I study this little musical marvel affectionately known as “Coda EDC Flute” and it just amazes me all the thought and care Karl put into this musical instrument. I had pretty much given up on the idea ever coming to fruition. But Karl stuck with it. Thanks Karl.
It has become my go to Ocarina/flute now. The more I play it the better I like it.  ??? 8)
I just hope that someday I can do it justice with my skill level. I think that within a couple of years we will start seeing some amazing performances done with the Coda. Hopefully one of those will be mine ;)

Hey, ubizmo! This was awesome. You and Karl always do a great job. I cant get enough of you guys. Thanks. I hope to see more from you.  ;)
Have you ever thought of making just a simple album like Karl did? I hope Karl does a new one with the Coda too. :)

Now that I’m comfortable with the fingering I am wanting to become more familiar with the alternative fingering of some of the notes. Just like the overlapping notes can help with some songs. The alternative fingering can help with some songs. My goal is to become super familiar with my Coda.  :o ??? ::) If you never allow this to happen it will hinder your skill level with that instrument. You want your fingers to just automatically know where to go. It is the same basic process that we go through when learning a new song. The better we get with this the quicker we can learn new songs well. :)

Karl and his crew is really starting to ramp it up around here with lots of helpful information.
Also other members are adding a lot of info to keep it interesting. There is a wealth of songs to learn and it is getting better all the time. I am so glad I started working on my music sight reading again. I never was very good at it. So getting moderately better was relatively easy. But I still have a ways to go.  :)

Yeah Karl tried to keep the holes as small as possible yet still allow people with large fingers the ability to play the Coda also. I think He did pretty good on the compromise. But it means
People with small fingers will have to be more precise on their fingering.

Being able to skillfully play with feeling is a game changer. Even if you only plan to play for yourself. Feeling the music you are playing is awesome. :)

This is like the one David did this year. 2019 that I got involved with but has not been finished yet. It was harder than I thought it would be. :-[

So now that I have got my basic skill level up to a decent level on the Coda. I am trying to concentrate more on the details of my playing. Like accent, flow, color, timbre and timing. Things that affect the feel of the sound and music. In other words playing with more feeling. For some people this comes more naturally than others. If it does not come naturally. I suggest listening to musicians that are known for that. The more you listen, the quicker you will pick it up. Also recording your self will reveal many problems you might not notice otherwise.
Now word of warning about playing in front of people. You can play really well by yourself and get in front of other people even if it is a recording and sound horrible. So that will get better with practice. ??? ;)

Something I want to emphasize to people is to not give up. To keep practicing and pay attention to the details. Like breath , finger placement and instrument placement. It all makes a difference. Also listen to music and musicians. Watch people play and talk to them about music and playing. Finally take Karl up on some of his challenges. I’m hoping to do some recordings soon also and hope to see some of you playing soon. Take advantage of the EDC part of the Coda.  ;) :o ??? ::) 8) ;D
