How to play whistle in tune?
I do not have a fancy professional whistle, but not everybody I know who plays the whistle does either. I’m not sure how to make it play in tune. I know you can pull the fipple out or push it in, and I see other people do that, but I am not sure how that really works.
Whether I move the fipple in or out, each individual note is never in tune. Blowing my whistle into a tuner, some notes will be flat, others sharp, some extremely so.
I also find it hard to tell on the fly what to do to be in tune. I can hear it is not in tune, but it shocks me, so rather than try to fix it I will just put it down and stop playing. As a result, I rarely play the whistle anymore.
Is it possible to have an inexpensive whistle play in tune? How do you do it?
