In this video I play on a Moeck Rondo soprano in 440. Plus whistles in G and D by Chieftain, and G, Eb, C and Bb by Generation.
The tune I use as an example is a traditional tune called, amongst other things, ‘The Bear Dance’. Link to the tune on The Session:
(you’ll notice that all the versions, mine included are slightly different! I learnt it as a reel but it’s listed here as a polka. And that variety is the beauty of folk music 😉
