im wondering from an experienced flute player... i have seen cardboard flutes, and im wondering... if you measured out the holes to be able to play aan exact chromatic scale, would it be an instrument easy enough to play to even be practical, or would it be a stress to even get a note out?

i dont think it's worthy of an instructable. you just get a cardboard tube, cut a rectangular hole to blow across, and instead of keys, just punch tone hjoles in the tube. oh, and seal the end closest to the hole you blow across, like a real flute, i am actually a trumpet player, and my flute embouchre isnt really established yet.

make sure you're blowing across the opening, maybe try experimenting with the size of the opening (cut it down or something). Also try only holding it from the squishy bulb, if you hold the tube it might prevent it from resonating. Note: I haven't made one so I have no idea if any of this will help.
