I turned the camera onto myself playing on the Low D yesterday - here's hoping you like it!

I saw a post below asking about lessons via Skype so just to say, I'm happy to meet up that way if anyone would like to, just drop me a wee message.
Best wishes to all whistlers!

Very cool! I know nothing about all that electronic stuff, it's amazing to me.

Two questions:

1) what make whistle?

2) are those pipes on the bench behind you?

I played around 20 minutes on my Goldie Low D last night, at a memorial service I pipe at annually.

I play pipes at the beginning and end.

In the middle, while they read the names of those who have passed, I play airs on the Low Whistle.

Due to airs having those long notes I really want the most air-efficient whistle I can find, which in my experience has been the Goldie.

I don't think about what I'm going to play, this year it was

The Coombe
Roisin Dubh
A Spailpin, a Ruin
Ar Eirinn ni Neosfainn Ce Hi


I had considered trying my Alba Bass A this year, it's lovely, but takes more air. I took the easy way!

That’s a great idea! We have a memorial service each year on All Saints’. I should play some airs while names are read.
