Subject: RE: Help - multiple keys on whistles
Hi folks, Thanks Weepiper,the link is great & leads onto allsorts of other pages I hadn't found before. I now know what a fipple is - but not yet what a chiff is. Can you get paid time off work to recover from WhOA ??? (Whistle Obsssive Acquisiton Disorder). & thanks Bernard, it was the problem of fitting tunes onto whistles I was trying to get (my head) round. It's very frustrating to run out of holes at the bottom of he whistle. I certainly found out lots of tunes don't fit standard major/minor patterns when I tried transposing tunes & then trying to say what key it was in. It's a good excuse to keep practising rather than mowing the lawn.
