Zen 08 - The First Concert

Aaaaah! It's come and gone. The display of months of hard work and persistent back/hand/arm pain. The final product. Apart from the expected minor errors I think it went smoothly...enough. I didn't cry from starvation nor did I suffer cardiac arrest so yes I think it was a good experience. Next month is Higashi-Ichiki... I can't wait... :-/

The performances could have been better but what else can one expect work under such conditions. Atleast I didn't drop my bachi this time, actually I haven't dropped my bachi for a while, I think i've finally gotten this grip thing under control. I did forget the words to the song though, so my years of lip-syncing in the choir finally paid off.

OH yeh!

NaRoChaJin (our solo piece) got fucked up by the Guitarist a.k.a. Mr. Chaplin. [you'd have to see him to get it] It probably would have been better if we were humming it to raas....hey there's an idea!

What else? Let's see, my hands, back, arms, feet, entire body aches despite them releasing us from going back to Fukiage to unload the truck. Trust me ppl this body was no made for heavy lifting...no siree bob.

All in all, i'm glad I found taiko or rather taiko found me and subsequently imprisoned my soul. =S

As I type this my arms ache So i'm out.

Mata Ne!
