Ok, so here's the dilema- My group is having a heck of a time finding a drummer. We've been gigging without one longer than with, so gigs not the problem. The problem is, there are some songs where a backbeat would sound a lot better. I can do some tapping stuff with my bass, but it doesn't always cut it. So, I made a tambourine contraption , basically a tambourine on a seesaw that I can play with my foot. Yet......I haven't used it at a gig... because I'm chicken. I'm not chicken I can't do it (ex drummer....coordination good), I'm chicken it'll look stupid! My guitarist and singer are fine with it....doesn't care if I do it, whatever I'm comfortable with. So, what's your guys' opinion if you were to see a bass player tapping a tambourine with their foot onstage? Too cheesy? Or just another way to add to the music?
