind of practicing every day, I'd be really good.
