Well I couldn't find too many good live clips of Airto, but here's one of his most famous songs on youtube. He's certainly one of my favorite percussionists. I love watching him play surrounded by a mountain of instruments.
Well I still haven't been able to get a xylophone yet because I'm not making any money right now. I love how much Brian Wilson used xylophones and other related percussion. All Summer Long is one of the few radio songs that has xylophone in it. Can you think of another? Gone Daddy Gone I guess.
Anyway, I saw some percussion guy yesterday, and he was okay. He had congas, bongos, and a tambourine. I thought there was a little too much low end, but I'm kinda into noise. I probably would've played the tambourine a whole bunch and played slide whistle. I love music sometimes.
Hello, my name is Noah and I am a small time percussionist. I used to play guitar in a little known band called Dino Frenzy, but over time I have moved gradually toward percussion. Nowadays I'll pretty much pick up anything that makes noise. My instruments include tambourines, whistles, rain stick, guiro, and various homemade shakers.
Right now I'm saving up to buy a large wooden xylophone. Hopefully I'll get there soon. I've dreamed of owning one of those for a long time.
Anyway, if you like percussion, this is the place for you.
