Purchase complete: Native American Flute in the key of G

Red Tail Hawk - G - Spanish Cedar

Well… I finally got around to ordering my Native American Flute, after a bit of research I settled on getting a flute in the key of G.

I was no older than eight when I started playing the piano. I still play. The Native American flute, is an instrument that I’ve always wanted to learn and recently I decided I would teach myself.

My 10 yo daughter (who also plays the piano) has promised me that she will do duets with me once I get the basics down. I did tell her she’ll have to take it easy on me until I’ve mastered the flute. Do you ever really master an instrument? It seems to me that with the piano I’m always learning something even though I’ve been playing for over 35 years.

There are a few songs that are on my must be able to play on the flute list. I’ve listed them below. I already play them on the piano and so does my daughter.

Until recently, I did not know the name of the song House of the Rising Sun but I was able to play it by ear. I read music and do play a lot of piano music by ear. I even create my own songs. I look forward to doing the same, eventually, with the flute.

Of course… I’m already planning on creating a beaded flute case for my new musical instrument.

Amazing Grace: Mark Akixa – Native American flute

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel – Native American flute

House of the Rising Sun – Native American flute

Nearer my God to Thee – Mattias Valletto

Reminds me of this poem they teach in schools here – the theme’s on how modernisation destroys the quality of life, urbanisation versus the beauty of the simplicity in ethnic rural life.

Are You Still Playing Your Flute? by Zurinah Hassan

Are you still playing your flute?
When there is hardly time for our love
I am feeling guilty
To be longing for your song
The melody concealed in the slim hollow of the bamboo
Uncovered by the breath of an artist
Composed by his fingers
Blown by the wind
To the depth of my heart.

Are you still playing your flute?
In the village so quiet and deserted
Amidst the sick rice fields
While here it has become a luxury
To spend time watching the rain
Gazing at the evening rays
Collecting dew drops
Or enjoying the fragrance of flowers.

Are you still playing your flute?
The more it disturbs my conscience
to be thinking of you
in the hazard of you
my younger brothers unemployed and desperate
my people disunited by politics
my friend slaughtered mercilessly
this world is too old and bleeding.

Neat! I was never able to get into playing a musical instrument. I really tried…I do have a guitar that I won…just saw they value went up to $2,100 recently, too! 🙂 I have my Ukelele and I tinker with it but that’s as far as I get. I did take Guitar classes in college but didn’t do much. My husband is VERY musical/instrumental. He was a “state” chair in HS for various Saxophones. He’s played MANY string instruments. He still plays Guitar and can play Mandolin and Bass, too 🙂

When I was little my Grandmother tried to help me with the Organ – I can only play one hand and 2 songs! LOL

I totally look up to anyone who can do well at musical instruments!
