Sesame Street: Evelyn Glennie Plays the Drums

Sesame Street is a Children's Television program that has had many fans since it started in the 1960's. In this short segment, Evelyn Glennie shows that you can play percussion on just about anything - including Oscar the Grouch's trash cans!

What non-instrument things have you played percussion on?
Were the sounds they made unusual or did the sounds remind you of something else?

I'll start - I like tapping on plastic surfaces such as chairs...when you play a multiple-bounce roll or fast double-stroke roll on most hard plastic surfaces, it can sound like rain falling into a bucket. I love the different sounds of rain :)
