Hearing the echo
Playing a Yamabushi conch is not easy. It takes time to train your lip muscles and lungs (and stomach!) to get the right tones at the right times, and even after years of practice you don’t always get the intended sound.
However, there is one thing you can quite easily control; your timing.
The really cool part about the conch is not the sound that comes out, but rather the sound that is echoed back to you. So much so, it’s almost as if you play it to get that echo.
Yet if your timing is a bit too quick, if you are hurried, in other words, you completely miss that echo.
Keep the echo in mind. The timing will follow.
