" I use a bit of tapping, I suppose it comes from the concertina" - Bobby Gardiner ……what is it?
In the latest "Canuinti cheoil" programme on TG4 wich features the county clare style, there is an interview with the great Bobby Gardiner.
He tell about some of the ornamentations he use, and he mention something called tapping. He is about to show it, when they cut the clip and show some playing instead (lovely playing of "the wind that shakes the barley", anyway)
But what is this called tapping (when I search here all I get of info is about foot-tapping, but this is something else is’nt it?)
The clip with Gardiner is about 5-6 minutes into the programme
