I'm started to play the low whistle half and a year ago. Let it down sometimes, but I'm trying now to regain it. So here is a draft & raw test on the Kesh Jig. (inspired by Tom Hanway music sheet). The Low Whistle D is a Kerry Pro The banjo is a Beuzon.

Pretty cool. The Low D is not easy to play. I play the tin whistle in D'' and getting the sharps etc is tough enough on that small tube. You must be a marathoner (or agility coach) to play that whole tune completely without fainting.

How did the you decide which part you are going to play? What had the beat? Just a foot tap?

I recorded first the banjo 'cause I'm better at it, and it plays the foundation. rhythm & tone. Then the low whistle. First time I grip the whistle and blow : i thought : I can't be possible. But it is : practice practice practice. When I took the irish flute I still thought: I can't be possible, I need to bbbrrreeeaaattthh.. someday maybe. bye & thanks.
