New tin whistle player here but I play other instruments. My question is, what do whistle players do when they are actually IN d but the notes go below the bottom d? I am playing with a guitarist and a fiddler. So if we''re playing a song that goes d c d - do I use the higher c, or another note in the chord - like e? What's usual? Thanks.

It is quite common to do either. For just one note, I would probably just play a different chord note, for more than that I would likely do the whole passage up an octave. Of course, you could also consider use a lower pitched flute that has the C.
