A low whistle is a tinwhistle or pennywhistle with a six-finger note below B-flat. Focusing on the low D whistle but applicable to all low whistles, this book and CD set offers everything one needs to know about how to play the low whistle, including ornamentation, history, and fantastic tunes. This book can be used by people that have never played the whistle before. The tutor section covers the basics and moves on to explain Irish decorations in detail. Even if you already play the standard-size tin whistle, you will find many parts of this book useful in terms of technique. The tunes section contains many unusual pieces which have been researched and collected from many sources. These highlight the characteristic sound of the low whistle and range in difficulty from easy to show off! The enclosed free tutor CD contains 79 tracks, covering approximately the first half of the book.
