Hi,
I'm David, 19, from France. I've always listened to arabic music since my dad is lebanese, but never had the chance to practice.
I finally got myself a darbuka and really want to learn and to practice!!!

Hello,

I finally got my first darbuka last week, in a little store in the Jerusalem market
(I know it's not the best place to find a good one, but I thought I'd find an OK one for a good price...)
So I started listening to classes on Youtube, but I got a problem very fast:
Here for example, I guess his left hand hits the rim with fingers 4-5 and the back of the 1... but when I do it, the sound isn't quite  as powerful, and we barely hear it! 
Is there a technique that I didn't get?
Could it be a problem with my rim that would be too thick? Or do I just have to change a little bit the screws maybe??

thanks for your help !
