I jumped ahead of my model’s steps and went to creating a rhythmic ostinato. I saw my bodhrán sitting on my shelf and I just had to play it. Because my piece hasn’t evolved into a jig, there is no need for the fancy bodhrán rhythms. I merely used it like a bass and snare, whilst still sounding somewhat like a bodhrán.

For notation at this point, I will be using this key.

Here is the ostinato I came up with as well as the isolated recording (with processing).
