Tell us something.: I'm a fiddler and, latterly, a fluter. I love the flute. I wish I'd always played it. I love the whistle as well. I'm blessed in having really lovely instruments for all of my musical interests.

I'd like to help, but I don't seem to be able either to download the file or to read it ... :-?

Do you have another format you could post it in?

The tune is "Leaving Friday Harbour" from John McCusker's album Goodnight Ginger.

(Unfortunately the versions written on The Session are not very accurate, but you'll get the idea).

Seconded. Also found as the title track on a 1999 Battlefield Band album.

Thank you guys! It's a nice, cheesy tune, that every grandmother will love and give you 20 bucks for ice cream. It doesn't hurt that it's in one octave - you won't get evicted! All the best!
