I'm learning how to play a G key Xiao flute. I found this fingering chart:
But i don't understand the meaning of the numbers in front of each note. Well, actually i don't understand anything because i don't have any idea of music.
What do the numbers after each note name mean?
The story: For all my life i loved Chinese music, this sweet melancholic sound from flutes,xun and erhu. I never had any music instrument in my life and also i cannot read music. Although i am a little old i decided and i bought a Xiao flute G key 8 holes right hand, well better late than ever. As i wrote above i don't have no idea what notes are, how to read music and i never had any music instrument. But i fight a terrible disease and because i love music and flutes i believe this step it will give me energy, it will give me life. It was always a dream for me to play flute. So, please help me to learn how to play the Xiao flute. Please!! Thank you! God bless!
