For the bodhranistas

Forget the bodhran, get a cinder block. And who needs a fancy tipper when you can get a stick from a broken chair!

Re: For the bodhranistas

Wow… it’s like a bodhran, only worse!

Re: For the bodhranistas

It’s a bit annoying, isn’t it?

Re: For the bodhranistas

I guess it would be a great workout.

Re: For the bodhranistas

It would have worked if he’d actually been able to play it in time. The sound is not that different from a stepdancer’s feet on a hard floor.

Re: For the bodhranistas

Lol, yes annoying to some degree skreech, but so funny that he took it so seriously!

I’d say he’s in time Jack—- to my ears. But, it’s all just fun. This guy is a nut—- under the influence of a bottle of whiskey, a broken chair, and a cinder block.

Re: For the bodhranistas

"Like a bodhran, only worse!" That is class. I’m gonna tell him that.

Re: For the bodhranistas

Instead of beating on a drumhead, is he beating on a blockhead?

Re: For the bodhranistas

You should get him to try a beer bottle (empty of course) - Miller bottles make a good range of sounds :D

(BTW, that’s Catalan folk band El Pont d’Arcalís)

Re: For the bodhranistas

Sounds a bit like me on my "lump of wood" although obviously not as good.

The "lump of wood" I play can usually be found on a wash board or a set of ceilidh drums, but I play it like a bodhran.

Obviously I am the best in the world at it as the only other player is my son……

Re: For the bodhranistas

That must have been worth repeating!

Re: For the bodhranistas

All this rather emphasizes why there is the musician/ drummer thing. At least musicians have to make their noise on an actual MUSICAL INSTRUMENT.
Drummers can plainly make their noise on, well, anything…

Re: For the bodhranistas

reminds me of the days in middle-high school when at lunch someone would pull out a writting pen and drop a beat(make drumming patterns) on the lunch table with the pen(used as a hi-hat and snare) and their fists(used as the kick) and knuckles(as an alternative snare/hi-hat sound). Then someone would spit a flow(rap[improvised poetry]). Good times.

Re: For the bodhranistas

"Ok i’m bout’ to flow, somebody gimme a beat." *someone drops the beat* "Ok, ok, check…" *guy starts rapping, other people come over to listen, everybody starts rockin’ and jiggin’. Now it’s a big crowd. Principal comes outof nowhere. Everybody stops.* Principal: Keep it down over here… *Principal walks away. Everyone does the same thing… Principal comes back and takes away the beat-makers pen… Now the party’s over…* Haha, Yes good times :)

Re: For the bodhranistas

I suppose it was a graphical representation of what a bodhran felt like by the end of a night of hard tipping.
