First thing i noticed: progress in hitting the second octave 😉 Good!
second: 0:49 thats long if you plan to record and play without mistakes - brave 😉
third: its in "your style" that catchy way but yes, you still have to work on it, this time Bill is much more catchier than you 😉

and: first time that i hear this tune, i dont know if i like it, i will need time for that

Do you have a soundcloud link or other source, too?
Because not everyone may be able to see youtube vidoes. (chinese members for example cant get acces to youtube)

My Clarke Sweet Tone does not sound as nice to me as my Tony Dixon Trad, I will record again when I get the Dixon Trad back from Warranty Return service.

It's good to play when I play it properly.

Well i didnt like it on the CD played by Bill Ochs as well, its the tune not your playing i have problems to like
BUT i do like it this way, Finnegans Wake sung and with more instruments on Youtube, than maybe a whistle aditional is nice but only on a whistle its hard for me to like it

This is fun! Here is my attempt: http://soundcloud.com/alceria/tim-finnegans-wake-2

I am having some kind of issue with soundcloud - it keeps adding partial parts of my recordings to the end. I recorded this 4 times, and this one only has one rogue note added in after I stopped. I don't get it. Previous versions kind of repeated what I had already played at the end, but the repetition started in the middle of the recording. Weird. What am i doing wrong?

Also, my chair is noisy.

Regarding this particular tune, I think it's very helpful for getting comfortable with those higher notes. The repetition of those high Gs is good practice. I have only been playing about 3 weeks, so I'm not entirely comfortable with the upper ends of the second octave yet.

i dont know what you are doing wrong, i have no experience with soundcloud
but you are doing something right, because i start to like this tune 😉
you play it different, i cant say why but i do like it this way

anyway, do you record online? can`t you record to the computer and upload the file to soundcloud? maybe that solves the problem

i also know the noisy chair thing 😉
i can lean backward with mine and like to do it while playing whistles, in recordings it adds terrible sounds 😉

so you just did play for 3 weeks when you recorded it? thats verry well played than
are you using the bill ochs tutorial as well?
