Thread Name: Clapping along at trad sessions
Subject: RE: Clapping along at trad sessions
So, what about foot-tapping at sessions - not stomping, just something gentle to feel you're part of the music? I seem to hear it a lot at sessions, and sometimes it's hard to resist joining in.

Lots of people wouldn't initiate stomping or clapping, but they feel they can or should join in if others are going it. Personally, I rarely want to hear hand clapping when I'm listening to live music.
