Post Bodhran - Tradional Music Percusive Rhythm

I signed up with Blayne at http://www.blaynechastian.com to check out his Bodhran lessons
that was after a free week with http://www.oaim.ie in their whistle and bodhran lessons.
So between the 2 sites....
What did I learn? hmmm that's the cool bit

Reel rhythm
Jig rhythm
The Skin - tone manipulation
Accidental triplets (neither sharp nor flat just accidental)

So as a reminder and celebration of my humble bodhran beginnings I've made this recording encompassing what I've learned so far in my 2.5 weeks
of practice. It'll be good for a laugh for you guys if nothing else, O and please, just one thing no pen-knife tipper jokes
as I've already checked and I can't find them anywhere on-line.
So have a listen and comment if you wish

Bodhran, cipín & mé

Whyt kind of Bodhran do you have?
I thought about getting one but did read that the cheaper ones are no good at all and the recomended ones where quite expensive.
Thought about getting a waltons bodhran, i like the waltons whistles hopefully the bodhran as well.

Now that i already know what a Cipin is, ... i could try a Bodhran 😉

Andreas I bought a Waltons 16" deep side, double skin http://www.waltons.ie/Product/View.aspx?id=10653 was about £80. When it arrived I sand papered (with 400 grit) the surface and inside of the skin to make it smooth and done the same with the cipín (stick)

.... rasing an older topic...

I too got a Bodhran in May of this year. Fortunately for me I've acces to the author of the Bodhran book Steafan Hannigan as he lives about 45 min. away from me and had alesson with him. The drum I purchased from him is hand made out of Ottawa, On.

He currently is selling Chris Hedwitschak Bodhrans ... yes expensive but the best in the world and he is in Germany Andreas .....

Another one crazy for more and more instruments 😉

Thanks for the hint, i checked the website, he build beautifull bodhrans but my bodhran plas have to wait, i am saving money for a piano and if i get a bodhran, it has to be a cheapy first, cause i am not sure if i will play much - i probabbly get one of the cheaper walton bodhrans with a pianting on top 😉
