Subject: RE: Help: when you hold a flute...
rounding all of your fingers, including your thumb, might relieve some tension....also rounding both arms like a big hug, rather than elbows hanging down, and standing straight with head forward, not tilted, bringing the flute to your relaxed position, not you to the flute....the whole body works together.

(for many years i played classical flute, so this advice might not be relevant to irish flute).
