  • Thanks John your video brought back fond memories of my sister-in-law’s dad. May he R I P, He played the spoons beautifully and would entertain us at family gatherings. He was a WW 2 infantry veteran and he loved to tell told how he would keep his buddies entertained during their breaks which weren’t many. He also played the harmonica quite well.

    Don’t try this at home if you’re eating soup. Trust me; I’m speaking from experience!

    I studied percussion as a music ed major (one of my majors), and this is something I was NEVER exposed to. Maybe folk-type instrumentation is not considered to be “legitimate,” which would be funny considering that we played quite a few John Cage pieces that involved such legitimate instruments as rolled-up newspapers, a deck of cards, brooms, etc…all good fun and quite interesting to use everyday household items as instruments.

    I’m inspired by this video…going to have to do a little research and see if I can pick up a few skills!
