This is slightly different from the other Doublings. From any note, make High ‘G’ and double it by simply striking your G finger on and off the chanter quickly. From High ‘G’, this is just a strike. As you will see, coming from High ‘A’ is odd, and indeed does not double the note. It does however serve the same musical purpose - to make the note stand out.
