My first whistle vid. It's not perfect, but that's where I'm at after five years.

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.

Tell us something.: I've been following Chiff & Fipple as a lurker for quite a while now. Bought my first whistles years ago but only recently finally started to dedicate time and effort to learning how to play them, rather than dreaming about playing them "someday".

Here's my first whistle vid, Playing Banish Misfortune. I've only been playing for 2-3 months total, so go easy on me! Posting it warts and all...I've obviously got some timing issues...especially with the C part of the tune and a few little squeaks here and there. But I'm pretty excited with my progress for the amount of time I've been playing and the fact I'm picking this up as a man in my late 30s!

I also run a banjo/mando/fiddle shirt site at https://harmonias.com/

Wow that great playing! Lovely tone, nice little ornaments and very clean and steady.
Late 30's ?- like that's a handicap? You haven't even hit your prime til you're 50! :)
