Video dvd by David Holt

Sample video clip...

David Holt is a Grammy award winner and multi-instrumentalist who comes from a background where bone playing is a family tradition. In this unique and highly entertaining video he teaches you to make complex rhythms using the simplest materials, some right out of your kitchen drawer. It is fun, and anyone can do it - no music lessons, note-reading or expensive instruments are needed to join in with the band!

David Holt's infectious enthusiasm and clear instructions will have you playing fascinating rhythms in no time. You will develop coordination, physical dexterity, and gain a deeper understanding of traditional American music.

You will also discover the proper way to play rolls, accents, fills, plus a variety of sounds on these instruments. You can quickly learn the basics of percussion so you can contribute to jam sessions and other musical events.

You don't even need an instrument! In addition to learning to play metal and wooden spoons, bones, washboard, and even the paper bag, David passes along the traditional art of hambone, where you will learn to use nothing but your own body to create fabulous sounds and rhythms. With just a little practice you will master the series of moves that have been handed down for generations. In no time at all you will create your own show-stopping routines and entertain your family and friends for many years to come.

Bones Instruction
David Holt is gifted at teaching folk instruments at the beginning level. Although the section on bones runs only around seven minutes, the instruction is clear and precise so you should get a lot out of it.

What's more, this might be the only video that demonstrates how to play bones using natural ox rib instruments that look like they were last night's dinner!

Why Choose this Video?
If you want a "quick-start" way to learn how to play the bones from a top-notch teacher who also shows you how to play 3 other essential old-time traditional folk instruments (spoons, washboard, hambone) plus a paper bag - that's a total of 5 instruments...all recorded on a single budget-priced DVD that's an excellent value, then this video is for you.
