First Octave A#-Bb
X | XXKO | XXXX | X
This note is obtained by playing a A note plus the G# and Bb keys on the back of the chanter. It is one of the important keyed notes on the chanter as it is used, together with the F sharp key, when playing in the key of G minor. You will note that the design of the keys allows you to slide between G# and Bb at the same time opening or closing the G note holes. You can swell the note by lifting off the knee. Vibrato can be obtained by use of the lower fingers. Tuning

Not very clear on diagram but the B finger hole is only half covered. I achieve this by rolling my finger towards the top of the chanter and stopping when I hit the pitch.
Tuning dependant on players skill.

This is a handy approximation to a Bb when coming down from notes above especially in quicker music. Try B Bb B instead of a b roll.
