D Minor

FWIW, this tune is actually in the relative minor, D minor.

So, played on an ‘F’ whistle:

Re: Tana

Does anyone know who wrote this tune?

Re: Tana

Christian Lemaitre, I believe.

Tana, X:7

In that same YT clip, Kevin O’Connor also plays the tune an octave up, with some slight deviations from the lower octave version. This upper setting will make more sense for fluters and whistlers (those looking to play it in G/Em anyway).
