First Morning Light – http://ancientechoesllc.com/first-morning-light/
A long time ago, there was a young man who became interested in a beautiful young girl. The young man was always trying to grab the young girl’s attention, but she never seemed to notice his efforts. Whenever she came near him, he would proudly ride his horse around, but still, he failed in attracting her notice.
One day, when all the girls went down to the river to get water, he followed them. There, he dove off the rocks and swam across the river to show her that he was skilled, but still, she paid him no mind. Feeling rejected, he went into the nearby old growth forest and sat at the base of a dead cedar tree. As he sat there, thinking about the beautiful young girl, a woodpecker came and stood on a hollowed limb that was over the young man’s head. The limb had been hollowed over time from the weather.
The woodpecker started to peck holes, tapping along the length of this wood. As the woodpecker kept pecking, the limb cracked loose and fell right beside the young man. As it fell, the wind blew over the hollow piece of wood and the young man heard musical voices in it. He picked up the fallen branch and discovered that by blowing through the limb and covering the holes, he could make beautiful music to match the feelings he had in his heart.
The young man sat there, beneath the tree, playing haunting sounds through the hollow limb. The young girl could hear this music coming from the forest and it was such a beautiful sound as it captured her heart. She followed the sound of this music into the forest, where she saw the young man sitting at the base of the dead cedar playing the first flute, gifted to him by a Woodpecker. While she listened, she became entranced with his music and fell in love with him. They went off, hand in hand, to live their lives together.
And so was born the Native Flute and the tradition of young men courting the girl of his dreams by creating music from his heart by playing the flute. There is also another legend that says that once you attract a mate, you are to put the flute away and never play it in public again because if you played it again, you might attract a different mate.
There is also the legend that when the Native American flute is played it brings harmony, prosperity, peace, and love for all.
And so we play.

The Irish flute is a very simple system, a transverse flute that plays diatonic (Major) scale as the tone holes are successfully covered and uncovered. Many flutes from the classic era and some of the modern day flutes include metal keys and other tone holes to achieve complete and partial chromatic tonality. Do to this flutes wooden construction, direct keyless fingering, the simple system flute has a distinctly different timbre from the Western concert flute. Most Irish flute players strive for a dark and reedy tone. Even though the flute is commonly played in the key of D, simple system flutes are always available pitched in other keys.
They are often heard in Irish music pitched in E flat, C flat and B. This is a non-transposing instrument, if you cover C, a concert-like pitch is played. This flute has six main holes. All wooden flutes have a cylindrical bore in the head and a conical bore in their body. The bore is commonly largest at the heads end and tapers down to a smaller bore at the foot. This gives the effect of shortening the flute for a given pitch. This is a great flute for any player that takes an interest. Flute music is a beautiful and harmonious thing.

The Native American flute is recognized as the third oldest known musical instrument in the world. The first to be discovered were drums, followed by various rattles, and finally bone whistles. Some bone flutes date back to over 60,000 years. The flute structure has changed over time. Eventually, more holes were added to the flute and the holes were carved larger. Flutes also had many different styles, using 2, 3, 4,5,6,7 or 8 holes.
Tonality and the quality of the sound of the flute are influenced by the different materials used in its creation, whatever resources were available to the Natives in the area. All types of hardwoods and softwoods have been used to fashion Native American flutes at some point in time. In the southern parts of the United States, even river reeds were used. This reed has a natural joint that serves as a barrier and creates a chamber. These flutes are fairly easy to make and may have added to the design of what is typically recognized as the plains style flute, commonly used by flute players today.
Native American flutes and whistles were created and used for various reasons, differing by tribe and purpose. Many tribes played the flute while traveling; most of these songs are still with us today. The tribes of the NW Coast used bone and cedar whistles for different dances and spirit-calling ceremonies. The Hopi had flute societies that performed powerful prayer ceremonies. The Lakota used the flute for courting and love songs. Today, eagle bone whistles are used at many Pow Wows.
