Low whistle question
To my fellow low whistlers, a question…
I’ve been struggling with a wonderful Howard low D, trying to get used to it. I’ve learned the piper’s grip, which makes playing the beast possible.
When I play C sharp on my regular whistle, my right pinky provides leverage and support so I don’t drop it into my pint (which would be quite embarrassing) but this doesn’t seem to work very well on the low guy.
What advice do you have for C sharp? Is it played the same as on the high whistle or is there some special trick I should know about?
(PS-thanks to all of you on The Session for all I’ve learned about ITM in a short time.)
