Tom, wouldn't you consider that kind of venting out of scope for learners? It seems like something that would foster bad habits if attempted too early.
Well its the kind of thing i would introduce to students in the first 6 to 9 months depending on progress. Mind you that's a student who is attending lessons every week.
I was taught 'Tabhair dom do Laimh in my first 6 months of learning so in order to get those staccato B's you'll need some kind of technique to get there.

Tried that third D Mr Gumby, it was handy enough to get into coming from second octave E and straight into the third D with same amount of pressure, nice enough note...but couldn't see myself ever using it. thanks for the tip thou.

That's way out of my league Mr Gumby ....just started yesterday to learn "King of the fairies", and having a hard time learning it lol. The urge is there....but its just not coming together.
