Oh yeah, I finally can play the flute! At least the basics. Not only can I get the notes to actually come out now, but I have plenty of the fingerings memorized, and can play them in sequences. By now I can play Loch Lomond and Minuet, checking off two items on my list that I posted in the last post. As for learning the notes.... well, let me prove it to you with pictures! The red dots are where you press down. Plus, I was unable to show the back fingerings - except for C, the thumb is always pressed down.
|D (so far, the only one not using the right pinky!)|
|High F# (left thumb and octave key are pressed on the back)|
|High F (left thumb and octave key are pressed on the back)|
- Find and play third octave notes
- Learn C#, thus completing the bottom two octaves
