Yes, I must admit having heard the beginning of the track they do rather detract from it, don't they. Bit pointless.

Whale, I too was wondering, "What's the porpoise?"

Best wishes.

That's the site that Mr G linked to above. I too listened to it there. I don't like the whale sounds either.

Yeah, but I would still like to get the track. I can edit out the annoying whale sounds when I listen to it. After about 40 seconds its just whistle.

I've never tried to play a whale. Does it require piper's grip?

No, there's just the one finger hole on the top...

Best wishes.

I thought it was called a BLOW hole. Just think of the embouchure required for THAT!
