Lesson 2-1-19 - High G Sharp
High G sharp is one of the nine half-holed notes in the standard 25 notes for a Key of D Whistle, and one of the five high half-holed notes.
It's made by covering the top two holes completely, then half-covering the third hole, leaving the last three hole uncovered, and blowing quite hard into the mouthpiece
I find that squashing the left ring finger up against the middle finger and pressing down hard on the edge of the hole gives the most control while playing this note.
Like its Low counterpart, it's not the hardest half-holed note to play, and is certainly a useful one to know.
As with all the half-holed notes, I'd recommend learning the full-holed notes first before trying them. There are fantastic whistle players out there who cannot play these notes with any degree of proficiency, and they still manage to play fine music.
