Whistles in this category are likely to be made of metal or plastic tubing, sometimes with a tuning-slide head, and are almost always referred to as low whistles but sometimes called concert whistles.

The low whistle operates on identical principles to the standard whistles, but musicians in the tradition may consider it a separate instrument. The term soprano whistle is sometimes used for the higher-pitched whistles when it is necessary to distinguish them from low whistles.

Fingering and range[ edit ] Young man demonstrating the use of a tin whistle. Holes are typically covered with the pads of the fingers, but some players, particularly when negotiating the larger holes and spacing in low whistles , may employ the "piper's grip".

With all the holes closed, the whistle generates its lowest note, the tonic of a major scale. Successively opening holes from the bottom upward produces the rest of the notes of the scale in sequence: with the lowest hole open it generates the second, with the lowest two holes open, it produces the third and so on. With all six holes open, it produces the seventh.

As with a number of woodwind instruments, the tin whistle's second and higher registers are achieved by increasing the air velocity into the ducted flue windway. See overblowing.

Recorders perform this by "pinching" open the dorsal thumb hole. This makes available another major scale F on a C whistle, G on a D whistle. The standard range of the whistle is two octaves.

It is possible to make sounds above this range, by blowing with sufficient force, but, in most musical contexts, the result will be loud and out of tune due to a cylindrical bore.

Ornamentation[ edit ] Traditional whistle playing uses a number of ornaments to embellish the music, including cuts, strikes and rolls. Most playing is legato with ornaments to create breaks between notes, rather than tongued. The traditional music concept of the word "ornamentation" differs somewhat from that of European classical music in that ornaments are more commonly changes in how a note is articulated rather than the addition of separately-perceived notes to the piece.

For example, a player playing a low D on a D whistle can cut the note by very briefly lifting the first finger of his or her lower hand. This causes the pitch to briefly shift upward. The cut can be performed either at the very start of the note or after the note has begun to sound; some people call the latter a "double cut" or a "mid-note cut. For example, if a player is playing a low E on a D whistle the player could tap by quickly lowering and raising his or her bottom finger.

Both cuts and taps are essentially instantaneous; the listener should not perceive them as separate notes. Rolls A roll is a note with first a cut and then a strike. Alternatively, a roll can be considered as a group of notes of identical pitch and duration with different articulations.

The short roll is a group of two slurred notes of equal pitch and duration, the first sounded with a cut and the second sounded with a strike.

Cranns Cranns or crans are ornaments borrowed from the Uilleann piping tradition. They are similar to rolls except that only cuts are used, not taps or strikes. On the tin whistle they are generally only used for notes where a roll is impossible, such as the lowest note of the instrument. Slides Slides are similar to portamentos in classical music; a note below or above usually below the intended note is fingered, and then the fingering is gradually shifted in order to smoothly raise or lower the pitch to the intended note.

The slide is generally a longer duration ornament than, for example, the cut or the tap and the listener should perceive the pitch changing. Tonguing Tonguing is used sparingly as a means of emphasizing certain notes, such as the first note in a tune. Tin whistle players usually do not tongue most notes.

To tongue a note a player briefly touches their tongue to the front of the roof of the mouth at the start of the note as if articulating a 't' , creating a percussive attack. See 2 questions about The Clarke Tin Whistle…. Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia.

Instead of giving you mindless exercise after mindless exercise, it teaches a concept and then lets you use that concept on a actual Celtic song. Great Book! This arrived on Valentine's Day. So far, I've played through all of the lessons most of them passably well - needs more practice and the first few pieces. I've had my pennywhistle since Williams-Mystic, and am only now properly learning something besides the Mingulay Boat Song.

Since working on the basics, it's also become easier to pick out pieces on my own other than Christmas carols , like Lady Franklin's Lament. Also, the CD is helpful. But mostly I love this for the exercises and s This arrived on Valentine's Day. But mostly I love this for the exercises and sheet music. It remains to be seen how much longer I'm going to be able to tolerate my pennywhistle's off-keyness, though. Not too bad for starters.

Not that there is something better out there in the market. I haven't finished it yet but it is very easy to follow and learn. I just hope by the end of the book I have at least mastered the fingerings and will be able to play at least one Irish musicale. Steve S.

Jf YQU blow too softly you will hear a muftled fuzzy note.

The D whistle is the most common choice for Irish and Scottish music. Cranns Cranns or crans are ornaments borrowed from the Uilleann piping tradition.

When Robert Clarke invented his tin whistle in , little did he know that it would have such a great impact on so many different music genres. Clarke style rolled metal whistles tend to have an airy "impure" sound, while Generation style cylindrical instruments tend to have clear or "pure" whistle sounds.

The whistle is identified by its lowest note, which is the tonic of the lower of two major keys whose tonics are a perfect fourth apart that the whistle most easily plays in.

I fancy upwardly. Look over my other articles. I have always been a very creative person and find it relaxing to indulge in ribbon.
