"The Art of the Native American Flute"

This book is a summation of R. Carlos Nakai's years as an educator, performer and student of the Native American flute. Part One includes discussions on tunings, fingerings, performance technique, tablature, style, history, standard notation, traditional ornaments plus a section on the care and maintenance of the flute. Part Two includes sixteen transcriptions of Nakai's songs plus two of DeMars' compositions. Part Three is an analysis of Nakai's role in Native American culture as a recording artist and performed by the eminent ethnomusicologist David P. McAllester. More than a performance guide, this book is an important source on the Native American flute and a concise review of the career and artistry of one of the most important ethnic artists in America. 132 pages.

I just want to say want a great experience it has been ordering through the Oregon Flute Store. My Brent Haines Oregon Spirit flute arrived nice and safe and I had so much fun playing it while I was in the US. I was fortunate to be able to play out in the woods under the full moon with fireflies around me in a clearing in the woods, and down by a lake while a thunderstorm raged in the distance - it made the flute playing even more special. The flute quiver helped my flute make it back to England in one piece, and great that it fits in the overhead storage bins. Thank you JoAnn for all your help, I hope to keep doing business with you for years to come.
