KickyC Tinwhistle Preferences (40) RE: Tinwhistle Preferences 19 Aug 98

Well, just to be different. I learned on a Clarke whistle and maybe it's just that I don't know any better, but I like it. I like the D better than the C. The C is harder to play. I just got a Susato A because I have a friend who only plays guitar in the key of A. I really like it. It has a wonderful sound. It's a bit more of a stretch, but not so much to make it very difficult.

I do have another question. Since my friend plays in A, he is also prone to play things in Am. I know I should be able to play it on a G whistle, but so many of you say that it is annoying. I like a nice mellow sound. I have a Hall glass flute in G which I can play sometimes, but the upper octave is hard to control on that. I was thinking about getting a G whistle, but now I am confused. Any suggestions?
