"When I woke up this morning" - original blues classics (5)

"Washboard" Sam (1910 - 1966) - "Easy Ridin' Mama". Gravação de 4 de Maio de 1937
"The washboard and frottoir are used as a percussion instrument, employing the ribbed metal surface of the cleaning device as a rhythm instrument.
As traditionally used in
jazz, cajun, skiffle, jug band, and old time music, the washboard remained in its wooden frame and is played primarily by tapping and, but also scraping, the washboard with thimbles. Often the washboard has additional traps, such as a wood block, a cowbell, and even small cymbals." - in Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washboard
