I now realize that what is wrong with my bamboo panflute is not that the instrument sucks, but it is that I don’t have the lung-power to play it.
So today I used an exercise machine I found in the house, and I, well, exercised. It’s an old elliptical, and it told me I had done 2 miles on it. I was completely exhausted. I rarely do any exercise. But after I was done, I tried playing my instrument. Guess what? It made perfect sound! I was amazed, but theres only one problem… How am I going to get the same results at the competition? The truth is, I have no idea… 😉
