I want to learn to play a tin whistle, but I don''t know which one to buy a C, D or G whistle... Which one do you recommend for Irish, Scottish and Indian music??

It really doesnt matter. Id recommend #1 D, #2 C. But mainly because everybody learns on a D. The only disadvantage of the G is that it is higher pitched and can sound squakier - the D/C whistles are slightly longer/larger and therefore easier to finger for a beginner (unless youve got tiny hands/fingers). FWIW - any music written in key of G can easily be played on D whistle (only one funny note).
