I decided to try to become more productive in the percussion section than just beating on the toys (sleigh bells, triangle, casaba, etc.) sp I bought this. A friend has offered to teach me how to play it too. My winter project.
We had a power outage at 3-something AM Friday. Power came up at 10:55 - but my computer did not. thanks to Christmas, it took until about 2 hours ago to get it back. Stupid reason but since these things are delicate and I am ham-handed it was wiser to wait for the guru. At least my nightmare of needing a new computer did not materialize.
Until 2016 (before cataract removal) I realized my eyes, fingers, & brain did not move at the same speed. I donated my baritone sax (had played bari in high school) to the Shinnston Community Band and they let me into the percussion section. I do not know what I am doing, just beating on the "toys" (suspended symbol, gong, triangle, sleigh bells, etc.) and having a blast. December 2021 I was invited to do the same with the MCPAEC Community Band in the county north of me. Have not started banging on the xylophone yet with the holidays. Soon.
