Shameless selfpromotion again.

Here's my newest weird polyrhythm, this time on a six-stringed lyre.

You have to have an extra bit of brain cells to play those complicated polyrythms.

Much harder than rub-belly-pat-head.

You know, Dale, even as conceited as I am, I don't think it's really that hard. It's just that no one else (as far as I know) has gone in for this stuff.

It is a pleasure to listen to, it can be quite hypnotic, and it's because of your presentation. I don't think there is anything wrong in admitting you're good at something and you, dear zilch, have a rare and wonderful talent.
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?Then he is not omnipotent.Is he able, but not willing?Then he is malevolent.Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? (Epicurus circa:300 BC)

Why thank you, Jessica. Okay- I'm not a bad musician. But I know quite a few great musicians, and I'm not one. Again, I've just chosen to go down a path that no one else has, so I'm the best at it so far. And being as weird as my path is, I somehow doubt that many others will take it up.

I'm working up some new stuff that I hope to get recorded and online soon, including lots of thirteens. If I ever get an album together, I'm tempted to call it Triskaidekaphilia- Love of Thirteen.

Write some harmonies and arrange that for string quartet!

Hmmm.... I can almost imagine it. Good idea, I'll give it a thought. I'm hoping to collaborate with my fiddler friend Shira, but a quartet would also be interesting.
