The taiko busy season is coming up, but I'm looking forward to having the time to play with it with the stomp box and see what I can come up with. I was getting some interesting grooves last night without effects, but nothing I could sing to.
It will be slow, but I really hope that I can keep with it and do something cool with this instrument. I'm not amazingly passionate about it, but perhaps a strong comfort with it is better than a blazing passion since it might be more sustainable.
I don't think I'll be up to speed on the jigs and reels I was hoping to be ready for in June, but that's ok and I am getting faster every day.
I find myself wanting to buy gig clothes though and having to remind myself that I won't be gig worth for another year or two.
