All of these things can kill a bardic circle. So now how do we find a
solution to them? The topic under discussion was how to prevent
drummers from killing a bardic circle. It's a valid topic and one
dear to my heart. I love to drum. I love to sing. I love to tell a
tall tale or two. How can we do it ALL at the same circle? It has
been done successfully and there should be a place for all in the circle.

There you go. Take turns. An excellent idea. That way I don't have to
choose one or the other. I can have my cake and eat it too. <gr>

Nope, don't want to run the drummers off because I want to drum.
Don't want to run the singers off because I want to sing and listen
to others sing. Don't want to run off . . . you got the picture.
