Nicely done, and with quills.  Great tune, too.

Howdy CubWyse,

I really enjoyed your quill playing.  Where did you get them from and are they tuned in any special way?

Thanks!

Welcome to Weenie Campbell, Mark D.

If you look below this post, or the last one on the page, you should see a list of one tag: "Henry Thomas". Click this link and look for the topic named Quills Options. You should find lots of good info there. You can also access the Quills tag at the bottom of any page in that topic for even more info on quills.

Possibly someone with the capability could add a quills tag to this topic?

hey thanks,  these pipes were made by a peruvian maker named Ramos.  it originally came as a 10 note pipe  but i took the highest note off because it was really shrill.  henry   thomas played a similar 8 note set but didnt have the lowest note i have on these pipes.  I like that extra low note for paying oldtime fiddle music,  here are a fe more Henry Thomas songs ive worked up.

Well done CubWyse. I'll bet that is every bit as hard to do as it looks!

hey thanks Eric and Prof!  it was a real challenge first learning,  just to  produce a clear unwavering note. and to find a rack to hold em just right. if the pipe isnt flat against my lip, like at an angle, the note will be sharp or flat depening on how its angled.  now my biggest challenge is learning harmonica and when i switch between the harmonica to quills  i will instinctually try to draw in notes. takes a few minutes to shake off
