Changing the Sound
This is what my 'Blue'
flute looks like. Blue
Star, is the gentleman who made this flute and gave
it to me as a gift. This instrument is like none other
that i play. I have learned to play many instruments in my life and
without exception they all work the same way, regardless of what instrument
it is. The music starts in my head, and then it travels out my fingers,
or breath, or what ever the instrument's requirement for sound production.
But it all starts in my head, where the music is stored. If i do not
know the melody, then i can not play it by myself, it must first be
in my head. Once a tune is in my head,
then i can play it on any instrument. However this flute is different.
With this instrument i can not play a single song that i already know.
I have tried many times and never with any success because the scale
is a little different. What makes this instrument different is that
everything i play comes from some place else, and not my head. I listen
to the music, as i play the flute, and that is all i do. I listen
and let my fingers and breath do what ever they want to do to give
musical body to the throughts in my mind. It is the reverse of the
other instruments, as it plays itself, and it does not play the same
tune twice. Each time i play it, the tune is new and one that i have
not heard before. This is an instrument that does not need to be learned,
you simply pick it up and play it. Just like that.
