Arpeggio

 

Arpeggio (Ar-PED-ji-oe) An arpeggio is made from a broken chord in which the individual notes are sounded one after the other (which the whistle can do) instead of simultaneously (which the whistle can’t do very well).

“Arpeggio” also refers to one of the awful things you can have done to your hash browns at Waffle House, I think. And wasn’t Barry Goldwater’s running mate Stan Arpeggio?

  1. Hi, I received your fingerings for the 3rd octave and those for high E, F, F#, and G are great. But the high A is impossible, despite all my efforts. And also high B, C#, and D4. I would like to be able to play Stars and Stripes and I also need high Ab, and Bb. Any other suggestions or hints? I’m the one with the antique piccolo with the 6 holes and 6 keys. Thanks, Patty

  2. Love the site. Barry Goldwater’s running mate was Bill Miller, who’s daughter now has a show on Current TV (complete turnabout from her old man).
