Lynn with flute

Here is Lynn playing a flute that i made from a couple of pieces of poplar wood.  This particular flute was styled after the Native American courting flute.  It is unique in that it has two air chambers separated by a wall, with air passage from one to the other via a small rectangular air channel.  The actual musical length of the flute is determined not by the over all length but by the placement of those elongated slots at the end.  Lynn is learning to play various flute type instruments.  He has a recorder, some quenas a penny whistle and a flute similar to this one.   This particular instrument has since been given to another friend, who expressed a desire to have one, and to play.
