    Yesterday me and five of my friends traveled to see Adam Rapa. We spent almost five hours with him, and we got A LOT of useful info and good exercises to work on. Already looking forward to visit him again :-)

    Two nice Monettes:

    And I got to play the Tantra:

    He showed us how not to sit:

    Very cool! You're a fortunate guy to be able to visit and learn from him. I got to meet him once and talk for a few minutes, but I definitely did not get to try out the Tantra!

    Thanks for sharing,
    Kujo

    Thanks! Yes, they are really nice – it's real leather too ;-) And there, everyone have to take a look at my shoes.

    To be serious, a lesson with Adam is so worth the money, and I'm pretty sure a Skype lesson will be really nice too. He really knows what he is talking about, and everything is tried out, he's taking notes at his own practice sessions to really see what makes the best practice.

    Did you send a photo? Maybe that explains it....
    ... or maybe you sent a note to a "contact" on a web site, that is not a regular email account. Keep trying, or PM Jon Petter to get a contact.
