     Look at the chart as you would be looking down your penny whistle.   Each column of squares represents the holes in the whistle, and the pattern of filled in and open squares represent a note in the song, reading from left to right.   Where the filled in squares appear, that is where you put your finger down and cover that hole.  Where the open squares appear, leave that hole uncovered.  Blue filled in squares represent the second octave notes and you need to blow harder to reach them.  You can hear the tune your self by clicking on the link above and play along with me as you follow the fingering chart.   I am sure you will get the knack of the chart quickly as you go through the notes and fingering patterns.
