Title: Darbuka/doumbek stroke lesson
Post by: Loona on April 08, 2015, 07:22:41 AM
I thought I'd contribute to the forums with something useful, as I see others are doing it too :)

This video explains really well how to do a split finger double stroke roll the correct way:

What type of drum is this? I can't see it very well in the video, but I really like the way it sounds. Must be Turkish, but I'm not sure.

Music Fan@ it definitely looks Turkish, as you can clearly see in the sound. Thank you so much Loona for providing such a fine video, itís always fascinating watching split finger technique been used, as we rare see that so thatís why itís so exciting watching this.

I have face the same issue with the video, as itís really tough to figure out what type of drum it actually is but I do agree with Abdul Raheem, it looks more like Turkish, but itís very hard to be entirely sure about this so if you can yourself tell us, it would be great!
