I made my tambourine quack like a duck!

Post by amanise »

... will surely be the title of my next intergalactic platinum seller.

It did! It quacks! Take one tambourine shake, stick it in a loop at 4 beats to the bar. Now apply a BL20 Flanger in cross 0 mode with 180 degree swoosh thing on - and its open season!

I think I like it... can't decide. The question is, will they like it on Alpha Centauri?

I think this might be one of those instances where one is forced to ask, "just because you can, does it mean you should?"

A duck walks into a music store and picks out a tambourine. “How do you want to pay?” Asks the clerk. “Put it on my bill . .. .

Sorry.

But then a duck that plays tambourine could be fun too.

So this guy runs up to me and screams DUCK!

I turn around and say: Where?

Just as the tambourine he had flung whacked me in the back of the head!

A duck walks into a bar (spoiling a perfectly good secondary punchline) and the barman says, "Waddle it be?"

.... not realising he was actually talking to the great "Duck Tambo" - legendary avian jazz tambourinist and headline act for that evening. He was later fired for not treating Duck in compliance with the terms of his rather exacting rider.

I once did sound for an electro-folk band whose percussionist had contrived, using a small contact mic, to put his spoons through a wah-wah pedal.

It sounded exactly like spoons going through a wah-wah pedal.

Sounds like the sort of thing my cousins fella would do - he was European spoons champion apparently. I never even knew there was a contest!
