Ornamentation on Whistles
I am a self-taught whistle player, and the only real instruction i have ever used is a YouTube video on how to play the scale. Ever since then, i have just found tunes on this website and learned them (only about 4), taking breaths while playing when i think it fits the melody and using a lot of embellishments that I use while playing my GHBs (these include grace notes and taps, sometimes a combination of both and when on F sharp, i sometimes use the pibroch embellishment “dare”).
On G I see advanced whistle players playing an A grace note (I don’t know if that’s what you call it in Irish music) and then in quick succession a tap on G as an embellishment. I have used this.
But the question I want to ask is if there are any strict rules regarding ornamentation on the whistle, and if there are, if there is some sort of book or tutorial I can learn them from? You might see that I have opened a discussion recently on flutes, I plan on buying one and I know there are specific embellishments (maybe very similar to the whistle?), but I feel I need to understand the whistle fully before I move on.
Any answers are greatly appreciated.
