The danso also spelled tanso is a Korean notched, end-blown vertical bamboo flute used in Korean folk music. It is traditionally made of bamboo , but since the 20th century it has also been made of plastic. The instrument is derived from the Chinese xiao and is used as an educational tool in Korean primary schools, much like the recorder is used in western nations. The flute has four finger holes and one thumb hole at the back. The playing range is two octaves, going from low G to high G. The lower sounds are made by just blowing, whereas the higher ones are made by difference in the strength of the blowing. The dan in the instrument's name means "short", and so refers to the notched, end-blown vertical bamboo flute.
It has a buzzing membrane that gives it a special timbre. It is used in court, aristocratic, and folk music , as well as in contemporary classical music , popular music , and film scores. The king ordered his caretaker of the sun to test whether this was good luck. The caretaker replied that a dead king who turned into a sea dragon, and two great warriors are giving a gift to protect Silla, and if the king would visit the sea, he would receive a priceless gift. The king soon sent a person to look for the gift. The person replied that a bamboo tree on the top of the island becomes two in the morning and one in the night. On the next day, the world shook and it rained and wind blew, and the world was thrown into darkness for a week.
It MAY be true that she will not marry him unless he converts. It's really cool to be able to connect with someone who shares all of those things with me. I had told him that if he hadn't changed jobs, that I wouldn't have left him but that our relationship would probably become irreparable. I honoured this request and did not contact her until after her exams finished. I used to be religious when I was a kid. I do know other doctors who have more balance but take a cold hard look at what your life will be like if your man is married to medicine.
