A pair of claves is a very basic form of musical instrument. It is literally two wooden sticks around 15cm in length and between 2cm and 3cm in diameter. To play the claves simply follow these steps:

  1. Hold one clave in one hand.
  2. Hold other clave in other hand.
  3. Strike one clave with other.
  4. Pause.
  5. Repeat previous two steps until fulfilled.
