Tinwhistler Tinwhistle Preferences (40) RE: Tinwhistle Preferences 20 Aug 98

Thank you, all. I think I may get a low G or A. I love the low whistle sounds.I like the sound of my Generation Bb too, but you're right, Alison, it's really only for solo play.

I have a buddy I get together with to play guitar and fiddle. Sometimes we set aside the guitars and he plays Middle Eastern drum rhythms to my Celtic whistle. Sometimes, it sounds awful. But often it sounds interesting and different at least, and amazing at best. And, I can play any key whistle without trouble! Give it a try if you know a hand drummer!

I have a PVC keyless Irish flute that I'm trying to play now. The reach is very far between the holes, but the fingering is just like a whistle. Too bad I have such small hands.

Keep on whistlin' Sue

PS--Dan, I'm a Pisces :-)
