    Hello everyone! I'm new to the UU forums and this is my very first Seasons of the Ukulele submission.

    Below camera level I'm using a Boss RC-1 loop station to loop some fingerpicking, then the percussive sounds on the body of my uke.

    Thanks to Del for hosting, what a great theme!

    Happy New Year to you, Graham ... hope you had a good holiday!

    Another song from me, Del, in which I do some percussive tap dancing! (Well, actually, I "borrowed" the tap dancing because I have never tap danced in my life ... it sort of fits, though!). Elmann did a great cover of this one for the 1930s Season, which reminded me that it has great rhythm ... unfortunately, I don't!

    Do you mean to say you aren't using it as a side table??? (Just off to have a listen.)

    Here's a 2007 Paul McCartney song. Percussion includes my wood-box-tam-thing, a shaker, clapping, and synth keyboard drum kit.

    Well, that is obviously the answer! And if you find you get tired of just resting your mug on it, you might discover that it has strange percussive properties!

    A while ago for percussion I ripped pages out of a telephone directory.
    Not a new idea... I saw it first on an acoustic version of Neon Bible
    by Arcade fire (the elevator version)
