Learning To Play The Breton Bagpipes

 

This is a chart of suggested fingering for the Veze Poitou or Veuze. It was developed by Jim Meloche based on notes from Brian McCandless of Elkton, Maryland. Since each of these intruments is unique, some variations from this chart should be expected. The fingering represented here is for The Meloche Veuze, verified with an electronic tuning machine.

Brian is a Veuze scholar and player. He has also constructed a Veuze in (G), creating the blowpipe, drone and chanter from a local apple tree.
