Most 6-hole Minor key flutes allow both of these fingering to some extent. Since most flute makers do not intentional tune for every pitch in the extended scale or for Hold 4 fingering, the tuning of these alternative fingerings may be less than perfect, but may be sufficient to play melodies that do not fit the Minor Pentatonic Scale. Although these charts show Half-holing [1/2] or Quarter-holing [1/4] the bottom hole, it is a difficult technique, and on some flutes, just not possible.
