A musical interlude -Or maybe your ears will bleed!

I have been playing around with the penny whistle for a few years. It has been very "off and on" and that more OFF than On.
However, I got involved with some folks that are really good musicians and my desire to really play has increased. So I have been practicing on this:




















Actually this is a "Key of C" model and mine is a "D" but they look alike.
So I decided to  play (or is it massacre?) a tune for you.   I hope this works.  oooh...it does, you have to click the little play arrow on the player though.




Some folks have mentioned that they can't play the player so -Here is a direct link to the file

Good job, Gene! I enjoyed hearing the penny whistle on my trip to Ireland some years back...and this brought back happy memories to me.

Good Job Gene, it has such a lilting Irish sound and give yourself some credit as you did an excellent job
