Are you familiar at all with the music of Michael Card?  He is a long time Christian Recording Artist, but many of his songs on the Album "Poema" are purely Irish Traditional Music.  My favorite song is entitles, "Louden's Prayer."  I realize that I have not gotten any answers from you but I just wanted you to know.

Dear Eamonn -- Things are getting better with the Whistle.  I am getting the scales down and am learning simple songs to get the breathing, and covering the holes right.  Perseverance and Practice (the two P's) are what it is going to take to get me there.   The Irish Penny Whistle is a wonderful instrument.  I want to learn the Recorder as well, but that is going to have to wait. They are somewhat related.

Eamonn:  Sorry about messing up the spelling of your first name, but after all, I am an American.  I watched you play the Whistle with your brother on Youtube doing the Kesh Jig.  It looked intimidating to a beginner but I realize I have to "walk" before I can "run." so it is back do doing scales, and practicing notes, breathing, and covering up those holes.  I just love the Penny Whistle. I'm gonna do it!

Hi Eamon:

My name is James C. Moeller and I am in Omaha, Nebraska USA.  I hope to play the Irish Penny Whistle well.  Hoping you or others on the site can help me.  First of all, a question:

1) I noticed when practicing the scales that the low D is hard to play because your blowing has to be precise.  When playing the High D, I find I have to blow harder to avoid the "Tweek."

2) Covering the holes - I think I am getting it, but it get's tricky. Do you have a good tip for covering the holes properly?  Is there a technique I can use?

3) Do you have book of songs, that a person starting out can learn from?  

Sometimes just playing around with the Whistle helps.  Any suggestions would be great.

Also, my Father's name was Bowen, and that family is from County Cork.

Greetings to all my Irish brethren from the US.

James C. Moeller

You guys were fabulous last weekend at the Dayton Celtic Fest. I still can't believe you remembered my name after four years!
