My class can now play a 3 note song. And I have a big fat blister on my index finger. I guess that means I’m doing it right.
I received the playing 3 string guitar lesson in the mail, and it’s FREAKING BRILLIANT playing by ear. If only I’d been taught Suzuki as a kid, maybe I wouldn’t be a musical retard right now…And I still can’t find hardwood to make a guitar neck, so I can’t play around. So frustrating!
Here’s some modern day 가야금 병창 (playing gayageum while singing)
She’s playing a modern iteration of the instrument called Dahyeon Gayageum. It’s got 15-25 strings and tuned diatonic so it can play with other modern instruments. We’re learning on the traditional Sanjo 12 string.
I just found lots of cool music video’d all around Seoul on my beloved internet!
Now that I’ve broken through, there’s an easy trail to a giant pile of indie artists to search through! This makes up for all the other social crap I have to deal with. Now I want to move to Seoul and find these bands and hang out in cafes and…Jesus, why do I have to be 46? And not enough hours in the day.
