How to use an Egg Shaker and how can it help you when playing?

Before we begin, we must find out what is an Egg Shaker or also known as Ganzá:

It is a percussion instrument that emits its sound when shaken; its shape is similar to that of an egg (as its popular name indicates) and the sound
It emits is very similar to the maracas.

How is it made up?
It consists of two pieces either metallic or wood that are joined in half and inside contain seeds or small accounts that when impacted with the walls emit the peculiar sound.

Ways to play sounds with this instrument are varied, for example, hold it with your fingers thumb, index and middle and shake it from top to bottom which gives us a quick sound, or from side to side, which gives a little sound slower or take it with all the palm and while we stir you go opening and closing the palm, which results in a dry and more controllable sound.

He is a good companion of other instruments especially strings as he could
Be the guitar or the ukulele. To be able to play it at the same time as the ukulele what
ideal would be to hold it with the hand that makes the strum (right if it is right handed or
left if left handed) and when performing the strumming movement the Ganzá will do
blow

It gives us extra sound when it comes to playing and singing and as percussion helps us to mark the measures,

What does this mean?,

It means that if you think notyou have a good rhythm when playing, bring an egg Shaker could be a tool to help you and guide thewhen it comes to playing, so you don't get lost in the times of the songs

In addition, you are playing two instruments at the same time, that surprises more than one.

In the Ukulelería you can find Egg Shakers and others that play the
Ukulele a unique experience.

The sound is fascinating and therapeutic when using egg shakers. Any group in Guadalajara that meets to learn and practice more complicated rhythms?
