Hey Jordan,Very nice. I enjoyed your playing.It was also cool to see and hear you in live action video!!Keep blowin'take care,Greg
Jordan,Pretty incredible that you can actually make music form that beautiful weapon. A little off topic, I posted the lyrics to a song by Jack Johnson. I was listening to it and I thought about your recent karma post. Don't know why.I think it sums up some of the major points of the dharma. In times like thesein times like thosewhat will be will beand so it goesand it always goes on and onand on and on it goesand theres always been laughing, crying, birth, and dyingboys and girls with hearts that take and give and breakand heal and grow and recreate and raise and nurturebut then hurt from time to times like theseand times like thosewhat will be will beand so it goesand there will always be stop and go and fast and slowaction, reaction, sticks and stones and broken bonesthose for peace and those for warand god bless these ones not those onesbut these ones made times like theseand times like thosewhat will be will beand so it goesand it always goes on and onand on and on it goesbut somehow i know it wont be the samesomehow i know it'll never be the sameHasta luego (till later)
Way cool!, Jordan! I'm going to show it to your Dad! Came through loud and clear and think it's neat that you're doing something like this!Love,Mom
And.........how'd you do that with the video thingy?!!!Mom
That was way cool! And it sounded really good to to my albeit untrained ear. Maybe your next modification should be going electric. :)
Thank you. Way fun!
Greg,Glad you enjoyed it, thanks!---------------------------------- Yamakoa Nice song, I see what you mean.__________________________________Mom, Thanks, glad you liked it.Google Video lets you upload stuff, sometimes it takes a while but It is pretty easy to use if you got a camera and mic and video making software. All these things are built into my macbook LoveJordan___________________________________Jeff,I don’t think I will be going electric, but I am glad you liked it.___________________________________ Mike Doe Thanks!___________________________________ Will Glad you liked it!All, Take care!Jordan
I had to sneak back and watch you play again. Very nice.
Thanks Greg, You have inspired me to practice more!
You didnt embarrass yourself at all! it was better than I can do! I actually found your playing quite beautiful...especially considering it came from a piece of pvc,lol... Ive attempted to make a PVC shaku a few times due to my inability to afford a real one, however mine have not come out quite as good as yours... if you have some pointers for me, Id appreciate them, plus a close up photo of the utaguchi from multiple angles as I believe it may be what Ive been messing up...
Curator, I am sorry but I have givin them all away. If I get around to making some more I will be sure to take a picture of the utaguchi from multiple angles. If your local and got $10.00 we could take a trip to lowes and make a batch in my messy garage!
Oh, sorry I see your in California by your profile. Doh!
LOL, its ok, yeah im definately not local, but if I was I wouldve definately taken you up on the offer, im going to attempt to make another batch of them myself soon here, I noticed another big difference, one of the holes wasnt in line with the others, makes sense since thats usually the case with bamboo ones as well, the ones ive been making all of the holes have been perfectly centered, so maybe thats why it doesnt sound quite right to me... well, Ya live ya learn,lol.
Hey!Thanks for your shakuhachi video.As a beginning player I was looking for websites with instructional content - and found this little piece a very helpful example how one can produce some good sound easily - even with pvc!GreetingsDirk, Germany
Dirk, glad I could be useful. Thank you for your comments. Long tones, long tones!
