McAlpines Fusiliers' sheet music and tin whistle notes
McAlpine's Fusiliers Tin / PenntWhistle Sheet Music Notes. Recorded by The Dubliners and written by Irish singer / songwriter Dominic Behan. This version by The Ronnie Drew Group who later became The Dubliners. Ciaran Burke on tin whistle, Bobby Lynch on guitar along with Ronnie, Barney McKenna on banjo and John Sheehan on the other whistle. There's an easy to follow video showing how to play the tune on the piano keyboard using basic letter notes. The song lyrics and chords of McAlpine's Fusiliers which only uses a couple of the basic chords is also include and suitable for beginners. This is one of those well known Irish songs that was never really a hit or recorded by anybody except the Dubliners, you could say they made it their own. But, it did get recorded by Irish ballad group The Whistlin' Donkeys in 2019 who done a great job on the song.
The notes below are the one's I'm playing in the video. They are only slightly different than the sheet music and are in the same key. It's up to yourself how you want to play it.
