Flute Fingering Chart
think your web sight is great. Major Kudos on content and design.
noticed that there were questions about the vareity of flutes that are 6 Hole
flutes, and keyed in D. I say keyed in D, because the fingerings are very
similar to a flute, but with an F# where the F on a regular flute is; and all
the way up the flute opening a whole at a time plays beautifully and naturally
a D scale. However, the actual pitches vary as to the size of the instrument.
When I play the lowest note D on my bamboo flute, it produces the G a fourth
have a beautiful flute made of a single piece of bamboo (by an artist to be sure)
that is nearly perfectly in tune with itself and A440. Just a single piece
of bamboo, varnished, with 7 holes burned in it. (6 plus blowhole).
And what a beautiful tone it produces. A work of art. Everyone is
always amazed when I play it.
this sort of flute usually has six holes in it, two sets of three, with the middle
finger of the right hand hole being a little bigger than the rest. I've
seen them made of many different materials, glass, ceramic, bamboo, wood.
fingerings are almost identical to a Fife. As a matter of fact, the Fife
is built in the same manner, must smaller, and of wood, I think.
can give you the fingerings that I have so far. Actually, I came to your
web sight in order to try to expand the range of mine, but found that this particular
type of flute wasn't covered properly. Everything on the pennywhistle was
done with half holes, which isn't the best, IMHO.
what I have so far. I'll start from the fundamental note of the instrument
and go up:
O=Open, h=Half Hole
E XXX XXO
next octave is just the first overtone of the lower. In otherwords, the fingering
is the same.
hope this is of some help. If you know where I can locate more and/or better
fingerings I'd love to hear it.
I missed one. Sorry. The C natural above the staff.
C, and C# just above the staff are fingered like this:
C hOO OOO
C# OOO OOO
Fingerings for Flute
Flute Multiphonics Fingerings
play C (third space) and D(first one above the staff):
left hand: thumb,
middle finger, and ring finger
right hand: pinkie finger
play D (fourth line) and F (fifth line):
left hand: index, middle, ring,
right hand: index, middle on first trill key, ring on second trill
a lot of multiphonics can be played by fingering higher notes and using less air.
Try playing high the first F above the staff for example. I don't have my flute
out now, but ill get back to you when I learn new ones.
got my fingerings from the Robert Dick webpage
