Here’s the tune on the session: Out on the Ocean (check for ABC and MIDI etc)
Here on youtube:
And here are the 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 Nipperquins reel – I started practicing this one today.
I have tons of ABC-files stashed in my ittybitty laptop, and I just listen in to them every now and then.
When I Find something I like – I start playing it and add it to my tune collection.
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
Het primitieve muziekproject
Mijn bedoeling is om rond het thema muziek, klank, creativiteit en expressie een breed programma op te zetten met allerlei mogelijkheden voor activiteiten. 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.
Since two weeks ago, I am an official member of the dutch prehistory museum which is specialised in the Dutch dolmens and the Funnelbeaker culture (aka Trechterbeker / TRB ) which took place in the neolithicum.
The dutch word for dolmen is Hunebed.
My place in the team is going to be the music division. So I’m gonna do the drumcircles, drum building, whistle making, mouthbows, clapsticks, rattles and much more of those type of instruments.
I believe in open-source learning. In my idea every person should have the chance to follow and develop their passions, independent of how much money they have or in which part of the world they live. That is why I try to stay as transparent as possible.
So here you can download the Free Djembe Rhythm Book
Well hello there!
Since I play my instruments outdoors alot, and often ask people to spontaniously join in and jam along, I get often asked for my businesscard. I don’t have a paper businesscard yet, and my lastname is not one that people will remind easily. So if I want to network seriously I should have one.
I made a picture today that inspired me to turn that photo into a businesscard, but of course that turned out to be crap.. So I goodled and came across DeGraeve.com. It’s very simple: You fill in your info, upload your image, hit view, and then save it as pdf file.
I did it as well! I don’t have thick paper yet tho, and my printer is acting funny, so if you want my businesscard, you can download/view and/or print it here
