I bought an Irish Whistle on a whim….I love it (no one else does) but it has been very relaxing for me. Since I have NO sense of rhythm - I just write my own songs (rather than kill some one else’s creation)
I have had it for about two weeks (it’s a D ) I have been able to get passed the dizzy stage very quickly (not sure if it is because I have normal low blood oxygen or just because I am a talker - but either way the flute has improved my oxygen levels , my nail beds are no longer blue toned)
But, in a short period of time, I have been able to find the different octaves (some time quite by accident, but have been able to repeat them.
I have been able to play it the irish way (sharp and bouncy or the way I like it soft, flowing and mellow where the notes resonate.
But I am having troubles with my B and A - they always sound sharp and harsh. How do I get them to flow like my D, E F, G - so they are soft and flowing.
If I hold the notes a long time, they begin to sound as if they are mellow, but if I play it qucikly - the A and B are not as fluid. They don’t squeal or hiss, the notes are very clear A / B’s but not smooth like that other notes.
Is there something I can do to make my A / B sound soft and gentle or is that the way the notes are suppose to sound.
Any ideas, would be greatly appreciated as it is something I want to work as I ahve many A / B ‘s in my tune
