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.
