Pen tapping involves making 3 different kinds of sounds using a pen (or pencil) and your hands. You can choose to use one or both hands.
The first sound represents the snare drum in a drum kit, and is made by tapping the tip of the pen against a table. The second sound is made by banging the pen on it's side against the table. This sound represents the high hat in a drum kit. The final sound is the bass sound, which is made by banging the side or bottom of your hand against the table, and the represents the kick drum.
