Here is a little video clip from last weeks class with some of my whistle students practicing the slipjig, Boys of Ballysodare. However, because of interruptions in the room (including people rudely talking while the clip was being filmed and somebody else trying to play something ) it got off to a murky start.
We are still working on this tune. But, next class we will begin the next slipjig and also touch on a march for the upcoming St.Patrick's Day Parade in Danbury.
By the way, I don't know why the clip goes directly to the next one on utube. This guy playing the accordian doesn't have the tune right at all. So, if by chance you happen to be in here and see/hear the guy.....PLEASE DON'T COPY the way he's playing it. Not only does he not play the right notes, it's a lousy version of it. This is a lovely tune and it should be respected as such.
