Actually, if you mean he was holding the lyre like a guitar, it's not as silly as it looks. There is a technique where a type of lyra is strummed right across all the strings, and the unwanted ones ar ...

You probably can make bamboo tongues for composite reeds. I haven't tried that, but have tried it with elder, and that works just fine. You probably have to scrape the bamboo tongue a bit thinner tha ...

Seth, most gajda chanters have straight bores. There is a regional variant that is tapered, while identical in all playing-related ways, but it is not very common. Just louder.

Olle is right . I still think it would work in this case, very simply because the holes need to be exactly as much smaller as they are when taped up. If they work with the tape, they will work drilled ...
