Hi, I have some issue playing the F nat : when you have to half cover the hole. When I try to play faster I often end up with shrilling sound. Which half part of the hole do you cover for the most convenient result? (top half, right half?) Thx

It takes patience and practice. I think the half notes are the pons asinorum of tin whistle playing. I find it easiest to cover the side. Which side depends on the hand - assuming left hand on top then I would cover the top 3 on the left side (i.e. the side the finger naturally covers) and vice versa for the bottom. While it takes some practice this allows you to develop a faster fingering technique in the long term and play better ornamentation. The shrill sound will disappear with practice. Best wishes GB
