Today, I played with my stick

It was intimidating and frightening -- it's huge, and the fingering technique is all different -- and I sucked at it. But over the course of the jam, I started to get the hang of it, of tapping instead of strumming or plucking, of the strange tuning, of the strings strung backwards (rather than the standard ascending fourths, it's tuned in descending fifths), with the lowest string in the middle.

Gah. Terrifying instrument, and yet too fucking cool for words.

But I succeeded. And the guys suggested that I bring it back.
