Working with the spirit of an instrument

Post#1 » Sat Jan 16, 2021 11:34 pm

So I've had this idea ruminating around in my head, and I'm curious to get other people's thoughts on this and whether they've done something similar themselves.

I've been planning on buying a conga drum and I've been thinking about how to go about working with the spirit of the drum. I know that Mongolian Shamans will often work with the spirit of a drum by giving it offerings and the like, and I've thought about doing something similar. The thing is that I don't plan on using it for trance work or anything like that, so I don't want to "train" the spirit in that way by journeying to talk with it. My current ideas are to give it some offerings, maybe regularly put out a glass of liquor and a candle at its foot and waiting 'til it speaks to me. Wanted to see if I can work with the spirit to help me learn the instrument better, and get inspiration from it.
Was even considering whether or not a used drum would better as it'd have that experience from having had someone else play it.

Any thoughts? Suggestions?
