Dr. John Weaver likes his eggs shaken. He told me Sunday about the very cool rythmm maker eggs that you can hold in your strumming hand while playing your uke to add a little "shish shish shish" to your beat. Sounded a little crazy but fascinating so today I dropped by Mojo Music and spent a whole $2.75 for a plastic egg with some buckshot in it. I'll be darned, it works. There is room in your strumming hand for the egg and if you really get into it you can accompany yourself with the egg. Sounds nuts, probably is nuts, but it kind of fun. AND IT'S CHEAP.
