Dem Bones of mine
These are fun instruments to learn and there is even a Rhythm Bones Society where you can learn all about players of bones and how to play them. There's lots of information out there. Folk music enthusiasts would be familiar with the popular old time band Carolina Chocolate Drops. They take the old time songs and really jazz them up good! Here is a video of Dom Flemons playing fast and wild bones here:
I am having a good time playing these things, although I must say my cat Jasper does not like them at all. I suspect once I master them a bit more, he will sleep through it all just as he does my other musical endeavors. Have you heard of the bones before?
