Thread Name: getting started with tin whistle
Subject: getting started with tin whistle
I really want to a definitive list of about 4 or 5 easy standard session tunes. Trundling through hundreds of threads about sessions and whistles is getting me no where.

Somebody tell me which 4 or 5 to start with. I don't read music or dots. But I pick up by listening very quickly, so links to any beginner lessons would be greatly appreciated.

While I am at it, I have an ethnicwind low G whistle that seems to condense my breath into a puddle of water as soon as I start playing it. This makes it squeak, Any ideas why this is happening and how to make it stop? I try mopping up with one of those whistle cleaners but it gets between layers in the mouthpiece and I have to wait for it to dry naturally before playing again.
