flute breathing vs tin whistle breathing
Hi. Well, first off I wanted to say I’m new here. I’ve browsed the site before quite a few times. Thought it was about time I made an account.
Now my question: So I’ve been playing the tin whistle for a bit under a year now and while I’m alright with fingerings and some ornamentation (slides and trills), I sound absolutely horrid. I didn’t think that was the case until I recorded myself playing for the first time. It sounded very screechy. I don’t know why I couldn’t hear how bad it sounded, think I have a bad ear or something. - Anyway, with that aside, if I have this sort of trouble with breathing too hard and heavy for tin whistle, will it be the same for flute? - Oh, and don’t get me wrong, I’m not going to quit playing the tin whistle because of the breathing factor and switch completely to flute. I fully intend on learning both to the point where I can perform them solo or in a band.
