High A Exercise
High A Exercise 2
You will likely notice that this exercise requires you take more breaths than usually. When you have a lot of high notes in a row like below you will need to take lots of breaths.
Keep going...one more note to learn and then you will know them all and can begin playing tunes again. In case you haven't noticed I usually use the word "Tunes" not "Songs" this is because whenever you play a jig, reel, march, hornpipe, polka.... Irish musicians refer to these as tunes, not songs.... so you should get use to doing the same.
