Key of A
A recent post on another thread, the one about opening tunes, referenced the thought that tune in "A" are somehow not "flute friendly". There have been other like comments over my years here. Am I the only person who just doesn’t get it? Really, "A" tunes just seen brighter. Half -holing is easy, so is alternate fingering. I am certainly not a world class flute player, heck maybe not even the best on my block, and I don’t find it all that hard on my un-keyed flute and not even something to think about on my keyed one. The G# is the only "problem" note and that only comes a couple of times in many tunes, sometimes not at all. Personally I find tunes that lean on the B flat key more difficult, i.e. F, B Flat and E Flat on the traditional D flute. With enough practice even those keys should doable (I hope). Your thoughts?
