The Bodhrán Duel

Those of you who don't know what a bodhrán is, kindly look it up on Wikipedia. ^_-

@Frootza put forward the idea of him and me having a bodhrán duel in early November 2014. This is the result of said idea. Frootza's bodhrán is the higher-sounding of the two; mine is quite low.

This is our impassioned playing, the result of us being lost in the music. Slips and everything, it's up. We hope you enjoy it.

That was dope as hell gurl! How long did it take to compose and/or record this? You have quite the passion in this piece. I'mma download this for future use. :p

5/5 10/10

Composing didn't take a while. Recording did, in that there was a long break between Frootza's take (which was in November) and mine (which was in January). I needed to listen to this a few times so as to get into the groove, and Frootza had already told me he was doing a 90 BPM groove, so I thought I'd follow suit.

My playing was done in one single take. Although admittedly, I sometimes feel embarrassed about the slips -- but many have told me these make the piece human.

Thanks -- glad you enjoyed it!

This brings a smile to my face-- very fun to listen to... And I share the same sentiments about the "slips." Really makes me feel as if I was there in the room with yall


Not really though. xD It's pretty excellent! ^.^/
The mistakes are nice, although not too noticeable unless you're paying a lot of attention to the details.

Feels very tribal like
