Nipperquin’s (reel) Whistle Dots

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.

Brian Finnegan is an excellent flute player, Michael Mcgoldrick is my all time favourite, but Brian comes definately second lol – But that’s taste and the flavour you like best. They are to say the least amongst the best.
