[attachment=12599:image.jpg]I received a G Prayer Rock Flute from Michael two days ago. It was serendipitous that he had one available when I contacted him. It is beautiful and plays beautifully. If you know Michael's flutes, you know they are consistent, both in appearance and sound. I already love this flute.

About a year ago I sold a MGA Prayer Rock flute in G# during one of my fits of cleaning out. You see, too many flutes make me anxious. I regretted it almost from the day I put it in the mail. I am very grateful that I was able to get this flute. It won't ever be going anywhere without me.

Beautiful flute Chris.
You did the right thing in buying this flute, I hope you keep this one for many decades.

We could never play the Anasazi Sin Saliva, Spanish for Without Saliva.
First you must have moist lips.
Second I may be wrong, but this may be what you are seeing Peter doing.
When I play several different Pueblo or any other rim blown flutes for that matter and I pick one up to play quickly, I use my tongue to gauge the distance of the edge to my lips. It helps adjust the embouchure and flute angle.

Hmmm ... ??? ... "Sin Agua" translates from Spanish to English as "Without Water", so one would think it would play better dry! mellow.gif

Oh how I like this one. That was so cool! And a BIG Happy Birthday, my friend.

My birthday, it would seem, is right after yours, on Jan. 7 when I turned 65.

Ginger

Happy Birthday Ginger "Red Hawk"!
Thank you for you compliment.
This tune is one of the more fun but technical tunes to play, I love it too.
Playing it on different maker's flutes make it even more fun.

My wife asked me if I was going to play Happy Birthday on the Anasazi so she could sing along, I told her I have a special tune for myself.

Very nice rendition. Just recently started the rim blown journey, so this gives me something to aspire to. Happy New Year, and here's to hoping for a better 2017. Stephen.

Thank you Stephen.
Stick with the rim blown, it takes time love and dedication.

2017 is looking better already

Absolutely awesome, Joe! So many tunes from "western" music have some awkward accidental notes went attempted on Native flutes, but every note on that piece was just right! It was a beautiful rendition, and you sure do know your way around a rim blown flute. rolleyes.gif

Happy New Year to you and all of my other pals on this forum.

Keep soaring!

Thank you Keith.
Happy New Year.

Thank you Tootie

I practiced this tune on an MGA key of A first, then I decided I would push my limits with the longer MGA key of G.

Happy New Year

To Northern Lights....Breath and air speed control. Yes from the diaphragm, but as you get better you can accent you music by using your cheeks or jaw. It becomes natural after a while, stay with it.

Nice video Terry.

This tribute song uses a DeRuby backing track and was totally inspired by Stephen D.

Nice photo! Is that clear pvc or acrylic in the middle?

That's a "Clear Rain Maker" PVC Anasazi. It sounds just like the "Black Magic Stick" Anasazi next to it.
Here is a better picture of it.

Beautiful Joe! Always a pleasure to hear you play. I'm still working on my prowess with the Rainmaker and enjoying the flute quite a lot. Wishing you and Barbara a wonderful summertime...
Blessings...
Tom

Thanks Tom,
Good to hear you are still enjoying that Clear Rainmaker, that is one flute I carry in my everyday flute bag.
I just finished a branch Anasazi today 5-20-16 and I am getting used to the feel, sound and range, I may do some fine adjustments before I apply a finish to it. I will debut it at our flute circle next weekend.

Posted a picture of my everyday flute bag.

Hard song to play, especially on rim blown. Nicely done. Got a little more ocean noise than is desirable, but that's the way it goes with simple videos.

Thanks Rick, it's a wonder the cameral picked up the flute with all the wind and surf sounds.

We spent a week at Del Mar campground on Camp Pendleton with some RV friends and family.
My wife Barbara shot this video of me playing the Anasazi one evening by the sea.

QUOTE(Bainn @ May 19 2016, 06:07 PM) *
Greetings, after hearing the sounds of the Anasazi style flute I wanted to learn this flute. With bravado and perhaps a little foolishness, I've purchased a "Rainmaker" from Butch Hall because - 1) The sound clip sounded divine & Butch is a respected maker, 2) If I can master this, no-notch rim flute the modern Anasazi style flutes should be relatively easy (?)

It is tough, all that I can produce is some whistling at the moment ! So if any forum folk have any tips for this style of flute, I would be grateful smile.gif

For example - This whistling noise - Is that near the sweet spot, ie I only have to adjust my lips or position a fraction now to get a note ?


Nice flute, the whistling noise will start to go away as you and the flute learn to know each other. That type of rim will not produce a very loud voice, so blowing softly is the key.
The Anasazi requires dedication, you have to want to learn it from heart. It will reward you with small advances in the beginning, the rewards become bigger with time, the rewards never cease as long as you play.

Hello,

I have a lot of reed cane nearby and I would like to make one of those long anasazi flutes using that type of material. Has anyone tried?
Should I expect a decent sound?

Thank you
Antonio

My Grandfather made flutes from river reed and cane, I remember it was easy to work with. I make the Anasazi from bamboo grown in my Mother in Laws backyard, it is a little tougher to work with but works very well, and the sound is very nice.

Flute Quest was fun even though it rained Thursday and Friday.
We had great talent and vendors.
Paul Ross performed for us with various flutes, Rona YellowRobe and Bruce Witham put on the usual fabulous show, Pamela Mortensen jus blew us away with those huge Didgeridoos and Randy Granger's multi talent just kept us mesmerized.
I played "Ain't No Sunshine" and Gershwin's "Summer Time" on the worlds first clear Anasazi flute. I call it the Rain Maker.

Saturday of the festival was Bruce Witham's birthday and I was asked by Rona YellowRobe to come up and play the Happy Birthday song on my clear Anasazi.

Here a few shots from the festival.
