You’ve seen kids with ’em, spinning these weird three sided toys around everywhere they go and they’ve even made it into the news as frustrated elementary and junior high school teachers confiscate them left and right. They’re called ‘fidget spinners,’ and they’re meant to help kids with anxiety, autism, ADD or ADHD focus; however, YouTuber Davie504 has found another use for these fun little contraptions and y’all, I can’t believe we’ve never thought of this!
Fun Fact: A fidget spinner is a type of stress-relieving toy. A basic fidget spinner consists of a bearing in the center of a design made from any of a variety of materials including brass, stainless steel, titanium, copper and plastic.
In a viral video that went out last week, Davie504 answers the question as to whether or not you can actually use the fidget spinner to play bass or guitar with an awesome take on “Misirlou,” originally a popular Eastern Mediterranean folk song turned into high octane surf rock classic by Dick Dale in 1962. If you’re a bass player that’s ever had a hard time nailing that tricky rhythm “Misirlou” has become known for, never fear: Davie504’s gotcha covered, and it’s every bit as awesome as you’d expect. Happy spinning!
