Thread Name: out of tune whistle !
Subject: RE: Help: out of tune whistle !
Whistles are notoriously out of tune. It's one of the characteristics of playing traditional music, anyway. You'd probably be shocked to find out how out of tune most of the musicians at an average seissiún are. I have a tuneable whistle. I usually try to match my "A" with the cheif musician, the other notes I don't eorry about. I'm not playing Carnegie Hall....

If the band is good, the musicians are reasonably in tune, The average listener in a pub will get the ambience of it, that is if there's not too much talking, glass braking or the bartender has remebered to turn down the t.v..
