The tin whistle challenge

As I am trying to improve my tin whistle playing (starting from a very low baseline!), I have decided to set myself a challenge: learn a new tune each week and record the results.

Why am I doing this?
To give me some focus, mainly. Up till now I have been picking out tunes from my head, or making idle squarking noises. As I am playing for fun and relaxation, I have developed a small repertoire of tunes I can play (to varying standards) and now I rarely stray from them.

What are the rules?
Every good challenge has rules 🙂
I will choose a new tune every Monday and post the sheet music here. During the week I will practice the tune and post an audio recording here at the end of the week.

I may not stick rigidly to the rules, as work and other life events may get in the way, but I will do my best.

Wish me luck.
