Re: I'm excited to finally join the ranks of stick players!
so far.. i've found it useful to both remember and forget everything i know about all other instruments.
i'm sure that was helpful.
Jeez, only Stick players use Zen for practical advice
Other practical Zen Stickissisms I've met are:
Q: Which Stick should I buy?
A: All Sticks are good - buy the one that is meant for you.
Q: What tuning is best for my purpose?
A: All tunings are good. Use that which works best for you.
Q: How many fingers should I use to play the Stick?
A: It will become clear how many fingers you personally need to play the Stick.
I know the last comment was good practical advice., otherwise he'd have said 'It will be revealed to you...'
Now - are there any Surrealist stick players? I guess Boris Bazuroff is more an Impressionist?
