Many thanks, dorfmouse - there is a hive of fascinating information there and I will revisit it.

 

Good to hear about your wooden flute! Do let me know when it reaches you. I think you are very brave learning to play in traditional Irish style. (I also think you must have bigger hands than my tiny mitts as I could never manage the finger spacing!)

 

I'm so glad I took the plunge, and hope you are as delighted with your new flute as I am with mine.

 

Happy flauting! :flute:

I have quite small hands and even tin whistle holes need practice to cover properly! This flutemaker asks you for a photo of your hands on a ruler so he can place the holes as comfortably as possible for the individual. I am hoping!

The flute went on a bit of a mystery tour due to a minor error in the address and was sent back to her maker! She's on her way again and hopefully won't have a sulky fit on arrival!
