Subject: Whistle playing for the handicaped folks
Hey Folks!
Had an interesting thing happen the other day, that may prove valuble to any of you out there with one hand or know someone with one hand who wants to play an instrument. A friend of mine wanted to learn the whistle, but he only has one hand that is functional. I came up with a style of playing the whistle which uses four fingers of the good hand and the wrist of the other. SO, any of you out there who know of anyone who this would be useful for, feel free to drop me an email and I will more fully describe the system. It works like a dream. In brief, one rolls the wrist back and forth to get the lowest two notes, and bob's yer uncle, Jango Rienheart on the whistle.
Cheers
Larry
