B Phrygian

(Not G Major. B Phrygian)
Inspired by a video of an Andalucian kind of whistle playing in Phrygian I decided I wanted to play something in that mode. This weird thing is what I came up with.

Wow. This is a really sweet tune. It sounds really cool in G Phrygian (as you performed on the Bb whistle, Pere).

I second Jeffery. Lovely piece!

And we absolutely LOVE this tune!

Re: The Phrygian Whistle

I love this tune! Besides the fact that a reel in frygian mode it is possibly something completely new that has never been done before, the composition it is extremely good.

Re: The Phrygian Whistle

Good tune!

The Phrygian Whistle, X:4

For those that like to listen the audio output of the music score I did this setting with no rolls.

This setting is exactly the same as setting X1 but all the offbeat rolls have been replaced by three crotchets on the same note. For the rolls on the beat I left the dotted crotchets.

For the audio in setting X1 the software of thesession is playing all rolls as dotted crotchets and in the case of offbeat rolls that is not really acceptable.
