[Edit: I had originally posted this in the Post-Structural Pub Subforum, but it got moved here because it is related to World/Folk Winds]

While in undergraduate school, I learned about making flutes and tried my hand at making a flute based on Native-American-Flute technology (i.e. a fipple).

I harvested some green-to-yellowing bamboo and stashed it on the balcony of my dorm room. Not long after, someone reported to me that they were having an issue with a snake at a nearby building, I informed them that if they killed it I wanted its skin for a flute. After they killed it, we took it behind the dorm and skinned it. I then dried the skin and made a flute out of yellowish bamboo to match the skin.

The fipple is being held on with a rubber band due to lack of initiative.

Yes. The snake is probably just as terrifying as it ever was.

Since the post moved to this forum (from the Post-Structural Pub); it seems that I should probably give actual details regarding the flute.

The flute was made to be a Native American style flute. Therefore, it is a Pentatonic scale and this flute is in E major. It plays nice, but I don't have much occasion to play Native American music, so it was more just for fun and experience.
