Hello. This site contains recordings I have made as a source of tunes for people who play the flute, or other instruments for that matter. They are just versions of tunes as I remember them. My memory isn’t the best so some of the versions and the titles might be a bit astray but hopefully they’ll be of some use. I usually play the tunes once through slowly to make them easier to learn, then I have a bit of a run at them to give another view of them. I hope this approach is OK. If anyone has any comments, or tune suggestions, please get in touch (email@example.com).
At this stage tune suggestions are particularly welcome as my "isn't the best" memory has started to resist my attempts to plunder it for any more material. Thanks,
(The tunes are split over a number of pages to stop the pages being too slow to load. To go to the next page, please click on Previous Entries at the bottom of the page, otherwise use the index on the left of the screen to navigate to a specific tune).
These tunes are now available via iTunes so you don't even have to go through the displeasing process of accessing this site directly to hear them. Hearing the tunes may be hardship enough in itself. I don't really know what the iTunes caper means but a search for "Irish Flute Tunes" will point to where this stuff lives in iTunesville. The URL via which to subscribe is http://irishflute.podbean.com/feed . If that all made no sense to you then welcome to my world.
Slowing Down Tunes
Just in case the tunes on this site aren’t dull enough, you can slow them down using recent versions of Windows Media Player (I’m sure there are plenty of other ways of doing this too).
In Windows Media player click Now Playing at the top of the screen then pick Enhancements and then Play Speed Settings. There is a nice range of speeds displayed but I can only get the half speed one to work. That’s probably enough to be getting on with in any case.
