I am interested in building a native anerican flute, but I would like to have it play a compleat C scale so I can play simple common tunes. Is this possible? Any suggestions or advice?

If you are still looking for info on the NAF with special tuning I would suggest you build the flute as per NAF windway but put the tone holes as per a bamboo flute. You can find the spacings on line.

I know this is an old thread but if anyone is interested in building these this web site has literally everything you need to know look under the tab crafting. www.flutopedia.com I built a few native American flutes it is a fun project and easy to play.
