Coming up...

0:00:130:00:14

The Super Swans make

history in the FA Cup!

0:00:140:00:16

And we meet the ten-year-old

0:00:160:00:17

learning to play the

bagpipes with one hand.

0:00:170:00:25

First - it's freezing!

0:00:260:00:27

This is the scene here

in Salford where the snow

0:00:270:00:32

has now started to melt.

0:00:320:00:34

And across the country

lots of you have woken up

0:00:340:00:37

to more of the white stuff.

0:00:370:00:38

Loads of you have been

in touch to tell us

0:00:380:00:41

about the snow where you live.

0:00:410:00:42

Go for it, guys!

0:00:420:00:45

Hi, I'm Mia.

0:00:450:00:46

And I'm Josh.

0:00:460:00:48

And we're from Warrington.

0:00:480:00:49

And it's snowing!

0:00:490:00:51

And Isla and it's snowing

in Wrexham in North Wales.

0:00:510:00:55

I'm Emily.

0:00:550:00:56

And I'm Agatha.

0:00:560:00:57

And we're sisters.

0:00:570:00:58

And we live in Walthamstow.

0:00:580:01:01

Hello, my name is Jacques

and we're in Guernsey.

0:01:010:01:04

It's snowing for the first

time in five years.

0:01:040:01:07

We're really liking it.

0:01:070:01:15

We hope that school's

going to be cancelled.

0:01:160:01:20

And we can go out

sledging and make

0:01:200:01:22

snow angels and throw snowballs.

0:01:220:01:26

Our school's been

closed down because of the snow,

0:01:260:01:28

so now we're going to be

having loads of fun outside playing.

0:01:280:01:33

Yeah!

0:01:330:01:36

We're going to stop throwing

snowballs at our headteacher.

0:01:360:01:41

The snow feels, like, really fluffy.

0:01:410:01:43

But this one feels crunchy.

0:01:430:01:45

I hope it snows more

0:01:450:01:47

so I can build

a snowman after school.

0:01:470:01:51

I don't remember having

snow like this before.

0:01:510:01:56

So it's good.

0:01:560:01:58

We built a snowman in

the park and then we came here

0:01:580:02:03

and it's very unusual to have

snow next to the sea,

0:02:030:02:07

so we've been very excited to be

off school as well.

0:02:070:02:15

Sport now and amazing news

for Swansea City fans.

0:02:150:02:18

Their team have reached

the quarterfinals of the FA Cup

0:02:180:02:21

for the first time in 54 years.

0:02:210:02:23

They beat Sheffield Wednesday 2-0

at the Liberty Stadium.

0:02:230:02:27

Tottenham or Rochdale

await in the next round.

0:02:270:02:33

Next to an amazing ten-year-old

0:02:330:02:34

who's learning to play

the bagpipes with one hand.

0:02:340:02:37

I went to meet him.

0:02:370:02:42

For Guy, this is a dream come true.

0:02:420:02:46

He's learned to play the scales,

and let's be honest,

0:02:460:02:49

he looks the part too.

0:02:490:02:52

But getting this far

hasn't been easy.

0:02:520:02:54

Guy was born with no left hand.

0:02:540:02:57

I've got a bone missing in it

and I have got five fingers

0:02:570:03:01

but some are really small and I've

always felt special with it.

0:03:010:03:06

Not many people your age

want to learn to play the bagpipes.

0:03:060:03:09

What made you so interested

in that instrument?

0:03:090:03:12

My mum's Scottish so when we go up

there we see my uncle, Neill,

0:03:120:03:17

and he plays the bagpipes.

0:03:170:03:18

So I've seen them before.

0:03:180:03:21

Ready?

0:03:210:03:22

Guy's mum reached out to the

One-Handed Musical Instrument Trust.

0:03:220:03:25

They found Duncan, a music teacher,

who invented this -

0:03:250:03:31

it's called the Pibroch,

a digital chanter

0:03:310:03:34

that's changed Guy's life.

0:03:340:03:36

In each of the holes,

you have a sensor that detects

0:03:360:03:39

the finger positions so you can

actually make the sound

0:03:390:03:42

do whatever you like,

0:03:420:03:44

so we came up with this new version

of the fingering only using the top

0:03:440:03:47

five holes to get all of the notes

that you can play on a normal

0:03:470:03:51

bagpipe chanter using just

using one hand.

0:03:510:03:53

Very good.

0:03:530:03:54

It's not that difficult and you can

just learn the scales and once

0:03:540:03:57

you've got the notes and the sound

you can start learning songs.

0:03:570:04:01

And it's not just the bagpipes -

a whole range of instruments

0:04:010:04:08

can be adapted and modified

to help musicians

0:04:080:04:13

with a physical disability express

themselves musically.

0:04:130:04:16

This here is called the Linstrument.

0:04:160:04:18

It's a keypad connected up

to a computer and it sounds

0:04:180:04:21

just like a violin, a viola

or a cello

0:04:210:04:25

and you can

play it single-handedly.

0:04:250:04:31

Now that Guy has learnt a tune

or two, he's set another goal -

0:04:310:04:35

to play the bagpipes

at Edinburgh Castle.

0:04:350:04:38

It would be so cool being

in front of lots of people,

0:04:380:04:40

being different to everyone else

because everyone would have to blow.

0:04:400:04:44

And I would have to blow

as well but it would be

0:04:440:04:46

much more different.

0:04:460:04:49

And you know what?

0:04:490:04:50

I'm sure it is only

a matter of time.

0:04:500:04:52

Well done!

0:04:520:04:53

How good is he?

0:04:530:04:54

Brilliant!

0:04:540:04:57

We're back in half an hour.

0:04:570:04:58

See you then.
