How To Play The WashboardPlaying a washboard is easy. Anyone can do it, but few are masters! You will need a musical washboard and a striker, such as a spoon or metal stick. Run the striker along the metal ridges of the washboard. Try it at different speeds and strengths. You will hear the clickity clack of that washboard percussion!
Slap the metal to break up the beat with loud clacks! Use the wood frame as another interesting sound to explore. Also, a cow bell makes great back up!
