One of my rules is to practice my bass guitar each day. Do any of you guys play an instrument?

:) nlduffy

I play alto saxophone. I had to put it down a few years ago to finish my orthodontia, but it’s a goal of mine to begin playing again next year.

Dylan Pocock has a tip for the Play a musical instrument rule.

Heart.full.16 10 · 2,503 pts

A thought about juggling, kanji, and other difficult things I’ve chosen to learn. It is essential to accept with equanimity and unflappability a high error rate, when we are first trying to do a difficult thing. Our mindset must discount the failures and up-rate the successes and partial successes.

Since HM offered it, I picked “Musical Instrument” from the “Is it related to one of the elements?” menu. Does it fit? When our choir director is stopping us and saying do it again, he is listening for timbre, for a unified sound, for crisp and specific entrances and cut-offs, for unmistakeable vowels and consonants. The bar is high.

But we got here. We didn’t start here. Anything worth doing well is worth doing badly at first.

And doing again the next day.

And for these and other difficult things, the learning may be technical, but the ultimate payoff is emotional, dramatic, socially bonding or transformative. My brain is wired to construe these as a higher level of technical challenge, but I know that’s not a good fit. The performer’s challenge is a kind of multitasking, in that, while depending on “hitting the mark”, we must open our awareness to “the feeling in the room”, the ultimate aim of what we are creating, feelings of joy, wonder, delight, awe, connection with something beyond ourselves.

I have an audition coming up, and usually practice as if I’m getting judged right that second. If you’re in my situation, then try something like that! :)

What’s your approach to a practice rule when travelling? It feels a bit douchey to bring my banjo with me on vacation, especially given that I’ll be staying at a B&B and can barely play a note.

:) tdismukes
over 7 years ago

I gave myself a pass on practicing when I was travelling for work last month. (Unfortunately, I did lose a lot of psychological momentum due to the time off, so be warned.)

:) immlass
over 7 years ago

I would give myself a pass, especially given the hassle and risk to the instrument involved in travel (particularly air travel if that’s how you’re going). Maybe you can do something else banjo-related instead?

:) asnider
over 7 years ago

Is there any way that you can dp some fingering practice without actually having your banjo in your hands? That might help to keep the psychological momentum up, even though you won’t actually be playing.

:) Shepherd
over 7 years ago

That is a great idea, if only to give me an excuse to use the phrase “fingering practice” repeatedly in public and in front of my wife.

:) asnider
over 7 years ago

You may also want to consider the phrase “fingering exercises.” ;)

:) CatsRats33932
about 7 years ago

I prefer bringing my music along with me and running through it in my head. I play percussion, and there’s no way I can bring a snare drum with me everywhere I go!

:) devnicw
about 7 years ago

^ I do the same thing! Dragging a tenor sax along with me every time I travel doesn’t seem too fitting, so I make sure to bring my scores along for fingering exercises and such. Also, listening to the music you’re playing at the moment (be it professional recordings or those of yourself playing) helps tons!

Sate Kuda penambah stamina

KEDENGARANNYA memang belum begitu lazim; Sate Kuda. Tapi masakan yang satu ini memang lumayan banyak yang mengonsumsinya. Bahkan keberadaannya kerapkali dikaitkan dengan mitos-mitos makanan penambah stamina. Tak mengherankan bila keberadaannya selalu diburu oleh banyak orang. Salah satu penjaja sate kuda di Kota Semarang adalah Warung Makan Sate Kuda Pak Din yang berada di Jalan Veteran Semarang, tepatnya berada di pertigaan RSUD Kariadi Semarang. Warung sederhana yang dikelola oleh Kasidin (62) ini, saban harinya selalu menyediakan berporsi-porsi sate kuda dan aneka masakan dari binatang kuda.

Menurut Kasidi, para pembeli sate kuda ini merupakan konsumen khusus. Tidak semua orang suka dengan sate kuda. Selain jenis makanan seperti ini belum familier, kebanyakan yang mencari masakan ini adalah orang-orang yang percaya pada khasiat khasiat daging kuda. Selebihnya, adalah orang-orang yang penasaran dan orang-orang yang memang telah biasa mengonsumsinya.

’’Daging kuda itu memiliki banyak khasiat, salah satunya adalah untuk menambah stamina dan gairah. Di luar itu, bisa juga untuk membantu mengatasi risiko asam urat, rematik, kencing manis, asma sampai gatal eksim. Karena kuda termasuk binatang yang suka bergerak, kolesterolnya pun menjadi sangat rendah,’’urai Kasidin mengenai khasiat dari masakan yang diolahnya.

Sama
Dari sisi bentuk, masakan sate kuda memang tak jauh berbeda dengan sate-sate lainnya. Bentuk sajiannya juga sama, yakni dicelupkan dengan larutan kecap yang telah dilengkapi dengan berbagai macam lalapan. Yang sedikit berbeda barangkali hanya masalah rasa. Daging kuda memiliki rasa agak manis dibanding daging-daging lainnya.

Untuk mendapatkan daging kuda, Kasidin mengaku tidak bisa memerolehnya di Kota Semarang. Setiap tiga hari sekali dia harus pergi ke Desa Segarayasa Pleret Bantul Yogyakarta, karena di sanalah daging-daging kuda terbiak tersedia. Dari segi penjualan, perharinya Kasidi bisa menghabiskan lima kg daging kuda dan 12 kg bila pada hari Minggu atau libur.

Sedangkan bicara masalah harga, warung yang buka pada pukul 11.00-23.00 WIB ini (khusus bulan puasa buka pukul 16.00-23.00 WIB), memiliki patokan harga yang standar untuk tiap jenis masakan. Baik sate, rica-rica, gongso maupun tongseng, harganya hanya dipatok 13 ribu rupiah perporsi (belum termasuk nasi).
