Subject: Chord Req: HELP: need fingering chart for F whistle
From: GUEST,angel879sk8

Hi, I would really appreciate it if someone could give me a thorough fingering chart for an F whistle. I can play notes from low F up..but I can't find any information on how to play anything lower than F. Do I need to get a D whistle, or can I learn to play any note on an F whistle?

Thanks,
angel879sk8

An F whistle will give you two full octaves plus at least one note in the third octave . A Generation Soprano (?) F is short enough to get your little finger to half cover the bottom of the tube to give an E below the Low F note , but you would need a VERY long finger to do it on any thing bigger than a C whistle .

I suspect we are being trolled. Nobody could really be that thick.

On an F instrument, the lowest note will be an F, and when you go up the scale, you will be playing the F major scale. There's no way to get down to D on it.

Is the maker's name on it? See if the maker has a web site with fingering charts. Sometimes they do.

I believe you would find a D whistle much handier for playing Celtic tunes and for joining sessions.
