Today I bought myself a Fife. The group I'm a part of does two time periods, 15th Century and 19th century. I can play the Tin Whistle relatively well (self-taught), but there's two other people in the group that play it. I figured that I'd give myself a bit of a challenge and learn how to play the Fife.

I've been practicing on my housemate's (she never uses it and is letting me have a play on it for a while) and I can get sound out of it. Getting sound out of it is apparently half the battle, from what I've heard.

I knew they were shrill and loud, but I wasn't expecting it to be quite that shrill! (I suppose... I've heard stories of being able to hear them 3 miles away over artillery fire, so I shouldn't be too surprised).

Not much else to report on this end at the moment..

...except this! They're brining out a new Thundercats cartoon. The trailer's been released for it. It looks... interesting.



Formation of the TCats?? That's what it looks like to me at any rate.
