Doumbek Advice, Tips Questions & Lessons / Training / Practice plan

Hello everyone!!  So, being very new in my darbuka journey, I have solely been working on getting a solid Doum, Tek, and ka.  I havenít really been following any classic rhythms, just creating my own slowly and focusing on my tonal output.  Now, much more comfortable with my timbre, it is time to move forward.

I am looking for advice on a practice regimen and I think I have two theories.  I am thinking of starting out with three classic rhythms - however I am wondering if it would be best to start with three rhythms of one time signature (be it 2/4, 4/4, 6/8, etc.), or start with a mix of three.  I am feeling the latter, perhaps the most three commonly used rhythms and build from there once those three are glued in my muscle memory, and then add an additional rhythm each time to keep moving forward.   However, I wanted to get some insight from the much more experienced players here on what you all found to work best for you in your learnings.

Much appreciated for any advice!!

Hello all!  I just wanted to check in to say hello and see if this forum was still relatively active.  I am a new darbuka player (long time percussionist), hoping to find a community to learn from and share with.  Thanks!
