  Measuring 20 3/4" in length, this 6-holed concert tuned unsplit willow branch flute in G minor pentatonic, modes 1 & 4, plays the gypsy scale as well as 3 upper octave notes when the top (sixth) hole is half-holed.  One of the joys in the making of branch flutes is showing the natural beauty that is there in all aspects of the branch.  With this willow, I've played with the color contrast between the lighter wood and smooth under-layer of bark.  In a few of the deeper wood wrinkles on the left side of the branch the rougher outer bark has been kept.  The whole flute has been finely finished and a few knot holes inlaid with crushed turquoise.  Elk lacing with turquoise and horn bone beads holds the bird to the nest. The branch for this flute was gathered along San Marcos Creek, in San Diego County, CA
amongst a wild grove of willow trees.
