My neighbors must be getting tired of my Tin Whistle

I say this because for the last several days, I have been practicing for 2 to 3 hours a day. I still need to build up the lung capacity, I find at about the 2 or 3 round of a song I start running out of breath and can not keep my lungs filled. Right now there are 10 songs that I am working on, they are 10 Christmas Carols. I am starting to practice them now, that way I have a hope of being semi good at them come December. They are

  • O Come all Ye Faithful
  • Oh come Emmanual
  • We Three Kings
  • O Little Town of Bethlehem
  • Silent Night
  • O Christmas Tree
  • The First Noel
  • Joy to the World
  • Hark! The Harold Angels Sing
  • What Child is this

I should be adding “Once in Royal Davids’ City” to the list soon, but for now those 10 will keep me going with things to practice for a good long while. Also this dang cold I have had for the last 8 days is not helping with my breathing while practicing the music. But come December 1 I will be ready to play these Carols.
I am happy about this because at the beginning I was hoping that I might be able to play one or two Christmas Carols come the Christmas season, and here I am working on 10, so I am hyper close to meeting one of my goals and blasting right past it.
Also over the next couple of months as I practices this more I might not really have the time to post here. I do need to be semi-good by Dec 1.
