The Blues Playground is two blues musical instruments in one. First, it’s a collection of common percussion instruments played using a hand-held paddle that resembles the shape of a tambourine. You can play with the beat or add accents to spice up the song. The Blues Playground has a second mode that steps through a typical blues chord sequence one beat at a time. The Chords Mode can be used as the musical foundation of your own blues song — just add lyrics. If you can tap to a beat, you can play the blues!
