It has no fingering charts, or note explanations. It is an excellent book for someone that
is familiar with the whistle, and even has a page of recommended listening (Discography).
You will need to have a Whistle in the key of D to make proper use of this book.
All the tunes are written in keys that are meant to be played on a D whistle. Take a look
