hi kenny, some time ago I was looking myself for the music book of "Sunshine on Leith". I found one in the Blackwell online store:
http://bookshop.blackwell.co.uk/jsp/id/ ... 0863596643

The problem is, that they are not able to deliver at the moment, probable delivery date mid of February, at the moment.

btw, if anybody could help me with the tin whistle part in "Cap in Hand", I would be very grateful.

hey thanks for the link christine. stevie did get back to me and told me there was a book of the music and if i couldnt find it the manager might have the sheet music he can get photocopied for me. i'm going to head into glasgow at the weekend and see if i can find the book so i dont need to trouble them straight away for anything.

Hi Christine, maybe I am a wee bit late, but I can tell you how I play the tin whistle part in Cap in hand. Craig plays a D whistle, the most common one. The notes are something like

FFFGAAGFEEEE
FFFGAAGFEEEE FGFED DEFGFEDE DD.

All the F are #(sharp), as it is the D scale.

Maybe you know the fingering for each note, but if not, just ask me. Also the possition of the fingers can be seen pretty well in the video:

Hi Twinkle, thanks a lot. Sometime ago I watched the youtube videos of Cap in hand again and again in slowmotion to find out the finger positions by myself, and Tom helped my by playing it on the piano for me. We came up with this:

FFFGAAGFFE
FFFGAAGFE EEFGFED DEFGFEDE DDD.


It's quite similar to what you have got, so we can't be that wrong :D

How long have you been playing the tin whistle? Did you have lessons? I try to teach it myself with a book and CD for beginners.

Yeh, more or less the same :D

I didn't take lessons... I just learned by myself. I also play the wooden flute (recorder) and it's similar, although different.

Some years ago a friend brought me two tin whistles from Dublin, C and D, and I try to do something... I can read music but I also enjoy playing by ear the tunes I hear or know.

Wish we had had this when we got married up in Stornaway, we asked if the organist could get this for our wedding blessing. He couldnt ,only had traditional music so we had Ave Maria . it was nice but wished i had been more organised.
