\r\n\r\nCD plus 24-page music book\r\n \r\n \r\n \r\n\r\nHere's a lovely traditonal instrument the whole family \r\ncan enjoy. The pennywhistle (also known as the Irish tin \r\nwhistle) can be used to play haunting slow airs or the \r\nmost complex up-tempo jigs, reels, hornpipes and other \r\ndance tunes. While it can be simple enough for a child \r\nto play, it's also worthy of a lifetime of musical study. \r\n\r\nCathal McConnell, known world-wide for his work with the \r\npopular Celtic band Boys of the Lough, has long been \r\nconsidered one of the world's virtuoso Irish whistle \r\nplayers. He is also a kind and patient teacher, and he \r\nmakes learning easy as he brings the beauty of the Irish \r\nrepertoire to you in this unique play-along CD course.\r\n\r\nYou'll learn the basic scales and the proper way to hold \r\nand blow the whistle, to get you off to the right start. \r\nCathal shows you how to play in a variety of keys \r\n(D, G, E and A Major; E, A, and B minor), adding \r\nimportant techniques such as slurring, trills and\r\nrolls as you go along, to give your playing a truly \r\ntraditional "feel." \r\n\r\nBy the time you finish working through this interactive \r\nlesson you'll have a dozen top Irish session pieces \r\nunder your belt, plus all the tools necessary for \r\nbuilding a more advanced repertoire of tunes and \r\ntechniques. \r\n\r\nMaster a dozen Irish airs and session pieces: \r\n"It's Not Yet Day" ("Neil Shay Na Law"), \r\n"O'Donnell Ab�," "S� Beag S� M�r," "The South Wind," \r\n"The King Of The Faeries," "Brian Bohru's March," \r\n"The Lakes Of Ponchartrain," "The Little Beggarman," \r\n"The Foggy Dew," "The Kesh Jig," "The Temperance Reel," \r\n"Give Me Your Hand." \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n
