Tips to play better your Feadog Whistle – Cover the wholes completely

Tips to play better your Feadog Whistle – Cover the wholes completely


by Joao Ferreira


After months at home due to the quarantine playing at home. It is time already to play in the schools, parks and at home

So, I consider it is the moment to motivate you to play and show your performances on our Feadog Original Irish Whistles.

So, I start the series of tips to play better your Feadog Whistle: cover the wholes completely

A tiny gap in the fingering holes can destroy your sound! It’s kind of an unfair thing that such a small part of the tin whistle can make such a tremendous difference.

It takes time to get used to the gaps between the holes and it takes practice to learn to cover the holes completely while your fingers are moving quickly through your songs.

Practice a song slowly and only play faster when you are strong and confident in your song.

Proper Fingering Technique

One easy thing to pay attention to is how flat your fingers are. Unlike piano, you don’t want to have curved fingers. Although a slight curve is natural, your fingers should be mostly straight. If you’d like.

As far as which fingers to use where, you put your non-dominant hand on top and cover the first three holes with your index, middle and ring fingers respectively. Then, the bottom three holes are covered by your dominant hand with the same fingers.

It is always good to remind everyone to wash your hands and keep social distancing.

I believe after this tip, you will be inspired to learn how to play our Feadog Whistles better and better. So, browse our website and look for the one that suits you. If you are already a player becomes our fan visiting our InstagramFacebook and Twitter to be aware of tips and further information.
