Trying to play penney whistle. cannot read the music too well but have found I can do better playing by ear. want to learn the pipes but have not got the nerve to try.
Love to sing along with the music but then the Dog howls at the distraction.

Was learning Highland pipes from a friend of the family, but then I moved to TX.
Haven't had the opportunity to pick it up again. Don't even know who to learn from (I've done some websearches, but the time and cost for most is too much. I have a family of 4 children and a new one on the way...aka no cash.)

My biological mom is English, Irish, Scottish.  My biological father is English/German.  Guess that makes me 1/5 German, 1/5 Irish, 2/5 English and a fifth of Scotch!

Low 'd' is quite a stretch but I manage to hit the holes most of the time. Broke a finger tonight so I won't be picking it up for a bit (I'm ok... it's not my driving finger!!!)
