Is Jochanaan now to be known as our resident "FLOUTIST FLAUTIST"

How well I know that sort of association - like as how I done say, by me usually when tired .... At least, that is when I let them come to the surface. unless I am in trusted company.

And now I hop to "high faluting" - which feels like it belongs in Psalm 150 ...

Believe me, that thought is not strange to me. I've asked for many years: If I am a flautist, who or what do I flaut? :mrgreen:

All this flouting of the flutist reminds me of James Galway responding to the question as to whether he was a flutist or a flautist. In his thick Irish brogue he said, "Naaww, I am just a flute player."

WOW. I think I only noticed him inhale one time.

My wife plays the saxophones and told me about breathing while playing. Kenny G explains it here...

However, I don't think it works as well for flute because there is less resistance since it has no reed. Is that correct Jochanaan?

Yes. Some have said it's possible, and I've heard of one player who could, but I've never tried. It is possible on my other main instrument, the oboe, but you'd need to be able to breathe both out and in while playing since the instrument has a very high resistance but uses very little air...

I have pretty high resistance, but I put out a lot of [at least warm] air.

My first wife was a flute player and I asked her once if it could be played while inhaling. She demonstrated the fallacy of that question, NO you cannot do that.

If you want to play while inhaling, use a harmonica, it was made for that. My church has a harmonica player and he good competition for the organist. The prior pastor's wife played the flute and when she did it brought back a lot of memories, and that brings tears still.

The oboe player of my school's orchestra used to do circular breathing. I never tried it myself.
