Thread Name: Tuning an Irish whistle
Subject: RE: Tuning an Irish whistle
Actually, I can play a whistle upside down - no - not from the bottom you fools - although THAT's a thought.... no, and not from MY bottom...

You hold the whistle in one hand, then roll it around so that the holes face your chest with your fingers still covering the holes, then apply the other hand so it wraps around to where the fingers go... your wrist have to tuck under... and your elbows stick out in front like a crazy chicken...

I didn't say it was easy..
