Did you ever play a washboard? If you haven't, you've got
some real fun ahead of you, particularly if you can use your
washboard with other instruments as part of an orchestra. Lots
of orchestras that play over the radio and for dancing have
washboard players nowadays.

You can use any washboard of any size—from the miniature
boards to the regular-sized ones. Different boards make differ-
ent tones according to size and the material of which they are
made. There are glass boards as well as metal ones.

To play the board you need five thimbles—one for the thumb
and each finger of the right hand. Put the thimbles on and then
run them up and down over the ridges on the board. You can
make any rhythm you want to and can get some major musical
(?) effects.
