Native American style flutes by Laughing Crow (Richard Maynard)
Flutes in the Native American Style created by a musician for the musician.
I am very pleased to offer you another resource for sheet music for the Native American flute. These books can be purchased alone or with the CDs. This gives you the opportunity to hear the music that's in the books. The music is written in Nakai tablature. The Mary Youngblood books are written in "finger tab." as well.
Remembrance, Songs from a Journey by John Vames
Just released, April 2011 is "Remembrance: Songs from a Journey" by John Vames. As some of you may know, John taught Native American Flute to many people at Scottsdale Community College. John loved to play and teach music. He worked as a professional flute, sax/woodwind player all his life. An accomplished musician, John spent the latter part of his public life teaching and playing the Native American Flute. John passed away in 2010, but his wife Sherry has gleaned some of his recordings, put them on CD and had them transcribed to sheet music in Nakai tablature. You can listen to a samples and learn more about the book and CD by clicking here.
Songs for All Seasons Songbook with Companion Play Along CD: Select Songs by Mark Holland & Autumn's Child
Songs for all Seasons is Mark Holland’s Native American flute songbook featuring his personal selection of songs from his massive collection of published works. This marvelous collection of songs showcase Marks’ talents as a songwriter and performer. This easy to play 76 page songbook, features ten of his original compositions transcribed in Nakai flute Tablature and finger charts for the six hole flute and one song transcribed in Toubat tablature and finger charts for the diatonic six hole flute. No matter what level of flute player you are, you can play these songs. Also included is the first ever “Flute Karaoke” CD! A play along companion CD featuring four songs with no flute tracks. All the other instrumental portions of the songs are on the CD so that you can blend your own flute playing style with the music. All ten of the songs can be heard on Marks original recordings: For Such A Time As This, Visions and Dreams, Four Winds, Born Out of Silence, Progressive World, Four Winds & Storytelling, Greatest Gift. You can play along with Mark by listening to these CD’s and following the songbook. As a bonus three songs have chords to allow the flutist to play with an accompaniment guitar or piano.
A note about the included CD. It contains the backing tracks for 4 of the songs in this book. It's like you have Autumn's Child playing the backing tracks using guitar, cello, percussion, etc. without the Native American Flute. The music for the flute is written in the book and you provide the flute part. They're calling it "flute karaoke" in the book. Suffice it to say, the musicianship and arrangements are world class as they are the backing tracks you hear on Mark's records.
