Have just bought a penny whistle and am having problems getting used to the fingering. Should the tips of my fingers be flat or arched over the holes? Sorry if that is a dumb question.

Put your fingerprints over the holes. Rest fingers flat, sealing the holes with the pad between your fingertip and first joint. It may help to try and keep your fingers straight, with almost no arch. Not getting the all the holes completely covered and blowing too hard will be your largest problems. For the lowest register on the whistle, you practically need to sigh instead of blow, especially for the two lowest holes. Those two are also the hardest to cover well. You play in two octaves, depending on how hard you blow. It can be hard to play in the lower octave without it jumping up an octave. Breath-control is critical for that. Remain relaxed!
