Yankee Doodle Rhythm Sticks

Here’s how to play Yankee Doodle on the Boomwhackers.

Boomwhackers are long hollow tubes of different colors that make up a scale, and in this video we use them to play Yankee Doodle.

You’ll want to use the tubes for CDE and F, and then GA and B with Octavator Caps on them.

The notes in the song are:


By Color

Red Red Orange Yellow – Red Yellow Orange Teal
Red Red Orange Yellow – Red Pink
Red Red Orange Yellow – Green Yellow Orange Red
Pink Teal Purple – Pink Red Red


Yankee Doodle went to town a
riding on a pony
stuck a feather in his cap and
called it macaroni.
