GUEST,Lavengro Bodhrán Tutorial (28) RE: Bodhrán Tutorial 05 Sep 13


Gnu-"Then again, I have played cardboard boxes, water jugs, beer bottles, phone book and, my favourite kitchen trick, the aluminum beer can"

Sometimes at a session (if there is another bodhrán player) I will play one stick against another to sort of replicate a set of bones. Don't do it that often, but it can work well with the right tune.

I went to the home/workshop of Diarmaid O'Kane on Monday to pick out a new bodhrán. Spent three hours there talking about all sorts-Epiphone tenor banjos, the Derry Fleadh, martial arts, whiskey and of course bodhráns! And I left with a new drum!

Great fella, great bodhrán maker and great company.

I am a lucky man and can't wait to give my new toy its first public outing later!
