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...

Thanks for the help and God Bless!

If you want to learn Irish, Rosetta Stone has it. Buggers don't have Scots Gidhlig though mad.gif 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 Gidhlig lessons. It's geared toward kids, but hey, when we're just learning, whatever works, aye?

Alright! I'll definitely check it out! That's true, I'm basically like a kid because I pretty much have no knowledge yet. Haha.

This has really fun games and I enjoy playing them- some of them are harder than they look!
