(learning aids for the Walking Staff   Flute)

Now that you have made your Walking Staff   Flute you may want to learn a few simple tunes on it and practice the fingering. The range of the instrument is only one octave plus the first two notes in the second octave so a lot of "octave hoping" occurs when playing an instrument with this restriction.   Unlike most NA (Native American style) flutes this one is tuned to the standard 12 note scale, the very same that is used for the Quena, and the Penny whistle instead of the pentonic scale which is sometimes used for this type of flute.
