Harmonica Holder

I am a solo artist. For live shows, how could I create a good bass drum sound/percussion accompaniment?

I have an acoustic guitar, I do vocals, and I have a harmonica holder so I can solo in between verses. I sometimes have a friend play hand drums or something for some steady percussion. However, if I'm doing a solo show I was wondering if I could do something myself to make percussion accompaniment and kinda become a one man band. I've tried the bass pedal against a guitar case and that works okay, but I was wondering about other suggestions. Could I build something simple or use a household device or something?

Hah, I've never heard of the kick pedal/guitar case thing before, that's quite clever :D

You can try a few things:
- Get a tambourine without a skin (one of those durable plastic ones, preferably half-moon shaped). Put it on the floor. Put your foot on it so your heel is on one side (the flat side if it's a crescent tambourine) and your toe is on the opposite side. Now rock your foot back and forth so you basically slam the tambourine into the floor on the beat. I saw this done on an episode of CSI that started with these two buskers in a subway station, so if you don't quite understand what I mean, maybe look up the episode.
- Make a stompbox. I don't mean like a guitar effects pedal; I mean a box you stomp on. There's tutorials online that show you how to make them; it basically comes down to taping a $2 electrical component to a plank and wiring it to a cable. You then plug this into an amp to get a truly foot-stompin' sound. :)
- Look to drummers for inspiration. I think the guy from Def Leppard used a kick pedal on a cowbell. You could also pedal a hihat, maybe in conjunction with a stompbox or other thumpy sound.
- If you're a strummy, energetic player, you could try something like taping a shaker (homemade or otherwise) to the headstock of your guitar and kinda shake it to the beat when you're playing intense parts. Alternatively, you could tie something like that to your ankles or the wrist of your right hand. Here in South Africa, traditional musicians make shaker bracelets and anklets by poking holes in metal bottle caps and stringing them together on a wire - try that. It's really effective if you make two or three anklets and wear them on the same leg so they smash into each other when you stomp.
