It was going to happen spooner or later.

I have needed to record an in-depth video about playing spoons for a long time now. I’m asked on a consistent basis if I have a DVD, but due to lack of funding I have not been able to accomplish this goal. I’ve constantly looked for other spoon players and have found that folks playing spoons in this style is few and far between. Because of this, there is not any information available about advanced spoon playing to be found. To those seeking to learn the art form, this can be frustrating and discouraging.

Reality has been setting in. I’ve been playing spoons for years now as my primary source of income, and my joints feel it. I want to complete this goal before it is too late for me todo so,  and leave a way for others to learn a bit easier. If ever I do lay my spoons down to rest, I’d love for others to have a place to go watch and hopefully learn.....

---- The chapters I wish to include in the DVD are as follows: ---

  • who I am, how I started playing, and how it felt to learn
  • a visual history of spoon playing and idiophonic percussion
  • a video montage and discussion of spoon players from around the world
  • discussion about types of spoons and the physics of
  • guidance about types of grip tape and about “grease”
  • a conversation about grip
  • demonstrations of all the basic “moves”
  • music videos demonstrating spoon playing techniques where I am accompanied by some of my fabulous musical friends

Those donating $5 or more will receive a SPOON LADY bumper sticker.

Those donating $20 or more will receive a copy of the DVD upon completion.

PLEASE, send me your shipping address to receive these gifts.


Thank you for your help with making this a reality. I am hoping to be completed with the video by St. Patrick’s day 2015. I will keep posting updates as the filming is happening, and I love ideas and feedback. I would love to hear about what you would like to learn about, and who you would like to see playing along with me.

THANK YOU - Abby the Spoon Lady
