Music for Native American Flute, Volume One is a collection of 40 pieces from all over the world. The music is set in the Nakai system of tablature notation (Nakai TAB) as well as standard music notation, and all of the pieces have fingering charts beneath the tablature. The book also includes notes about each piece as well as fingering charts for both pentatonic and extended scales. It is not necessary to read music or TAB to play the tunes in this book. The accompanying CD features all of the tunes in the same order in which they appear in the book. Those players who don't read music or tablature can use the CD to learn the rhythms of the pieces. The music in this volume was thoughtfully and joyfully, selected specifically for Native American Flute; wandering Kokopelli-style through a world of tunes, the author chose dances, lilts, and ancient songs, some as old as the rock art images of Kokopelli himself. A dance from the Greek islands, a rant from the Scottish highlands, a melody from the mountains of Peru, and an ancient song captured almost 800 years ago by the quill of a Castilian king are a few of the pieces collected.
