Kila transcription

Two reels from Rossa Ó Snodaigh, from kila.
It´s played in two cds: Mind the gap and Handel´s fantasy.
In "mind the gap" it is played with a Bb whistle,
In "handel´s fantasy" is played by solo whistle at a high speed
I think with a C whistle

5:30am

Range

most D whistles can get up to the A above without too much difficulty and a bit of cross fingering
