I have a strict rule in my head and heart, no celebrating one holiday till the previous one is over, so I listened to the Christmas posts just now and am already in a Christmas frame of mind.

Shan, awesome, and how surreal to hear my Low D from across the nation and boy are you an argument for learning on high instruments before going low. You took all kinds of experience into that instrument and are doing great thing quickly.

By the way, for all readers, it is actually Shan's Low D, and I know she has lots of great things to offer with it. We did some dealing, (with her hubbys permission) she's sweet, Im shifty.)

I am going to read the how to post tutorial and get in on this, My Reviol is sounding real good out in the garage.

A version of Silent Night on Chieftain Low D and keys. Theres' another version in the Christmas folder with a high D - I definitely like this one better:

Silent Night is one of my favs. That low D version is very very nice.

Haven't listened to the high D version, yet -- the low D version is beautiful!

Thanks guys - I don't think you're missing much with the high D version. I tried to force the whistle on the song and boy did it NOT work. I'll use the Trad on another song - Killavil maybe. I played the high D version for my daughter and she immediately heard it as wrong for the song.

I was really surprised how difficult it was to play. Long slow phrases on a low whistle were definitely a challenge.

thanks for the kind words.

Peace

jrc

Nicely done, Jim. You've got a distinct sound going.

(Blackhawk: So you've joined the growing gang of whistlers at Ezfolk. We aren't ever going to be as big as the ukulele players, but folks will know there are whistlers.)

EZFolk is no doubt uke intensive!! My only experience with ukes to this point was Don Ho and Tiny Tim ... 'tiptoe through the tiny bubbles' ...

But ... some of those guys can really play:

Both are very nice versions -- and I like the high d one just as much if not more. Can't say why.

Really? I didn't think the whistle or the pad fit the song; both are OK, just not for that tune, IMO, but I'm pleased you liked it. Could be that I just 'felt' the low D from the onset and couldn't let it go... I dunno... it was fun playing the Trad. New whistles are COOL!!!

thanks again Keith.

I agree with Keith. I love low whistles, but sometimes the high sounds even better, and this is one of those times.

Yep, I joined up. I'm still not sure why I did, especially after listening to player like jrc (I haven't listened to other artists yet...I think it would just be even more intimidating). But it is rather fun, sitting here at work and listening to my own music on a website I can access from here.

Somehow I missed this post, Jrc. Didn't mean to be rude. :) I maybe should have used the Gaelic title of Stubblefields, but couldn't find it when I was uploading.

This is a nice mix of whistle, tune, interpretation and that personal something or other. I like this one very much.

It's not the smoothest I've done but finding time to record anything is getting hard.

I was delighted that Mark said "Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus" was a Christmas song. Hadn't heard of that song but knew the melody. Hyfrydol is shorter label I used on the mp3. This melody is also used in Robin Mark's version of "I Will Sing The Wondrous Story". What a great melody!
