Playing by ear ? That should solve everything.

each flute has a different key. Am Em G etc. I need to order one that has the right notes for the song.

Not sure if it helps, but I think the whole song is in C minor...

As soon as I saw "Native American Flute" in the title I knew it had to do with that song haha...

TS, there are various kinds of native american flutes, but I believe the kind you're looking for will be similar to this:


These 6 holed flutes are generally capable of 2 keys, which are a 4th apart. The song is in C minor, so the key you want for your flute is going to be either Eb or Bb. I would go with the Bb, because it's going to give you the 7th below the root, which allows for better phrasing than getting one in Eb will.

ok its kinda funny.

thanks that helps alot. and maybe we could all get along. Ive met the guy at a concert he is the most wise man i have ever met. If anything he taught me to get over hating every stupid soul on this planet and learn to teach than to scorn
