How to Make a Native American Flute : How to Make a Scale for Native American Flute


This flute is a little bit lower in F-sharp
and it has six holes as you can see and the scale is just the same. So even though there’s
a sixth hole there I left it closed the whole time that I played the scale and I just lifted
all the other fingers in secession as I did with the five hole flute. So you may ask why
is there a sixth hole if you’re not playing the scale with that hole? The answer is that
there’s an in between note, a chromatic note that you can get easier with a hole there. So that if you want more flexibility in the
scale, that sixth hole is nice. It’s not even so necessary because you can get the same
note depending on your particular flute you can get the same note in other ways too. So
with this five hole flute I just cover these holes and sometimes it’s these two, sometimes
it’s these two, it depends. You can get all of the notes the same way it’s just easier
with the sixth hole flute.

  1. I am thinking about getting a Native American flute, and the first flute you play, the red one, is tuned to the key that I find most pleasing. Could you tell me what key that flute is tuned to?
    Thank you.
