30 One-Hour Tin Whistle Tune Lessons + 70 Fast/Slow Tune Videos Bundle

Michael Eskin
4 ratings

All 30 of my One-Hour Tin Whistle tune lessons + 70 of my original Tradlessons Fast/Slow tune videos in one discounted bundle!

These lessons are for the advancing intermediate player who already can play a few tunes on the tin whistle and wants to expand their repertoire of common traditional Irish sessions tunes as well as learn about ideas for ornamentation and variation.

In each one-hour tune lesson, I first play the tune up to speed, then slowly.

I then teach the tune phrase by phrase at a relaxed tempo, repeating each phrase multiple times, then combine phrases, then play entire parts, and finally the entire tune multiple times.

After teaching the tune, I then talk about possibilities for the use of ornamentation for the tune as I would play it in a session.

While the lessons refer to the notation (included as a PDF with each lesson), the lessons can either be done with use of the notation or completely by ear.

Please read my note below about the fastest way to download all the lessons and videos at one time!

Note: As of February 13th, 2022, if you purchase this bundle, the Gumroad option at checkout to download the whole set of files as one huge .zip file does not work because of an issue acknowledged by Gumroad support with their download service.

In addition, if you use the "Save to Dropbox" option, I have received reports of some issues there as well, but also reports of success. It just may take some time to perform the operation because of the large size of the files, or you might have to try multiple times. Both of these have been reported to Gumroad and hopefully they will fix them soon.

The fastest way to download all the lessons and videos:

In this bundle, I now have available zipped archives of all the lesson audio, video, and notations to simplify batch download. The individual files are still available if you prefer to get them one-at-a-time.

If you want to download all the videos, audio files, and notation all-at-once instead of one-at-a-time, all you need to do is just download the following seven .zip files individually, and then unzip them on your system:
