YouTube Preview ImageHow To Play The Spoons in Ten Minutes

At different points in my life, I have played guitar, piano, bass, harp and the drums. I am horrible at all of these now (I have this terrible habit of not practicing), but the one “talent” I can claim is that I’m pretty good at the spoons. I don’t whip ‘em out often, but when I do, watch out! That said, here is a little tutorial taught by some random dude. Enjoy!
