Cameo D. 8-124

The Flute

The flute started out thousands of years ago. They didn't have keys and were not made of metal. Instead they were created of either wood or bone. Flutes were used by hunters, soldiers, shepherds and musicians. These instruments had pitch problems due to the fact that they did not have keys but holes. Keys were put in to fix the complicated fingerings and odd pitches.
