Thank you very much, Janet.  I am very glad that you like my video. 

I am, too praying that we will suffer from less disasters and that those who are suffering from disasters will get back on their everyday lives again as quickly as possible.

I love this beautiful song, and you have made it even more beautiful.  I too will be praying for the people affected by the earthquakes, especially that God would quiet the earth down.  Your playing is so lovely.  Thank you!

Thank you very much, Bubba. 

I think the Bowed Psaltery music has the strange but wonderful power that opens up people’s hearts, so gently and naturally.  I want to keep on working to maximize that power.  Again, thank you very much.  Nozomi

Amplified Psaltery with Cello Strings built by Rick Long

This video is a personal favorite because it shows a unique type of bowed psaltery with a gorgeous sound. When I heard it I broke out in goose bumps!
