This is a really thorough and excellently prepared guide to the Tin Whistle. It does as it says, it provides all the tools necessary to give you the knowledge to progress your musicality and playing technique on the Tin Whistle.
Ornamentation is covered succinctly and enhanced with 119 exercises. There’s help with dexterity, ergonomics and advice on playing in a relaxed and healthy way.
The author (Grey Larsen) knows his onions (as they say around here) and he provides insight into Traditional Irish Music, with related theory and history.
The CD has 92 tracks of Grey playing all the exercises.
Top this off with lots of photographs, diagrams, illustrations, examples in musical notation, detailed fingering information – and there’s more…..even computer software links to important on line resources.
It’s pretty thorough - it’s your Essential Tin Whistle Toolbox.
