Thread Name: Pipe Chanter and whistle ?
Subject: RE: Pipe Chanter and whistle ?
The whistle has a different amount of holes than the chanter and therefore different fingerings. I concur with the reccomendation of the practice chanter. One can be obtained which is with or without a small battery operated bellows to do the blowing for you. One session with a practice chanter was all I needed to convince me that the whistle is for me & the pipes I leave to the more adept.
