Washboards are Cool!!

by Moss

After having watched the SF Jug Band Fest last weekend at the Golden Gate Park Bandshell, I decided that I should be playing the washboard. I bought a washboard a few years back with the intention of turning it into an "instrument" but used it instead for actual washing (call me crazy!!). So, the other day I pulled out the old washboard from storage, attached a zildjian splash cymbal, a bell-hop bell, and two bike horns...the makings of a fine "instrument." I am currently bashing away...with the goal of being the best washboard player this side of the Ozark Mountains. Soon I will add photos of my new creation...and of other cool washboards I have googled...but for now be patient, grasshopper. Peace out!!
