Tunes for a Bb Whistle?
I just recently bought my first whistle and it’s a Susato Oriole Bb. I know that the most common to start is a D high whistle, but I’m not a big fan of the high picth of the high whistles. Originally I wanted a low whistle (I’ve recently started classes for alto recorder, never played a soprano recorder before), but they are not available to buy in my country so even the commonly cheaper whistles are quite expensive for me.
I want to play just for fun, I’m not planning to play in groups or do sessions with other people, so I heard the Bb whistles are fine for solo sessions and I really like their sound from videos of people playing it.
My question is, I find sheets for whistles, without notes, just the finger positions, but it never says in what tune they are, so I assume they are in D and I’m not sure if I can play D tunes with an Bb whistle (yes I’m a beginner with music in general so I’m probably saying dumb things here), but are there any tunes that are specific for Bb whistles? If I get any sheet (for a D whistle for instance) and simply do the same fingering in it, will the tune come out right? Do I need to do transposition of tunes made for D whistles to play in Bb whistles?
