Haunted Coast flutes differ from other flutes. Haunted Coast Flutes sound different and are played in a pentatonic scale. Native American Flutes are not like the metal flutes we typically know that are played in a chromatic scale. Typical Native American Flute are tuned in keys that make them produce a “haunting” tone. Hence the name: Haunted Coast Flutes.
It’s possible to play tunes and music that North Americans are familiar with, the music typically played on a Native American style flute comes from the soul. Native American style flutes originate in the cultures of the Indigenous people of the American South West.
