Tell us something.: I'm a fiddler and, latterly, a fluter. I love the flute. I wish I'd always played it. I love the whistle as well. I'm blessed in having really lovely instruments for all of my musical interests.

Nice effect. I couldn't help thinking that they would have been better actually following the music as written by Pachelbel, ie keeping it in canon. I didn't like the unison parts at all.

'Kate at the Gate' (by Nigel Eaton, originally for hurdy-gurdy)

Me on whistle, with a couple of old comrades in musical crime.

The whistle is a Shaw 'A', with an A drone whistle also attached.

Starts pretty, but ends heavy-metal (well, Nigel Eaton played live with Led Zeppelin, so maybe appropriate).

Warning for the faint of heart: electric effects switched in after about a third of the way through 0:

This was from about this time last year; I'm really really missing proper live music, both playing and supporting others.

'The Balquhidder Lasses', normally a reel but played slow and melancholy.
On a Shaw 'A' whistle with drone whistle attached.
The drone whistle is brought in and out during the first 2 passes of the tune, in a 'call and answer' phrasing, then left in for all of the third pass of the tune.
Just to go drone crazy, I'm also adding more drones from a Shruti box played rhythmically on a foot pedal.

Pop / Rock medley played on a Shaw 'A' whistle. With the help of an Akai clip-on woodwind mike, and a chorus peddle.
Stealers Wheel "Stuck in the middle with you", and Bachman-Turner Overdrive "You ain't seen nothing yet".
Whistles can do traditional *and* contemporary :)
[like those electric lute thingies... guitars, that's it]

Interesting. See my two posts just above (July 17th and July 25th). Both these tunes are played using a strapped on drone whistle. Not using any holes on the drone though, like you are with your 'two half whistles', which means I can play the main whistle exactly as normal. But still a very nice (and different) sound.
