"Thank you. I really like this site. Just starting out with my bowed psaltery. Having some difficulties with my cat, though.... She tries to attack and bite my bowing arm !!! Let me rephrase that, she HAS bit my bowing…"
"Hi Karen, The psaltery arrived today and I've just finished watching the 2 hour dvd. I'm so blown away by the value of this instrument and all Rick Long sends along with it for the money. Can't wait to start playing…"
Thank you. I really like this site. Just starting out with my bowed psaltery. Having some difficulties with my cat, though.... She tries to attack and bite my bowing arm !!! Let me rephrase that, she HAS bit my bowing arm.... I'm thinking maybe it hurts her ears ? Ever hear of this happening with cats and bowed psalteries ? This apartment is small, so looks like I'll have to practice elsewhere, lol. Thanks again for the welcome ! Have a good day.
