Tried the three triangle bits I mentioned in the last blog. The rythmic pattern bit was i think, for me, impossible as it stands - too hard to play fast offbeats with no or little context. The jangly bit is OK but not as dramatic as i hoped and the cut off decay really seemed to not work. The earlier parts of triangle soloing sound like someobody is randomly hitting triangles - which is exactly what it is. All in all I feel like it's not working very well, and I need to think either of ways to make it work, or have the courage to jetison the whole thing.
On the plus side, my triangle technique is vastly improved over the last hour and-a-half, I have discovered how to hold the string so that it doesn't swing around uncontrollably! This will help in any future efforts. Who knew you could actually get better at playing a triangle?
