9 [This video](http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMTMyOTc3Nzcy.html) was recorded some
10 time in December 2009. I had just learned how to [tap with both hands on the
11 Chapman Stick](/posts/2009-07-01-chapman_stick.html) when I was contacted by
12 representatives of the Chinese video portal [Youku.com](http://youku.com). They
13 asked me to provide them with a quick video of myself showing off the peculiar
14 instrument I told them I had just learned to play.

16 Later the video was to be tacked on to [footage that was recorded some days
17 earlier with the Youku team](http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMTMzMDA1MDU2.html).
18 All together this was supposed to be my entry for the voting to join the show
19 全家都来赛 (the official English name is the silly *"Super Family"*).

21 As the show's purpose is to present talented families, I asked Jackie to play
22 the drums while I would cover bass, chords and vocals of Michael Jackson's
23 *Billie Jean*. The result [can be seen
