rearranging Matsuri patterns
- using "otsuri" to create tension and release

next level: arm swings

- L hand free to play variations
- 12 o'clock, 6 o'clock, and "don" as ways to change direction

next level: simultaneous arm swings, different planes

next level: "named phrases" (like Cronkite)
- creating freely (inspired by non-taiko rhythms, movements, etc)
- giving the phrase a name and trying to make it unique
- then practicing the phrase next to other phrases so you can use it in context

future level: long, connected patterns
- wouldn't it be cool if we could "tell a story" with one bachi and have that last through multiple phrases
