Re: Tune book suggestions

Thanks Mr. Gumby!

Will go ahead and buy "Dansons la Morvandelle" just on the recommendation of your emojis doing the wave! :thumbsup:

Re: Tune book suggestions

Although Irish music seems to be the most popular type for the tinwhistle, I've been practicing/playing US Civil War era tunes. In looking for something a little different, has anyone used "Dansons la Morvandelle, Second Edition"? It is a collection of traditional French dance tunes. Just ...

Re: New CD "Chinese Music for Irish Whistle"

That's an interesting way of doing music notation. I learned something new today!

Re: New CD "Chinese Music for Irish Whistle"

Any chance on sheet music being made available? Having lived in Korea for six years while in the Army, I have a fondness for music from the Far East.

Beautiful music, will have to add this to my wish list for when I have some extra money.

Re: Beginner seeking a 'better' Tin Whistle.

As a beginner myself, I currently have two D whistles. I originally started out with a Feadog in D, but it made hideous screeching noises. Don't know if I had a whistle in dire need of tweaking or it was just me, but after I picked up a Clarke Sweetone I made more manageable noises :party: . Still n...

Re: Period Correct Whistle for Civil War Reenacting

Thanks for all the input... It sounds like I can't go wrong with either the Clarke or Shaw; both of which are affordable and will fit in with the period :D . I've been encouraged to try to pick up the fife as well, but I'm thinking baby-steps. I'd like to get more comfortable and competent with the ...

Re: Period Correct Whistle for Civil War Reenacting

All, Thank you for your input. I appreciate the caution regarding a wooden whistle in camp since I wasn't thinking about what could happen to it (water, scratches, etc.) considering the cost. As for the fife, my daughter tells me the fingerings are basically the same between the Bb fife and a D whis...

Period Correct Whistle for Civil War Reenacting

Hello all, I'm a beginner whistle player looking for some guidance on a "period correct" whistle for American Civil War reenacting - something to play in the evenings in camp. Right now, I'm torn between a Clarke D and a Shaw D due to its all-metal construction. I haven't found an affordab...

Re: Whistles for a brass player

I'm just starting out playing the whistle... having never played an instrument before. I've got both a Clarke Sweetone and a Feadog whistle (both in D) and have issues with the low end of the scale. If I blow "ever so gently", I can get a decent sounding D, but the higher I go, it gets fla...
