I don’t know what it is about this week, but I thought I’d share another “hack.” My friend was over playing Maroon 5’s “Sunday Morning” on the ukulele, and I was providing him a percussive beat on my guitar as we were jamming. The guitar percussive stuff didn’t sound right – one of those times when one wishes one had an egg shaker.
So what to do? Make your own. Luckily, there was a painkiller pill bottle nearby, so while my friend was playing, I grabbed it, dumped out the pills that were inside, and filled it halfway with rice.
Homemade egg shaker. Went lovely with the music.
