j0_77-- OK--What's Fleadh? How do I check out "the Clare 'school'"? Who's Capt. O'Niell? What are some of Micko Russell's recordings?
I just started playing the pennywhistle in February, subscribed to Chiff n Fipple in March, and I have managed to miss all of the above references. When I play with my partner, I usually lead the melody, but sometimes I play a harmony drone behind the fiddle melody. I'm not dextrous enough yet to do the cascades of notes I hear on pw recordings, but I thought that was what I should be working towards. How does this "simple rhythmic pattern" sound?
