The Instant Tin Whistle series is designed to nurture the initial surge of enthusiasm you may experience when first playing the instrument, and has been carefully designed to substantially increase your chances of success. Pick the book - Folk, Popular, Irish or Scottish - in which you know the most tunes. Each book features 26 well-known melodies with every single note shown by a special, easy-to-learn whistle tablature as well as conventional notation. The lessons are realistically and steadily graded so as not to overwhelm the student. Difficult traditional dances tunes, music particularly suited to the tin whistle, are introduced only on the last few pages to give a taste of things to come. Perfect for individuals, groups, or schools wanting to incorporate traditional music into their curriculum. These tunes are suitable for any melody instrument, but the D tinwhistle is preferred. Lyrics, guitar chords, illustrations, rudiments of music (using the British naming system) and chord charts are also included. A CD is also available to assist in learning.

In late August 1969 I finished work for the summer holidays. At 7.30 I put on my favourite radio programme, Folk On Friday and heard the presenter, Jim Lloyd, say "Tomorrow is the start of Whitby Folk Festival". "Whitby Folk Festival" I said to myself, "I think I'll have some of that. Why not? I'm on holiday with no plans." As soon as the programme ended I packed my rucksack complete with tent on the bottom and early next morning caught the bus to Leeds, another to Malton and finally one to Whitby. I swiftly marched up the Abbey steps, pitched my tent on the cliff top camp site and walked back into town. My first task was to visit the Chinese restaurant. Whilst waiting for my meal the lady on the table behind was just leaving and I overheard her say to her husband "Don't forget your melodeon." "Melodeon" I said to myself, "What in the world is a melodeon?"
