I'm a student of Alcvin Ryuzen Ramos. Studied for a couple of years, then fell away for a couple. Recently back to practicing again, now, so very happy to see another resource. Thanks to all involved in starting this forum up!
I like all bamboo flutes, but my primary interest is jinashi. I also like all shakuhachi sounds and music forms, but honkyoku is what drew me in and back.
I harvest and make my own flutes. Approximately as poorly as I play them. My other interests are bicycles, motorcycles, and computer programming.
