I think this is the right place for this. Maybe TAO but I need answers ASAP. I am creating a psych experiment for my honors thesis that has to do with themes, actions, and how children use them. One of the actions is twisting; theme, music. I remember as a child a wooden instrument with metal mesh that was scraped in a twisting action at school. For the life of me I can't find the name. Anyone know? Or any other musical twisting actions? Help me creative mammas!

My guess is I have a tad bit more experience with instruments then you do.

Not bragging or anything, but I've been studying music and instruments since before I could remember.

P.S. You got a response in the other posting too.

Cymbals are sometimes scraped too with a triangle beater or drumstick. Used to be a percussionist and saw this in a lot of music.

Not sure if this counts as scraping but there is a technique called a finger roll done with a tambourine that you esentially scrape it lightle with a finger to make the shaking sound.
