3 special online resources for tin whistlers
by Joao Ferreira
Browsing through the internet I found out many good tips to our Feadog Fans and tin whistlers. These resources are useful for beginners to more advanced ones.
So, in this article, I selected 3 good online resources to learn and practice traditional tunes. Each of them with their own aims and targets.
1 – The Session
The Session is home to a massive database tunes, all posted in both ABC and staff notation. a tune will have many different settings and variations written out, giving you a wide range of options to learn from. There’s also an active discussion board, a database of recordings, events listings, and a session finder. If you have questions about any aspect of Irish music, search the site and you’ll probably find an answer.
2- Chiff And Fipple
Chiff and Fipple started as a website dedicated to the tin whistle. While it has since expanded to include other instruments, the tin whistle forum is still quite active, and full of knowledgeable posters.
3- Ryan Duns’ YouTube Channel
Duns is a Jesuit priest who also happens to love the tin whistle. He has a ton of videos, including a lot of tutorials on various bits of technique. If you’re looking to learn a commonly played tune, he probably has a version of it recorded, and may even teach it phrase by phrase.
I believe after these 3 special online resources, you will be inspired to learn how to play our Feadog Whistles better and better. So, browse our website and look for the one that suits you. If you are already a player becomes our fan visiting our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to be aware of tips and further information.
