Subject: RE: Bagpipe tune
How do you play the bottom G note on an A whistle Jack ?

Cheat. (I think the version played in sessions round here may be a little different from the standard one). In practice if I absolutely have to play the thing I'll do it on an alto flute or G alto recorder, which finger much like an A whistle but have a low G as well. Don't recall having to use that low G on this tune, though.
