Project Description

We have shown you a whole bunch of techniques that give you different ways of getting interseting noises out of the spoons.

As a beginner it makes sense for you to choose one or two of these techniques and get practicing along to something you like - or the examples in the folk, country, hip hop and techno lessons in the course.

We covered 1/4 note, 1/8th notes, 1/16th notes, double hits, playing with our hands only, triplets, rakes all sorts of stuff.

Choose two or three of these techniques and string them together in a rhythm. Video or record yourself playing and post it back here so we can see what youare up to. It gives me a chance to help with technique and a chance for you to show off your new skills :)
