koto lesson  
i had my first koto lesson. I got several bits of notation, which is the thing I'm most starving for. That and basic technique. It's a good thing I know kanji numbers because anytime I hit the last three strings (To I Kin) I was lost because didn't know the kanji for them.

I feel like I should make an enlgish notation page for anyone else like me who don't have access to a teacher.

There was a bit of a language barrier, but she had a little translator bo for the words she didn't know and I have a pretty good understanding of things by just being shown.

I wasn't sure I could afford $50 a month for lessons, but they said I could do a half hour instead, which does seem with in the budget.

That's cool that they're flexible. I'd love to see the koto sometime, and listen to you play it. Probably impractical to bring it to a jam session i guess... :-)

Hey, I took it "camping" but yes, it is 6ft long.
