Tips for learning the fife
I recently decided to start learning a small portable instrument to take with me where taking the fiddle isnt possible, and decided on the fife.
So onto ebay i went to buy a cherry fife in D from Angus fifes. (D seemed to make more sense for playing irish tunes on)
It arrived a couple of days ago and it looks great, but now im trying to figure out how you play the thing! I can get a short burst of D on it, but as i rise up the scale i just end up puffing furiously at it. What shape should my mouth be as i blow? how hard should i blow? at what angle? etc etc
Any advice on it would be great
