The Only One - Aka Peeping Through Your Eyelashes (New Song) Outside Ely Cathedral

http://bemuzic.bandcamp.com/

This was my first time busking in Ely. Really enjoyed it...beautiful surroundings, and the people were very friendly and interested in my home made instruments : -) Will definitely be going back.
I'm playing my 3 string Cohiba CBG. For more info about it check out this video http://www.cigarboxnation.com/video/cohiba-3-string-fretted-cigar-box-guitar-with-flatpup

LYRICS:

The Only One (aka Peeping Through Your Eyelashes)

Did you peep through your eyelashes
when told to pray at school?
Did you often find yourself
questioning the rules?
Please tell me,
yeah tell me,
I wasn't the only one.

Do you sometimes feel like
the string on a balloon?
Drifting aimlessly
wherever the wind takes you?
Please tell me,
yeah tell me,
I'm not the only one.

These days it always seems
I'm running out of time,
but I keep singing my song
louder every day.

In this ever changing world
I need you to be the same.
Your glass is not half empty
so talk to me again,
and tell me,
yeah tell me,
I'm the only one..

No I'm not playing anything with my foot. I looped that sound (it's actually some paperclips being shaken..all very high tech!) If I didn't have a bad back I would probably go for a tambourine on my foot. Lots of different ways to play go about it https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=tambourine+with+foot&es_sm=12...

   Ask 407bug for drum/percussion advice, he has made all sorts of contraptions : -)

In this video are you playing a tambourine with your foot? If so how does one play the tambourine with ones feet/ Thanks :)
