What is the meaning of . in the notations.
I understand ‘ but . don’t understand full stop
Can someone help
I use full stop or comma before a letter to denote Lower Octave. Thanks.
my capacity of air blow is very low how to improve
Before i answer your query, i need the following information:
1. How old are you?
2. Since when are you playing flute?
3. Which type of flute do you use?
With all respect,
This is Anubhav. I dont have much knowledge about music. I have purchased a bamboo flute from local vendor. He gave it to me saying for beginner. It’s written there FF on flute. It has a blowing hole and six music holes. Seventh hole is not there.
It will be nice if you can help me identify the first note of my flute,i.e., SA, present on which music hole.
Thanks for your query.
Closing only the top 3 holes with your fingers and blowing gently into the blowing hole produces SA on Bansuri.
what is lower higher and medium octave please explain
We talk in Middle octave
We shout in Higher octave
We murmur in Lower octave
While playing flute when we normally blow, we play in middle octave.
When we play with more force, we play high octave.
When we play with soft air pressure, we play low octave
Wow ,awesome explanation…. thanks
Its good site for beginners .
i have query S TO M (SRGM) & P TO S (PDNS) FLOW is easy n quick. But how to jump M to P or P to M?? is there any trick??its difficult to jump one to another in continuous streaming.
