I had a great commission come through that I can finally share: a pair of flasks for Keith and Brendan of the Young Dubliners! Being a fan of this band, I was excited to make these for them.
I have no idea who that is, but those are awesome!
I do know who that is, and those are awesome!
That appears to be false advertising… They do not appear to be young.
You got a little irish in ya? I was just listening to the Mollys.
I lean a little more to the pipes…
LOL! I’m learning those (still in the chanter stage though). I may have to get a Blair Digital pipe so my wife stops giving me that look
(As the t-shirt says, “it’s only 9 notes, how hard can it be” )
I don’t have the lung power, but man, it gets my blood stirring…
That happens to me when I see lady pipers…my mind goes to what a true scotsman wears under his kilt and wanders off wondering what a real scotswoman wears
Seriously, it was the fingering that has been hardest so far - I kept (keep) curling my fingers trying to close off the holes using my fingertips instead of keeping my fingers flat. And I never played anything like a clarinet or something that used fingertip control.
I had the same problem when I first started playing bass guitar…wanted to use my fingertips instead of barring with my fingers.
My Daddy was a jazz musician, and blew a Selmer tenor.
It must be in the blood, because if he had lived - a Sax would be my bone. That sound grabs me. That guy on Saturday Night Live? One of the best there is.
we had a sax player sitting in on our last gig, Seth Kibel. he was amazing. a pro’s pro. and he so reminded me of the guy on SNL at times.
He is good.
Those flasks came out really great!
Very professional! They will really appreciate these for a very long time.
