A great guide to traditional Irish repertoire and technique, by Cathal McConnell, Irish Whistle virtuoso of the popular Celtic band Boys of the Lough. You'll learn the basic scales and proper position and blowing, and then Cathal will take you through additional techniques - playing in a variety of keys, slurs, trills, and rolls. When you finish this interactive course, you'll have a dozen top Irish tunes under your belt and all the tools needed to beuild a more advanced repertoire of tunes and techniques. Includes a demonstration CD with guitar accompaniment in one stereo channel and the whistle in the other, so you can adjust your balance to hear only the whistle, only the accompaniment, or both, as you prefer.
