I have just recently begun to try to learn the Irish Penny Whistle and I need help finding a good place to learn from! I bought a book for beginners, but it only teaches me the real real basics. Pretty much only the fingerings of the notes. I have a D flute and a C flute.
On another subject I would really love to learn to speak Gaelic and I was wondering what would be the best way to learn? I've looked up books on the internet but most of the ones I have found have real bad reviews...
If you want to learn Irish, Rosetta Stone has it. Buggers don't have Scots Gàidhlig though But, there are some free places to learn it. As mad as I am at them right now (unfair reporting since Alex Salmond took office!), BBC Alba has basic Gàidhlig lessons. It's geared toward kids, but hey, when we're just learning, whatever works, aye?
i too am a player of the wonderful Irish penny whistle, and i'll tell you a great online free course for playing... soon is i remember his name lol. he is a Jesuit priest... um... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0Xf1Ume0zA ryan dunst. he is very good and you can learn A LOT from him. the link is the first lesson you can find the whole series from there. i have a fedog and a clark sweet tone both in d. i'm looking for a c, an a and a g also. good luck and great playing. btw do you know the definition of a musician? its someone that can make noise, any kind of noise. a good musician is someone that makes noise they like. a great musician is someone that makes noise someone ELSE likes. lolololol john
