Okay, Gayle - I'll stand behind you and whack your coconuts...
Great! I've been working on a new piece entitled "Rhapsody on a Theme for Whacked Coconut Bra with Bamboo and Spoons". It's a duo!!
Fantastic! How do you use the spoons? I haven't played
with those before
Ah, I see. Well if you follow these steps, you will be fine. Don't follow the steps and you are risking a sprained thumb
1. Retrieve spoon from silverware tray in drawer next to sink. Preferably, clean.
2. Grasp spoon by handle (the long, thin flat part; not the half round spoony part
3. With the rounded side of spoony part, whack coconut bra with firm, quick movements with the accent on the "up" part of the movement. This prevents the spoon from being in contact with the coconut for too long, thus dulling the resonance.
4. Repeat as necessary.
Just let me know if you need any help. It can be hard to visualize.
