Sleepy Rosie Bodhran CD-Rom Tutor for Beginners? (11) RE: Bodhran CD-Rom Tutor for Beginners? 19 Feb 09

""Slow Sets for Beginners and Practice". You might PM her and see if she still has some."

Well, interestingly enough, it seems another good Catperson has offered to send me a redundant copy of this same disc!
Good 'ere innit?

And Mr. Red, no I'm not proficient in the least in any instrument. Though I keep meaning to get on with the mandolin I have (and err, a couple of other things which I still have failed to tackle.).

With regard drumming in particular, I did have a go at djembe for a bit - and I got a taste for the vibe of drum, but the multi-part African rythms for djembe, made it less interesting to do for myself. Being a bit of a 'me, myself and I' kinda girl, I dislike feeling reliant on others (hence the Damascene revelation that discovering English trad. song has been.) The other thing that appeals with drum accompaniament, is it can be very minimal. And I like that idea in relation to the naked honesty of unaccompanied song.

So hopefully I could use it more as an 'accent'/'drama' or even 'interludes' to the song, where it worked - rather than the dominant feature being the instrument/music and the voice/song being secondary to the music/instrument.

Well, maybe Bodhran will work for me. It seems to tick enough boxes thus far.
