weepiper Tambourines and shaky eggs at sessions (46) RE: Tambourines and shaky eggs at sessions 11 Sep 02

I quite like a well-used shaky egg. And to all the snotty people who think they and tambourines etc are only for kids, you just haven't heard it done properly. I think percussion on an otherwise unaccompanied song would be a mistake unless the singer specifically requests it. (I know a guy who accompanies himself on the bodhran when he sings) But in a big session with several tune players you'll usually be welcome... so long as you don't play a) really loudly b) out of time with everybody else c) when you've been asked not to. But the same applies for any session instrument.
