Out on the ocean tinwhistle dots

Again, i suggest you use TablEdit to use for your own ABC files – If you use the right settings, you get awesome whistledots like mine as well!

A tip if you indeed are going to use TablEdit: adjust the relative speed in MIDI-settings – so it slows down a bit in the stage of learning ;)… at 70% of speed it still swings haha…

Well goodluck! And please let me know if you find my posts useful/helpful :) – in other words: leave a reply! – it’s apreciated.

The pipers Picnic (Jig) for tinwhistle

Hello, it’s been a while since i worked on my tunebook!

Today I decided to pick up old good habits – that includes learning new tunes on the low-whistle.

It’s the first time that I play along with my TablEdit program – that’s the program I use to produce my whistle-tabs.

I made a tutorial on how to use and set up that program for your whistling-needs right here: Sharing traditional tunes

If you visit it on the session.org, you will find two versions, pick the first one – The one I have is part of a set : The pipers Picnic, Kalyana and The black Rogue… I don’t know if you can find it as well as set.

So have fun practicing ;) – I provide the files and tunes and study material, all you have to do is pick up that whistle, blow and make those fingers wiggle :D

 

Good luck!

Mijn inslag op de muziekbeleving en aankleding is vooral gericht op het idee van een stam, gemeenschapsdrang, verbondenheid en klank, ritme en de expressie die daar bijhoort om het eenheidsgevoel te bevorderen.
