I have a bodhran at work here (just in case), so I looked at how I
hold it.. bodhran on left knee, braced between by ribs and upper arm,
there is a lot of room between skin and single cross-stick and I do
not brace my hand between it and the skin during playing.. just to hold
it in place on leg when not playing.. when I am playing the cross-stick
is not (º) but more like (/) with my hand in the upper left area of that
little picture, therefore the cross-stick really isn't in the way..
Thats it for me anyway.. like the bodhran talk.. later..
