This is totally cool. Master flutist (flautist) Robert Dick playing on a Glissando Headjoint (available via his website). Wish I had $2K for one of these……
What a great player!
Sorta flute related. I think the video was shot mirror (hence the hands being backwards).
I did not know that former Fox News person, and former White House spokesperson was a flute play. You go Tony!
James Galway recently did a video where he played 16 of his flutes. He took out the color so there was no cheating as to what material the flute being played was made out of. I thought they all sounded great.

I’m curious as to why Sir James does not have a Powell nor a Haynes in his collection? Or even a Yamaha?
Greg Patillo has some excellent youtube videos of him beatboxing and playing flute.
Super Mario Brothers!
Excellent stuff. He has a Myspace page (I hate myspace). Check him out!
If you want to learn more about beatboxing, check out Humanbeatbox. They have some videos and tutorials there. I found the site very enjoyable, especially some of the demos. The guy has this English/Australian accent that just cracks me up. (L as in Lollipop).
But seriously, beatboxing and flute is a very cool thing. Coolest thing I’ve heard since Tom Scott’s flute solo on Patrick Williams tune Threshold.
