Pretty Saro - penny whistle


musician/member name: Strumelia
Duration: 00:02:01
description:
I'm practicing a tune from the American Appalachian ballad called Pretty Saro. I've been learning to play penny whistle..tin whistle..for two months now. As a beginner I have a long way to improve...but it's proving to be such an enjoyable journey!
I'm playing a Jerry Freeman tweaked Blackbird 'D' whistle.

Cynthia...even mid-range good quality pennywhistles are way cheaper than say lyres, ukes, or autoharps etc.   Just sayin'...  devil

Lisa you are doing great with that, and what a nice penny whistle. It sounds really really nice. No, no, no, not buying another instrument...I want one too though. And what a pretty setting with your beautiful orchid in the background.

Thank you all for your nice comments.  inlove


Thanks to Jeffrey for putting the thought in my head to make a new video. smile


Sam, Iris' porch version in that movie is actually my Saro 'gold standard'- it's spine tingling , isn't it?    So wow, thank you!  


I've put in many hours this past two months on the whistle, and I'm pleased with the slow steady progress I'm making.  When i started it, I could barely play Hot Cross Buns..and had little idea what i was doing.  As opposed to a couple of more difficult-to-play kinds of instruments I've struggled with over the years, the whistle seems to return immediate results --when I put the time and effort into it.  That's real inspiration to keep at it!

If sitting alone with eyes closed it is LITERALLY spine tingling.

Lovely, Strumelia!  And--gracious!-- with all those embellishments, you really don't sound like a beginner!

Strumelia, your rendition is every bit as haunting as Iris DeMent's singing it in Songcatcher. You've learned so well in such a short time.

Sounds Like you're doing good! I always wanted to learn to play one of those.

Nice.  Not the easiest instrument to play.

Jeffrey, I too have a couple of instruments around the house that I have never managed to figure out very well.  shhh

Thank you, friends!
