As in parts 3 and 4, the downbeats are noted by the syllables in all caps.

The range will be between $50 to $200. Look for Recessed or Counter-Sunk Holes in a Practice Chanter One important feature musicians will want to check for are recessed or countersunk holes. This recent innovation makes fingering much easier. Poorly made chanters often have small holes, and these are nearly impossible to feel w
