Carrying some Percussion Instruments around with you is always a good idea. You never know when you might want to use it, so it’s good to have a few things with you. A Tamborine is pretty essential and should be part of a drummers armoury. Shakers, maraca or a cabasa are are fun and can help the groove when you’re in the studio or playing live.
It doesn’t have to cost a fortune and they’re generally pretty easy to play.
Check out how to play a Cabasa and Maraca below.
