If you want to slow down music and don't want to buy one of those c.d players made to do that, Transcribe! is a good program.

Opinions on if the first section of "Reel Around the Sun" from Riverdance might be a good place to start trying to learn by ear?

Hello Everyone,

I just was informed by Wizard that this thread existed so I thought I would post too. I've been playing the whistle for about 5 years now. I'm not that good at reading music even though I played the flute for about 6 years when I was a kid. I have a pretty good ear and can usally pick up the tune pretty quick. My favorite way to practice playing is poppin' one of my favorite Chieftan's CDs and play along. I've been invited to play at some slow jams, but I've never had the time to go to them. I've heard that this a great way to learn tunes though. Anyway I'm glad to see that there is a thread out here for us whistle players! biggrin.gif

Cheers,

-E

Thanks for sharing with us, Ebendigo! I'm still plugging away at learning, though I haven't been able to practice as much as I would like lately...

I started playing using the Clark Tin Whistle book, it came with a tape and would go through the tunes slowly then at speed. It does teach you how to read music. I have found that notes in folk music are mostly a suggestion I play my mandolin mostly now, not very good but I have found that you can't worry and play music at the same time.

Finally getting somewhere!
I found sheet for "Amazing Grace" online. I used to know it on recorder way back in middle school, and thought it would be a good place to start. So far I think I've been correct. The sheet looks like it's in a key of C, but I'm remembering that playing something of the sort on a D whistle only changes the key you're playing in; nothing else. I've gotten about halfway through it, and there's one segment where this puts me trying to go back and fourth between A/B and a high D though. Being a bear to figure out how best to do this, specially when some of it is between eighth notes and I'm having a little difficulty landing the fingering right on whole notes. Is it just one of these where I keep at it and eventually get it? or is there some way I can help make this section a little easier on myself?
