Thread Name: Clapping along at trad sessions
Subject: RE: Clapping along at trad sessions
I'm an enthusiastic clapper, whooper and dancer so I'd better not come to anything you're all going to

On a serious note I try to keep all 3 to appropriate occasions(ie amplified music) and would be mortified if a musician appeared to be annoyed by it. I am pretty good at clapping in time and can even do the offbeat if required ;-)Admitedly it is annoying when people cant keep time

I do however fail to understand people who never even tap a foot or finger (or break a smile?)to music which is clearly rhythmic, joyful and uplifting....
