Anyway. In my musical mode, I've just started to learn the tin whistle. It's supposed to be a simple instrument to learn but at the moment I'm having trouble changing my fingering from C to high D but hopefully it will come with practice. If anyone fancies taking up an instrument, I can recommend the tin whistle, it's great fun and the sound can be so pure and haunting when it's played properly. They are cheap, have no parts that wear out and there are lot's of excellent tutorials on YouTube to get you going.
Two new words I've recently learnt. Fipple = the whistle bit on a flute or tin whistle. Chiff = The metalic chiff sound that a flute makes at the beginning of a note being sounded. The chiff is the measure of how good a flute is. e.g. A good flute has a good chiff. (I think).
