I wonder if there are any flute players out there that might be able to help me please?
I’m new to playing the flute (only since Jan this year, but have played tin whistle before that). Recently, I’m getting a strange sound (sometimes) when playing low A or B notes…almost like a gurggling sound!! (as opposed to a consistant clear sound). It’s as if the air blowing through was vibrating (another desctiption I can think of is if you are driving, and you open one car window and the air in the car seems to vibrate). Apologies if this sounds crazy!
It’s only happened recently, and being the summer, I’m not in contact with flute teachers or classes, so I have no one to ask locally.
Anyway - just wondering if anyone had heard of this happening, and what might be the cause (apart from me being crap I guess!). 🙂
Hope you can help!
