I also have a shakuhachi, an end blown bamboo flute. And then I felt I needed more rhythm so I got some bongo drums. I never quit guitar but strayed from the forum. Now I am committing myself to more public playing, easy stuff with tabs right in front of me. Also trying to re memorize things I used to know and expand on that group. As much as I love shakuhachi, I am better at guitar and can do more with it. The music scores available are almost unlimited.
