Idiophones are instruments that produce music and sound from the substance of the instrument itself. Some Irish goat bones are made from ribs of Irish goats or sheep. Similar styles of playing bones, wood and even stone are found all over the world stretching from South India to Mongolia, to the six Celtic regions of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, England, Bretagne, France and Asturias, Spain. Such as in playing Irish goat bones, a ll of the bone players play their instruments using a similar technique, mechanically speaking, yet the finger positioning/manipulation and materials used varies from region to region. To hold and play the Irish goat bones, two Irish goat bones are cradled in one hand and balanced vertically while the forearm and hand produce a rotating and waving motion, allowing the Irish goat bones to pendulum and strike each other producing sound.
