Top hand on tin whistle/pipes
Hello! I’m 32 and I’ve been thinking of learning to play the tin whistle or something like the Scottish smallpipes, but I screwed up my left hand when I was in elementary school. The only potential problem I see is that the fingers on my left hand will no longer touch one another unless my hand is closed, and the minimum size of the space between them is set by the injury. From what I’ve read online, the left hand is placed over the top holes(for a right handed person). If I can’t manage that, I think covering the bottom holes at a slight angle would be an alternative. The whistle sites say dominant hand on the bottom holes is standard, but the alternative also works.
I was just wondering what your opinions are on it. You all have way more experience than I do, and I trust your advice more than a random website.
