Hey Ms. Tambourine Gal

I’ve started playing tambourine in the band. Which, if my sources are to be believed, means that I am now Valerie from Josie and the Pussycats.

I also play a mean egg shaker.

At first it felt a little silly, but I think it does add a certain something-something. And by something-something, I mean “sound that sounds good.” I’m highly, musically technical.

Also, repetitively repetitive.

It’s always felt a little odd to be the only person in the band who doesn’t play an instrument. I mean, I know how to play the guitar… but we’re all a lot better off if there’s someone else who’s playing it. Someone who is definitely not me. I am a thoroughly mediocre guitarist. I write the songs and I sing them. I’m not exactly dead weight. But it does feel like a bit of a cop-out not to be playing something.

I really like playing the tambourine. I keep joking that they’ve created a monster, because I find more and more songs to add it to. I’ve requested that we find a song that features the cowbell. So far, there have been no takers.

We do, however, have an outro for our newest song. It’s all instrumental. I play the tambourine.

I do believe I will take the opportunity to really explore the room.
