Thread Name: Whistle playing for the handicaped folks
Subject: RE: Whistle playing for the handicaped folks
Sounds like a good idea, Larry. I have never tried a tabor pipe but I guess your system would work better than one of those in that it has the full range of a whistle and I'm not sure if the tabor pipe does.

The hobgoblin description for one if anyone is unfamiliar with the instrument is "The Tabor Pipe is a 3 Hole whistle which can produce more than a full octave played with one hand. Fairly obviously this is to facilitate the playing of a tabor drum with the other hand."

I suppose the pipe would also be good for anyone with only one hand and a complete lack of use on the other side.

Ditto to the above btw. Anyone enabling the enjoyment of playing music for those otherwise denied this great pastime is certainly making the world a better place.

Unless teaching them bodhran... Only kidding, honest, no... don't beat me (pun intended)
