Music from Lord of the Rings on my D Feadóg
This happens to me a lot too. Moving through phases of enjoying different types of instruments that I have at home. I think certain people are just more naturally prone to doing this. Variety can keep us motivated, that's how i see it.
That is a sweet little simple tune with a bit of added interest in the second part. Thanks for sharing it with us!
Strange how things come around... I all but gave up on whistle, preferring the recorder. But I picked up my whistles again and found myself wanting to play more traditional tunes.
Here's one from my recorder book. It's a lovely little tune called Flowers of the Forest, played on my D Feadóg.
I've gone & done it again, an MK Kelpie low 'F' came up for sale, it will be added to my ever growing collection of better quality whistles.
So now I think I need to thin out the collection, the question is, should I try selling the Gens/Faedog/Waltons, or just find a charity to give them to.
I think I favour giving them to those who may not have the resources to buy them for themselves, or where they could be used by multiple students to learn on. (Will have to see if I can find such.)
Funnily enough, I've just bought a glass slide for my ukes, I'd been been meaning to get one for ages, (about a year actually).
Larry that's a really pretty little tune! I like the trills you are doing. You must name this tune, it has a forest/bird feel to it. Maybe something lalong the lines of "Thrush in the Brambles" ...?
I find that improvising in the minor (in this Em on a D whistle) seems to flow more naturally than improvising in the major scale.
