Hmmmm ... :-k ... I sense that you're trying to tell me something, Adrian .....

:mrgreen:


I think you need to get a harp, my friend! Any one that loves the sound that much should give it a go! :)

But we have to be mobile and that means having few large posessions. If we ever return to the UK (probably when we are too old to work in missions) a harp would be very nice.

I'll second that. The Judy acrylic is one of the best IMO. I still hope to get a C one day.

Ron - very nice.

Nice, Ron!

I think that may be the first time one of my whistles has been used to record a TPE tune. Kinda cool. 8) Glad you like it.

:D

Lost in love and I don't know much
but I'm thinking of how I fell out of touch,
but I'm back on my feet,
eager to be what you wanted...


(Sorry, I couldn't help myself.) :P

Ron: Nice job. (By the way, I met the student here who knows you. Always fun to have connections.)

Ren-Tin-10: It took me just a second to make the air supply connection. Then I laughed. Now I'm in mild agony because I've got their blasted, breathy music (which I think I liked at one time when I didn't know better) swirling around my head and I can't rid myself of it. Somebody's got to pay for this. ;)

Thanks for the comments people. Did I mention that the JudyK is a great whistle.

Tommy is a real good kid Keith. He has his head on straight.

Nice job. I'm guessing this is a Judy C whistle? Please let us know.

My guess is a Sweetheart Pro that Tommy tweaked for Jim, and added a C tube. I think that's what he was practicing with yesterday when I disturbed him to brag about my new Tommy whistle .... :mrgreen:

Whatever whistle, it sure is pretty - nice & clear. Great playing, Jim! =D>

Well .... I have tried recording with several whistles that I really enjoy playing but when it comes down to it ... it was the Judy C. I can't seem to get the others to sound right on the recordings. I think it probably has to do with the hundreds and hundreds of hours I have played Judy's. It is a very special whistle ... on here I can say it is a blessed whistle ... for it is the whistle that I usually take with me to the girls and it has been a real blessing out there. It is also the whistle that I used in the music therapy classes ... just seems to play God's music better than the Irish I have tried on it! Again could be the hundreds of hymns versus the two Irish ... ya think????? :roll:

Thanks for the comments ... I appreciate them.

Sounds great, Jim. Good job! Now I have to get busy and record this, but I'm having lots of trouble getting the timing right while still getting a breath now and then.

Btw, Jim, which 2 Irish songs do you play?

Nice one Jim. That Judy C is a treasure. Mine is as good a whistle as any I have played.

Nice, Blackhawk! That Humphrey sounds great. Your song is bright and early-morningish. A happy tune.
