Bamboo Flute (Japanese Shakuhachi 1.8) - Key D Minor Pentatonic Scale









Dear all,I successfully crafted a Japanese bamboo flute (Shakuhachi 1.8) which plays Key D in Minor Pentatonic Scale. All tone holes are predefined to play the right notes which comprises the Minor Pentatonic Scale. The base note is D in 4th octave (Key D4). I also attached some of the snap shots of the flute for your kind appreciation. Notice the placement of the tone holes and the size of each of them. It is comprised of 5 tone holes unlike its Major Scale counterpart (6 holes) and with the difference in placements. I hope you enjoy it , and if for any reason, I am contactable at mjrosman@gmail.com or +60193827279.

Bamboo Flute - Key E Arabic Scale






video

Dear all,
I successfully crafted an Arabic bamboo flute which plays Key E in Arabic Scale. Sorry for the "blackened" video. Nevertheless, the audio is quite distinctive. All tone holes are predefined to play the right notes which comprises the Arabic Scale. The base note is E in 4th octave (Key E4). I also attached some of the snap shots of the flute for your kind appreciation. Notice the placement of the tone holes and the size of each of them. It is comprised of 6 tone holes like its Major Scale counterpart with the difference in placements. I hope you enjoy it , and if for some reason, I am contactable at mjrosman@gmail.com or +60193827279.
