Trouble with Seery?
I play whistle in the main although was taught and played flute whilst at school and for several years after. A decade on, I am playing whistle in a scottish trad band and thoroughly enjoy it.
The call of the flute led to me buying a second hand keyless seery last year which is beautiful, except when I am playing it! It seems to be so unforgiving. I really want to pursue the flute playing, it is where me heart is, but I don’t seem to be getting anywhere. My hands ache, my embrochure is rubbish and my mouth aches. My hands are quite small (too small to play a low d whistle comfortably). I practice as much as I can between practicing the whistle and wonder whether this is going to take years or have I started with the wrong type/make of flute?
Thanks for taking the time to read, any advice would be great.
