Oh well I think Syd could be an exceptionally strong percussionist. I have a little plastic box of his seeds that I use for training. He just loves to toss that up and down making it rattle and bang on whatever surface is nearest. In fact he is drawn to anything that will make noise from dropping anything on the tiled floor with a clash to ringing bells. I haven't yet noticed any real sense of rhythm which might be a bit of a handicap, but I guess it depends on what audience we pay to listen to them.
