Thread Name: getting started with tin whistle
Subject: RE: getting started with tin whistle
Some basic exercises:

Try the octave jumps - with tonguing at first. Then go for the jumps from any note to any other. This works your breath control and build that skill rapidly.

Then try just the scales (there quite a few different scales on the whistle!), then the arpeggios as well - mixing this in with the previous stuff.

Once you can handle the basic techniques such as these, you will find that your skill has improved massively.
