BILLY WHITEFOX FLUTEI got this thinking it would be a 'piece of cake' to learn to play. I have absolutly no talent. You can do better than I can. This a traditional cane flute with the holes burned and all decoration done with a hot wire or blade. The traditional method. About 22.5 inches long. What you see is what you get. Don't know anything about 'key' or anything musical.
