  1. I’m a penny whistle player (played trumpet for years) who loves to play classical and popular music. I’ve been scouring free music in D, B minor, G, and E minor since most penny whistle tunes are Celtic. Transitioning to recorder should give me more music to enjoy. The fingerings for G# and Bflat are tough. I think the high D# in the last line of the music above has the same finger positions as the E before it.

  2. Is it just me or does the E’ and D# on the last line of notes have the same fingering detailed? I’m confused. Otherwise, love trying this song, it is not easy!
