Lesson 4: Tin Whistle High Hand Taps
You will see in the diagrams below that the green circled hole is the hole that you will be striking. Your fingers should be relaxed and should bounce on and off the tin whistle. In the videos below you will see a strike perfromed very slowly and then up to speed.
