It might be worth analysing recordings of a good piper or two playing
   in E minor and in G, to see if they squeeze the B that little bit
   harder in the minor tunes, to bring it more in tune with the E/B
   drones.



   They may not do it consciously, but the B that's a true third above G
   is a bit below the one a true fifth above E; at least if the fifths
   from G to D, D to A, and A to E are tuned (almost) justly, which you
   need for playing in G D and A minor. Squeezing a little harder could
   easily compensate this.
