I love how I can pour my soul into expressing even a single note a hundred different ways when I'm feeling down, and this expression provides an escape. Swaying, wavering, bending, stretching, exploding, tapering, bouncing. That sounds like what I'm playing with.

Yes, I love doing that too. When I'm warming up for "serious" practice I always do some long tones, mostly Ro, Tsu and some variations of them. Eventually I will get "lost" in these sounds. Interestingly, I'm missing nothing, I get something! Smile

That's what I like best about playing shakuhachi and about listening to shakuhachi being played. When I was new to shakuhachi music, the idea of 'no melody, no rhythm, only tone' seemed so strange. Now I experience it as being beautifully evocative and cathartic, even when it's just one tone.

Yes, I too enjoy just a tone, or two, played in so many different ways on the shakuhachi.

I have a very long, maybe 3.3, shakuhachi made by Jon Kypros that has no holes. It is a beautiful instrument that I can play for hours and not get tired of hearing the notes and variations and harmonics...all without every having to think about shading, half holing, bouncing or trilling.....
