Abstract: In this research note the results for the eigenfrequencies of the uniform and non-uniform magnetic flux tubes of Stenuit et al. (1998) are reconsidered. In that paper it is shown that the eigenfrequencies may have a damping rate due to two mechanisms causing a loss of energy. In non-uniform flux tubes the eigenmodes can be damped by resonant absorption. The other mechanism is leakage of wave energy into the surroundings, which can occur for both uniform and non-uniform flux tubes.
