* percussion -- shakers, cabasa, doumbek, tabla, tambourine, bongos, congas, roto-toms, talking drums, wood blocks -- COW BELL!
* Nashville tuned guitar: remove lower three strings (E A D) and replace with lighter gauge tuned an octave higher => chimey guitar
* synthesizer pad patches
* mando or banjo or uke
* clapping, stomping
* slide guitar of some sort
