The basic thing I learned took me 3-4 months and the points with basic things were to keep focus and getting the our body right for playing and all these basis, I took me 3-4 months to get good in and after that the real learning start with learning Darbuka and all those instruments, so in total it took 14-16 months to complete understand thing, but one thing is sure that learning never stops.

Practice can make perfect only when we practice with and intensity, if we practice like time pass which is very common for many people then I suppose we are not going to get even near 50% of perfect. I would say we must practice with determination but also we should understand what to practice to make our self-better. Does anyone here know what should we practice? As most people think practice means just playing but thatís far from the reality.

I am not any master in this but I have hobby of doing it, I tried to build one myself by watching certain videos on Youtube, I was not exactly successful but still I made a very decent one and it took around 4-5 months.

Doumbek, Darbuka Lovers / Re: Remo Darbuka or Pearl Darbuka?

I like Pearl much more as I have that only and I find it very attractive, I have used Remo one too and I donít think anyone can hate that but at the same time, itís all about preference and for me Pearl is very cool so I go with that only.

Some people get affected by what happens in their life, but there are some who are very calm and it does not make much different to them whatever happens around them. I usually play very fast when I am angry or in bad mood, but I wonít call it bad just not the usual self.

It is all according to wish because every instrument is different from other and you canít really be comparing them, as it will not help you learn others much, but yes there are certain instruments which are connect but only few. So do whatever you like first and what does your instructor says?

Darbuka Teachers & Lessons / Re: Where to find a good teacher?

There are hardly any place to properly learn these, itís like these amazing instruments are losing their worth and there is no one interested in teaching the new generation this art, itís really sad to see it happening, so we have to learn mostly from online, but just a question from others whether Youtube is good for learning or not?

Yes, there are many women Darbuka players, but usually if you look at complete band then you often find them playing a supportive kind of role and thatís why we see more women playing Oud instead of Darbuka, but itís obviously it can be different.

Oud Lovers / Re: How come there are so few women oud players?

Sorry, but I donít see any real stats by which one can say this, so how do you say there are few women players? Even if there are less international players then also you canít say this because overall there are many women players, so I ask you again to provide the reason for saying this.

Oud Lovers / Re: Why do you guys love the oud?

I like every musical instrument as Music is my life and whether itís Oud, Kawala, Darbuka or anything I love playing it and whenever I get free time thatís the only thing I do, itís not just my hobby but addiction that I can never overcome.

My grandfather was a decent Darbuka player and thatís I find it so interesting, but I feel that almost 90% youngsters are simply not interested in it, so I feel like a lone person and even learning for me was so difficult, so why is so less interest in it? Especially youngsters.

I have done a lot of traveling to various countries but very few had anything related to musical instruments especially Darbuka, as per rest there was just nothing, so I am sad that why is it restricted to just few countries? I strong feel itís an art that needs to get spread! What do you think?
