I imagine it would be nice for playing many Dm tunes also.


Do you think so?

First, are you thinking of D-dorian or D-minor?

D-Dorian really benefits from the C bell-note. F-natural or D-minor also make use of C.

Three options:

(1) C-flute could be a good choice... which is what a whistle player would reach for.
(2) F-flute, you would be typically be playing a G scale fingering (A-dorian or E-minor), which is fine.
(3) D-flute with C-foot. To play in D-dorian, F-major or D-minor on a D-flute, you need a C-foot and some practice with the F-nat and Bb keys.

I keep coming across really beautiful tunes in D-minor, D-dorian and F.

I don't think anyone has yet said because of the size & tone.

(I would also say, because it's lighter - but mine is actually heavier than my 'D's). :wink:

Ah yes sry.. I do not have an F flute, but I suppose if I did I would play tunes in F and Bb on it.. As I do with my F whistle..
An F flute would be pretty nice.
