Browsing through the internet and reading many articles I realized 10 memories that all Irish person has about learning how to play our Feadog Whistle. One or more of this memories you will be identified with.
So, in this article, I selected the first 5 memories.
1- The day your book list included the words ‘tin whistle’ was a joyous one
At that day you were sure that you would become a Tin Whistle Legend, as Mary Bergin or Paddy Molloney.
2- The suspense about whether your Mam would get you a blue and silver whistle or a gold and green whistle was real
And we always know that we would get a Feadog Whistle, and we were very happy about it.
3- The day you learned the finger placements for “do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti, do” on the tin whistle was a gamechanger
How nice is to find out what the music is about.
4- Even if you sometimes messed up the high notes
I really understand my parents now and how patient they were.
5- You had a folder full of sheet music like this
It was impossible to learn music from that thing. We just followed the holes.
