Wordless/ful Wednesday

Hello everyone! Sorry I haven't posted for a few months. Things have been really busy and crazy. But I am back and very happy to be posting again! Hope you are all doing well! Let's see if you can guess this next instrument...



What Musical Instrument Am I?







Answer to last Wordless/ful Wednesday:

Yes, you all guessed this right! The accoridon! The accordion, made in Berlin in 1822, is a hand held free-reed aerophone instrument (meaning the sound is produced by air pushing past a vibrating reed). An accordion is played by compressing and expanding a bellows, and pressing keys which cause the valves to open. The accordion is played in Europe, North America, and South America. The accordion is mainly played in folk, jazz, and classical music. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accordion)


Below is an example of what an accordion sounds like:

Now listen while I play, play, play, my green tambourine.

Welcome back! And thanks for the accordion link just in time as I'm planning "A" week with my girl!

I'd say that's a handy-shaped tambourine...
