Hi Chris -- According to Bill's roster for the "got RO?" workshop on Sunday, we were both there but didn't get a change to talk. I would have liked to have met you to thank you for this amazing resource. I may not be commenting, but I've found your postings very helpful in my initiation process into the world of shakuhachi. Keep up the fantastic work!
