The tuning of individual finger holes varies by flute maker, and varies by popular trends. This creates a challenge for any printed songbook that include pictures of open and closed finger holes. The FluteTree songbook does not have this problem since it adds the fingering pictures when you select a melody. This allows you to choose between 5-hole flutes, 6-hole flutes, dozens of flute makers, how the fingers holes are displayed: up-right or upside down, and gives the opportunity some people who are fluent in Nakai Tablature or want to practice at becoming fluent to disable the flute pictures altogether.

For those who teach or want an exercise to learn Nakai TAB, you may select blank flutes, which displays all holes open, when printed out can be manually completed with a Number 2 pencil. Also you may select Number TAB which replaces the flute pictures with numbers, which is an approach promoted by Scott August.

The currently selected fingering will be written above the title of each melody. The orientation of the flute is indicated with a small flute that appears beneath the treble clef. By default, the songbook starts with the most common 6-hole flute fingering, and displays the flute with the mouth pointing up. To get back to this screen, you click the "with finger pictures" link that appears at the top of each melody.

to default fingering and orientation.
