difficult interesting pieces

working on difficult pieces and instruments, all
with songs by Azure Carter. the first is the
Vietnamese dan moi, the second (which is a simpler
instrument) is the Larson parlor guitar, the
third and fourth are the Cambodian tro, the fifth
is the most unusual, the four-bladed Chinese
mouth-harp - the kouqin, and the sixth is the
Balochistani ghichak. all of these are hard pieces;
my favorite is the first, but all of them except
the parlor guitar work with unusual sounds and
techniques. we're recording again (vinyl and cd),
and these are some of the things we'll be working
