Well my progress on the Tin Whistle is not that great, but I am making some progress. For a while I had been using the crutches that the books had put in the music telling what holes to cover on the whistle. But for the last couple of weeks I have been working on being able to work without needing them, I have found in my churches music there are a few tunes that are in the right key so I can play it, I need the music to have the F # instead of having just plain F. I can also do a C # or a C natural, but all the other notes have to be natural. I have to really work on the song to get to a point where I can really “play” it. I still have to think about what the fingering needs to be when I play the note. I also really need to practice the 1/8th notes, I am ok with 1/4 notes and larger, but I have trouble with things that are less then a 1/4 note.
I am hoping that by this time next year I will be 1/2 good.

  1. Some one from NYC says:

    Cool, when you finally get it sounding good will you post a recording online?

  2. Maybe maybe not, I don’t know
