It's very likely that the G or G# pad is leaking. Take it to a repair shop and they can tell you whether it's you or if there is a problem with the flute.

My 9 year old daughter seems to have a similar issue having hard time playing G and F. It seems that it might be just her lack of blowing power, but I wanted to see if it might be something with the flute. When she blows hard, she can produce the note.

Background:

-Artley flute from the 80s (was my flute when I was in elementary school)
-I can play the notes just fine

Thanks in advance for any help.
