Sounds like good advice - I'll give it a go with the low D & see if it helps me with it, (the piccolo doesn't seem to be too difficult in that regard).

Here are a few ideas on Irish flute playing with the early learner in mind.

I hope it helps!

Sláinte,

Some good info there Johnathon, especially about embouchure & 'feeling' the tune.

I play other instruments, (not very well), but a lot transfers over to flute & piccolo - I've just got to get a consistent embouchure, & then I'll be able to play flute just as poorly as my other instruments. :lol:

Update on my progress....

My Dixon piccolo I can get some tunes out of, my embouchure on flute is improving, almost to the point of getting out my first tune, so if I can keep on improving slowly, I'll be happy. :)

(On another note, I've put in an order for a better quality flute with off set holes, which should make for easier playing.)

How are the rest of you getting on?

Sláinte,


Great advices Jonathan, I like this one "Play with heart, stop thinking", this is exactly my vision of trad music.

I can see you are from Austin, I have a friend from there, Rob Lifford, he plays mandolin and bluegrass music, he spent a year with his family here in Spain, great guy and amazing musician.


Sláinte.
