Tell us something.: Hello. I'm a historian and a semi-professional musician living near Washington DC. I play the bass and guitar and focus on jazz. I'm reasonably proficient at both and gig regularly with a Gypsy Jazz band. I'm interested for reasons I can't quite explain in Irish music but find the guitar role mostly uninteresting. I have a good bodhran I bought from a small maker in Clare, and I practice it seriously, and I've recently started playing the whistle and especially the low whistle, which really speaks to me.

I case you haven't seen this, Kyle Borley is attempting to play ALL the tunes in O'Neill's 1001. At a rate of one a day it will take him three years

Tell us something.: I can only hope that my proficiency with the whistle is steadily improving. A few of my whistles get a workout on an almost daily basis. And I'm almost certainly afflicted with WhOAD.

He appears to be playing them on at least four different instruments. I wouldn't be able to play one a day on a whistle; it usually takes me a day or three to pick up a new tune, and dance tunes would cert require more time! Maybe some day I'll pick up a copy of O'Niell's 1001 and give it a go.
