What tune are you working on this week?
General penny whistle or music discussions
Ok, so I discovered that one of my favorite Christmas carols is actually not too hard to play on the whistle... yay!
Was working on it last night a little. Bring a Torch, Jeannette, Isabella has lots of interesting parts to it and is an old carol (I'm not generally as fond of modern carols). Yet it sounds more complicated to play than it really is.
I found a nice whistle tab to it online as well, by a John Atchley:
I can't find Mr. Atchley's site or book online (maybe one of you can find it?) as it'd be nice to buy his tab or at least thank him or link to him. But this one image was randomly on Pinterest and I was able to use it to play the carol from the key of G position for a D whistle.. which is an easy approach. Of course you can play it exactly the same on ANY key of whistle, and I'm liking it on my Bb whistles. (my cat likes it better on the lower whistle as well... lolol)
