Frame Drum Sound & Videos / Start Frame drumming !
« on: December 14, 2015, 08:27:59 AM »
Frame drums are portable, relatively inexpensive, very versatile, and they can be played in situations where many instruments would never work (in your apartment, or behind the wheel stuck in traffic at rush hour, perhaps).
Why late to start learning frame drum? Take a look and start....  ;D

Hi all,

I have a few question regarding Arabic and Turkish Oud. What's the difference between "Arabic" and "Turkish" tuning? Can I tune my Arabic oud to Turkish tuning? Can I tune my Turkish oud to Arabic Tuning?

Thanks in advance  :)

 I have determined to buy my first doumbek or darbuka, but there are so many types like aluminum, copper, brass, nickel-plated, ceramic & so on to choose from, so I'm not sure which one to get.
Which doumbek would you recommend for a first time buyer? Which will be the best for me?
Please answer.

Riq, Mazhar, bendir, Tar... Lover / How to play an open dum on a riq!
« on: December 13, 2015, 12:03:10 PM »
Hi all,
As I am a Riq lover and trying to learn how to play an open dum on a riq while playing in closed position. I can see many middle eastern riq players doing that very smoothly : while playing in closed position they unhand the right hand, holding the riq only with the left hand to play a loud dum and then grab the riq again back to the closed position. I can do that, but I have some difficulties holding the riq well balanced especially when I have to play a left hand tek before my right hand hits the skin again.
I would appreciate any trick or piece of advice on how to achieve that

Thanks in advance.
