I’m thinking about buying a djembe at some point myself, but there are tons from which to choose. Perhaps you can look up types of djembes before finding the one that suits you the most. That’s what I’m doing.

Best wishes.

give him all your money then,youll feel better for it

I’m almost 17, and I’ve been playing for almost 10 years. From my experience I can tell you, you’ll most likely have problems with some tricky things the first year, but once you get to know the rythms and know how they sound together, you can start playing solo’s and invent your own solos! I’m pretty good with the feeling and rythms but I always say: 1 extra slap on a djembe that isn’t part of the rythm, is A SOLO! Good luck to you and have fun!

MingTheMerciful says:

i only just started but this is good.

superpwned80 says:

I was fortunate enough today to learn a bit about playing these drums..and fortunate enough to actually have a hands on lesson!! WOW I loved it..Now I’m so wanting to learn more…LOVE THEM!!

moss52 says:

Hows that 6 sounds. Thats 3. I know a Djembe Master from the Ivory coast who can actually play 6 or more sounds. According to this video he can doule that number cos he has two hands.Doh.

Now this is someone that I will call an EXPERT. Even when the sound quality is poor for the video, I can still ‘feel’ the rhythm of his drum.
