The Instant Tin Whistle series is designed to nurture the initial surge of enthusiasm you may experience when first playing the instrument, and has been carefully designed to substantially increase your chances of success. Pick the book - Folk, Popular, Irish or Scottish - in which you know the most tunes. Each book features 26 well-known melodies with every single note shown by a special, easy-to-learn whistle tablature as well as conventional notation. The lessons are realistically and steadily graded so as not to overwhelm the student. Difficult traditional dances tunes, music particularly suited to the tin whistle, are introduced only on the last few pages to give a taste of things to come. Perfect for individuals, groups, or schools wanting to incorporate traditional music into their curriculum. These tunes are suitable for any melody instrument, but the D tinwhistle is preferred. Lyrics, guitar chords, illustrations, rudiments of music (using the British naming system) and chord charts are also included.
