A new one from jrc:

I used the Gen Bb and guitar. I have no idea what the original is supposed to sound like - probably nothing like this version!

Canu Cwnsela

Nice tune and nice playing.

Wassail, according to this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wassail "the term itself is a contraction of the Old English toast wæs þu hæl, or "be thou hale!" (i.e., "be in good health")." So, putting my mind to work, I take it that 'wassail' is an early version of 'wassup'.

Super clip! Isn't the Gen Bb a fantastic whistle. Love your guitar playing.

Here is a group doing a modern wassail over apple trees. It is still done where i am from to protect the apple trees from evil spirits. We pronounce it wusseling.

Thanks guys -

I had hear the term 'wassail' previously but had no idea about the reality of the practice ... you never know what you'll learn from PWA :lol: !

I'm liking the Bb more and more ... another example of good advice from PWA members. and no tweaks ... just the 'out of the box' whistle.

It's a good excuse for a drink and sing song in Cornwall.

The Cornish off on another pagan booze-up. This is walking distance from home in Cornwall.

Cornish funeral. Another good reason for a boozy wake. Note traditional Cornish bagpipes and kilts.

Cornish Celtic Gorseth - (Celtic festival) Another booze-up at the end of the day.

Jim, you're right. We don't need much of an excuse. :D

Thanks Shadoes - I found it on the internet, but I can't get the link to open now. Looks like Adrians' whistle tabs are your best bet at this point.

You are right! Before my time though. 'Maori' was bought in '73 but we were not in YWAM til 1982.

I really do think we should try to keep to topic here as otherwise it will be very difficult to find the Christmas music clips. :oops:

Great idea! A harp would give it just the right amount of "sparkle". 8)

Played it on my Tommy-tweaked C, because that's the whistle that sang it best. I thought I was going to record it on my new Gen Bb, but I'll have to find another tune that works better for it.
