[stupid story] I really have to have that music party  
Many many months ago I heard a song on a commerical and it immediately struck me as something I wanted to know what it was. I mostly forgot about it, but then when playing random games at a friends house, heard a remix of it. I then proceeded to buy that game (mostly because it was a fun game) and played it enough to get the name of the peice of music. I then hunted the orginal track down on amazon and now the album is waiting on my wish list. I really like it, so I'm glad random chance got me back to the peice of music. I don't know why I like it though.

I really have to have the "bring your mp3 collection and share music, via free assiciation" party, since I have no clue why I like once piece of music and not another.

It was fun when we did that a few years ago.
I need to expand my music collection, so you should
have another one of those...

I have the japanese version and don't play it enough to really warrent getting the US. I'm glad to see it's making fans in the US market though.

ah, so you gots it. cool.

are there any good tips on holding the sticks? the manual is rather plain that way. hmmm, perhaps a net search. i've figured out a couple things from other drumming - but time will tell.

Taiko as an art form has very little to say on how to hodl the sticks, other than keep your thumbs out of the way and don't death grip them. I don't think you can learn much about real tiako form the game, just like you can't learn much about reall dancing from DDR.

The biggest basic thing you can learn about real tiako is that the arms move in a D pattern, when you bring them up, make sure your arm is striaght and the stick out the length of it, then when it's above your head, let the stick fall, butt end down and then snap at the end. Of course, if you did this on the controler it would wimper at you.
