Stealers Wheel "Stuck in the middle with you", and Bachman-Turner Overdrive "You ain't seen nothing yet". Whistles can do traditional *and* contemporary

It's been a long time since 1970s music was 'contemporary'. :lol:

The main press in making a double english tabor is getting an octave from two pipes in harmony with one hand. My prototype I posted has already been modified to move the G pipe down to the same hand position as the D pipe. With another pair tuned in fourths, I’d be able to play four pipes with two hands. The harmonic palette this would offer is wider than a traditional drone flute. It’s always nice to see someone applying their knowledge to new situations.
