The Wishing Tree

The title track from a great new(ish) album by John Doyle, John McCusker and Michael McGoldrick and composed by John McCusker. As you can see, a few of the notes fall below the range of a D whistle so I’ve had to make a few small alterations to this version when playing it.

The Wishing Tree, X:2

I thought I would include this version in the key of G. It works fine on a D whistle without any need for jumping octaves.
