In an attempt to find a niche in Civil War re-enacting, I purchased this plastic fife and exercise book from Ed Boyle. Getting the embrasure has been…unspeakably difficult, but I am slowly coming along. Hopefully I’ll get it before my hair grows out and I can no longer do a good soldier impression!

Fife progress continues! Managed to eek out a version of Yankee Doodle today!

EDIT: Turns out I’m holding the fife completely wrong. COMPLETELY wrong. Whoops.

Apparently it’s a statistical miracle that I managed to play something this well this wrong.
