A few years ago, I saw a 10-year-old girl flipping her cup to this song, and I have to admit I was blown away by how well she was doing it. Last month when I found the video for Anna Kendrick's pop song "When I'm Gone" and connected it to the cup routine I'd seen some years before, I suddenly understood why this video has 300 million views - it takes dozens of views to learn how to do that cup jive!
I put in my dozens of views - but it wasn't to learn the cup trick. I was, at first, freeform jamming along on the kalimba. But slowly, the more I played with this song, the more my playing settled down into a repeatable part. And that's what I share with you here.
