    I am English myself, so I just learned the airs I loved, that spoke to me, irrespective of region. Likewise, the English system accommodates playing styles that counteract its inherent smoothness and continuity between notes. The image below shows the proper right hand position for this "Modified Piper's Grip". They would never think you played anything other that traditional or folk songs. This is why slow airs are their own category, with the tin whistle slow airs All-Ireland titles as highly regarded as the tin whistle title.

    Playing a Low Whistle is going to feel very strange and unnatural at first; you'll feel like it's just about impossible when you first pick it up. And some who are astonishing at both. If you have the lyrics send them to me and a link to youtube where I can hear the song. Check out my list of of the all time favorite ballads and folk songs. We firmly believe that just about any teen or adult can play a Low D whistle a possible exception is if you have fingers that are so narrow that they simply can't cover the holes completely. In total there are over 40 handy songs to learn in the whistle sections.

    An accomplished slow air player is a master of their instrument - and of the tradition - as it requires all the technical skill, draiocht and learning as the other. Anglo concertinas typically have either two or three rows of buttons that sound notes, plus an "air button" located near the right thumb that allows the player to fill or empty the bellows without sounding a note. I think learning how to play songs on the whistle is much easier as the melody of the songs will already be in your head from years of listen to ''Dirty Old Town'' for example. Often, whereas one button will sound a given note on bellows compression, an alternative button in a different row will sound the same note on bellows expansion. And it may be necessary to be somewhat familiar with Gaelic song in order to do them justice.
