    My vertical Chinese flute is 2 inches short of the width of a single bed
    Too many images, you will have to give me time to catch up!

    I have had a very interesting day chasing instruments this is what happened
    The case that came with my Chinese vertical flute that is the wits of the single bed almost was defective so I asked them to send me another one but there is a problem my flu is 3 inches too long so they don't actually know what I have ended up with because I think there has been a problem when the flights have been packaged and someone has either put an extended version or a completely different one in the box so they are sending me the flute I should've had that was supposed to have been sent I will get that tomorrow morning so it will be interesting to see whether it actually has the same construction or on the scene headjoint are the same number fingerhold on it but I don't think it's going to eyeball not be charged for this because I've had the wrong one given to me so it was my fault and I said to them what am I going to do with the current one and they said what ever you like with it as it does that mean I will be getting the one I should've got for free and they said yes I said that's nice ☺️
    The native American flute that I ordered the other day they don't have the original one that I ordered any more we have one that has a drone in it as well which is okay because I like those they phoned me at 5:20 this afternoon to tell me that the shop shuts at six and Parcelforce hadn't been in to collect the parcels so they said if it was okay with me could you get the shop to dispatch it tomorrow themselves so I can have it on Monday and I said that wasn't a problem so I could still get it tomorrow but I don't think I'm going to because I haven't had an email to tell me that it's honestly like I did with the replacement Chinese flute
    Correction on its way
    So we are all as confused as each other as the waffly I actually do you have I would like to know but the problem is I can't read any of the writing on it well nobody can because it isn't in English
    So I will get back to you with regards to whether the flute I get tomorrow is a slightly smaller version of the one I have ordered tautly different altogether

    The flute that I was supposed to have arrived this morning and there are some differences between this one and my original
    Number one it's nowhere near as long which is better than having to try and play the flute that is nearly the wits of a single bed that is just ridiculous especially because I'm only 5 foot tall so it looks really stupid
    Number to the finger holes are a lot smaller so it's easier for me to cover them to get all the knots out
    Number three the circumference of the new flute is much narrower than my old one so my hands won't hurt within five minutes of starting to play
    It's an icer flute all range to be perfectly honest
    Correction all round

    My new flute that I have just got has to be consigned to the graveyard of fleets because she's cracking round the head joints and she's making noises like ice being snapped which is really not good noises to hear of anything
    I have called up the music company that I got her from and they are going to send me a replacement on Monday note this will be the replacement of the replacement for the replacement it's getting stupid
    I am going to have to remove her from my bedroom because I cannot handle hearing her literally break
    When I got her into my bedroom she was absolutely freezing and I didn't do anything to her I haven't even played her so I didn't even get to hear her voice sounded like I'm so sad
    This is the problem with bamboo it's very very fragile and extreme temperature shifts bamboo really does not like

    I have ordered the same flute from Amazon to see whether it's a better construction than the one that the music company is sending out to replace the one that is broken am I even be in a different key and you can never have enough instruments in different keys I feel
    My native American flute comes tomorrow as well
    It's like Christmas Lol

    I have a tenner recorder made out of Maplewood that arrived on Wednesday
    I have an alto arriving on Saturday which is also made of the same wood
    I also have a pair would small recorder so that means I will have three of them and there are wooden so I can throw my plastic ones out why would you make an instrument a plastic for goodness sake
    I have a Chinese flute on the way from Hong Kong and I have a read instrument arriving from the states so they're going to take awhile to get here
    There are some recordings of my canna recorder on SoundCloud and there is also some new harp and flute stuff uploaded there as well
    Happy listening
    Feedback is always welcome

    I have branched out into melody harps
    I also have two normal freestanding ones
    The strings on the melody ones are made out of metal
    They sound like music boxes
    One is cherrywood and the other two are spruce bat with a maple top
    Really beautiful little things
    I will let you know when I've uploaded stuff at the moment I'm trying to get them to stay in tune which has been a nightmare

    Wow, you are prolific, a real boon for any festival bonfire. Especially liked the jigs, reels and the Eastern scale influenced pieces.

    Then you can actually see me in person

    Having music inside your head 24 hours a day can be really distracting
    Sometimes I wish I could have a break
    Like that's going to happen I don't think

    My partner is the same with art. He really doesn't know how to switch off. I am always so relieved when he actually starts to work on some project he has been brewing for a while. The only problem is that by the time he has finished a piece he is already way into something else in his head. Please let the weather change soon so he can get his arse kicked down to the allotment on a more regular basis!

    I have ordered another 15 string lap harp
    That will be coming tomorrow
    I'm getting my other 2 to stay in tune before I record them
    There is nothing worse than recording a piece and finding out to a three of your strings have a go on oats and she started recording
