You haven't broken any rules, and you haven't caused upset, so far as I know, and nobody has suggested that you have. Ben - Mod*

Plus in this particular case it's doubtful they had access to any trad Kataan tunes!

Also,from "Fandom" site-"Morgan Gendel revealed that the episode's title is an in-joke. "'The Inner Light' was the B-side of 'Lady Madonna.' I thought it would be fun to give every Star Trek episode I wrote a title that's from a different, obscure Beatles song."

So we go from a name of a song,to a name of a TV show episode,to the name of a (different) tune.

Tell us something.: I play whistle and want to talk to others who do also. I need to pad this out to 100 characters. 100 characters is longer than it seems to be when one is typing. Perhaps I'll overshoot.

More importantly, anyone have sheet music scored for the whistle?

The ocarina version has been folded in various ways. There is what seems to be a whistle version on YouTube.

If nobody gets it done in the next week or so I may have time to do it.

I didnt realise it was for sale. Good grief. The 'creator ' claims to have paid 50 dollars for the original whistle.

'It is basically a custom-built Irish-style "tin whistle"'
Nope, a custom-disguised Irish-style "tin whistle"...

'(an instrument similar to a those Medieval-style Recorders my classmates and I were forced to try playing back in grade school)'
Um, no. I bet they weren't 'Medieval-style' Recorders! Vaguely baroque-derived, perhaps.

I think this guy's saying he paid that for the finished 'replica'.

50 dollars back then, Peter. But if you look the seller up on Etsy right now you'll find a sterling price of £51.98 (but shipment only in the States) which I reckon is an automatic conversion at current rates. I calculate that as roughly 67 dollars.

Sure. But my point was $50 for the finished, painted Meg with case, not for the 'original whistle' as implied by AuLoS303. So the person paying the $50 was not the 'creator'.

I'd not want it at any price, but that's another matter. Don't want a Meg either, but would prefer a vanilla Meg to that!

Sorry, Peter, I misunderstood you. I get it now. :)

Oh, yeah: also a mod here, not a spammer. A matter of opinion, perhaps.

Meg = Clarke Meg (whistle brand and model).
vanilla = original, basic, not badly disguised as something I'd like even less.

Anything else?
