Hand Drum Technique: Bass, Tone, and Slap for Djembe and Conga
This is a must-have tutorial for anyone learning to make the 3 fundamental sounds (Bass, Tone, and Slap) on a djembe, conga, ashiko, ngoma, or timbal.
The video lesson includes proper body mechanics, hand positions, safety tips, and skill-building exercises. Noah demonstrates on a conga and a djembe, showing the differences between djembe and conga technique, thin skin vs. thick skin technique, and open vs. closed sounds.

This video is instructed by Noah Mosgofian.
Noah is a professional percussionist for hire, specializing in Cuban, Brazilian and African music based in Austin,TX.
Another excellent video by Noah. Very clear explanations and demos of basic essential hand techniques applicable to all hand drums. Highly recommended!
It really helps to have the over the shoulder view.
Would it be possible to have a printed drum chart to go along with the lessons?
Easy to order and download - no problems. But I have come to expect that from X8 - every product I have ordered, including drums, has been high quality, with prompt shipping.
