Tin whistle Tabs

We have some great musicians play for Fleurs, but if like me – you like to have a bit of a go at the whistle, and have neither the time or inclination to read music (hard enough learning the dances!), you might want to give my tabs a go – just find the tunes on Youtube to get the idea, and play along, these are the basic melodies, a reasonable start hopefully.
Do let me know if you have any tabs for folk tunes yourselves, they can be pretty hard to find. Jane
