  REGARDING           Bardic

If so, do you have specific
exercise you want to run through?  For example, Alexander Yevsha of the
Carolingian Storyteller's Guild suggested an exercise where each teller
receives the barebones outline of a story and each tells it in a persona
appropriate manner.

This seems like an interesting idea.  

I have been in the SCA for many years, and have just recently started doing
bardic.  Typically the only thing I hear people say about  becoming better in
bardic (and all arts, for that matter) is "Criticism - Here is what you are
doing wrong" and the only way to improve is "Practice".

Does anyone else have any other exercises/techniques/ideas of ways to improve
bardic other than the usual (practice, use a recording device, preform in
front of an audience, listen to critisim).

(I myself work on singing and would particularly like to hear ideas on that,
but I am also interested in ideas for other bardic forms.)
