I have a G tin whistle, can I play all notes and scales on that one?
Asked by:Rocco


A simple question, but one that can be complex to answer. The simple answer is you can play all the notes in the scale of G i.e from G to g and you can play many of the notes in the scale of d. Other than that you need to have a whistle in the other keys if you want to play more than that, but why bother when the key of D will see you through much of what many tin whistle players play?! As well, the whistle is a transposing instrument, so if you find something not in the key of your choice, just transpose the notes to suit your whistles key or get a whistle in that key. Generation whistles are cheap and have a variety of keys.
