I have just got myself a new dizi (the chinese flute).
This is my second dizi in C scales. My first D scales dizi was bought about 2 years ago when I started to learn dizi.
For your information, the following picture shows the dimo (flute membrane) sticking on one of the holes so that the dizi will sound nicer.
I used to be very jealous when seeing Sean (used to be my ex-teacher) carrying so many dizi’s in his bag because he looks very pro. Okay lah he doesn’t “look” pro, he IS the pro.
I have always wanted to be able to have all kinds of dizi. So now I got myself a very pro dizi as well. According to my teacher, this is the best of the best. Although it’s a little bit expensive to pay RM350 for a bamboo stick, but the Chinese always say “in order to do the work well, one must sharpen the tool first”. No regret at all buying it.
I have totally no idea how to read the words. But isn’t it looks cool?
There is still a long long way to go before I can become a good dizi player. The long way I’m talking about is not just 6 or 7 months, it could take up to 6 or 7 years! But “million meters skyscraper is also built from ground”, at least I’ve taken another step by getting myself a better dizi.
I can see more to come.
