That sounds really interesting, I once saw a tv programme where a
Japanese violinist swapped ideas with San musicians (San aka
South African Bushmen). Their instruments were made, for
example, from an old tin and pieces of wire, and every time they
played the same bit of music again it sounded totally different to
him (and me), due to their particular style of improvised variation.
At the end he wanted to give them a violin, but first had to persuade
them that his tapes and what he had learned were worth a violin --
they dislike feeling under obligation.

lol, me too, although it does sound a bit cheesy there.

Hurrah, another Cart and Cwidder afficionado, it's not so long since
I was defending it. I'd be interested to hear more from you about
