One lesson in ...

and a few more 'pennies' have dropped. Guitar strumming is proving to be a good basis for playing  the bodhran.

 After one lesson - the mother of all jigs routine in 6/8 time

Me playing  along to a Slip Jig in 9/8 time

The trickiest part in all this was setting up the track to which I practice, set the webcam timer and then start playing in time with the music on one screen as the timer counted down in another.

This is the bodhran I have on loan from m' tutor. MWNN is taking me to test drive some others on Saturday.
