I wasn't very impressed. A hulusi is pretty easy to play and he could have done it with far more fluidity.

I'll take your word that a hulusi is an easy instrument to play.

It sounded OK to me but it wouldn't have been my first instrument of choice to play "The Bucks". The young man will obviously not be as "grounded" in the Irish tradition either. So, all in all, I think it was a fair enough rendition.

I might have been a bit more impressed had he stopped at the end of the first playthrough... :-)

It is still a good version, even if he did not vary ornamentation, Jack how about giving us a better version OF THE BUCKS on the helusi since you say it is easy to play

The simple rule of ornamenting a phrase and next time playing it straight, provides more variety ,it is true, but i thought for someone who has only had a limited time to absorb styles, he did quite well, and he clearly is enjoying himself playing, which is one of the most important elements.

Thanks for sharing, Sandman. It is interesting to see that an instrument that I assumed shares nothing with Western music can play a traditional reel.

It's basically a soft-blowing practice chanter with drones added. Any colour so long as it's black and any key so long as it's B flat. It doesn't overblow so the very top notes are fingered differently from a whistle, but any whistle player could pick it up at once.

I like the ba-wu more.

'It is interesting to see that an instrument that I assumed shares nothing with Western music can play a traditional reel.'

You may want to have a look at this man from Coprk playing the Jkaen:

Bird in the bush

Craig's pipes

Gold Ring

Thanks, Dick. I'm not so deeply immersed in Irish music that I can't enjoy that, and I love the sound of the hulusi anyway. I picked one up in Beijing some years ago, and fooled around with some slower tunes on it, but never put in the time to learn a bona fide reel on it. Now it serves mainly as a conversation-piece sitting on top of the piano .....

It is an 'easy' instrument to play, like the tin whistle or recorder, but like any instrument, it's not easy to sound like the masters.

And thanks, Peter. I've been planning on learning to play the khaen very early on in my next life for a while now .....

Nice clean hulusi playing on a Chinese tune. The descending slides are un-Irish but the strikes could fit in perfectly.

the other two clips were good and peters clip illustrarted the point about being immersed in a style
your clip although intersting as an example of chines music is irrelevant , why do you not just start a new thread
It is not an irish reel, being played on the hulusi

It's a perfectly appropriate clip demonstrating how a hulusi is normally played. Dick, if you don't want people to comment on threads you start then the best thing is not to start them.

No ,Manitas, why not start , a thread on just how a hulusi is normally played ,
it deserves its own thread, since it is nothing to do with playing an irish reel on the hulusi.
