a pair of bongos. While I don't plan on becoming a bongo player, I am messing around with them a little bit. here's a helpful lesson I found.
Totally agree with Mike $ - I heard a music store employee playing a LP Mini-bongo while I was on a trip to Guam. He sounded fantastic, like he was playing congas! Bought one when I got home & practiced via YouTube lessons. Even after several months of trying, I sounded nothing like the guy at the music store. Ended up giving them to Goodwill.I've heard a few guys who are fantastic on the bongos. Most people i've heard play bongos like crap though. I try to stay away from them, and don't keep them around the house because I figure a good bongo player will bring their bongos with them. I play them like crap.
Great rendition and a delightful video. It all went well with my cider doughnut and coffee.i'm not sure anyone needs to be a musically percussive superhero... and hey, felt good and is maybe just a 1/2 step up from naked palms on a coffee table
Thanks all! Yesterday i couldn't even spell "percussionist" so I wrote "drummer".
