Try Yourself With A Bass Djembe

Loading…
Rhythms, sound, technique…
Sometimes it's just good to play it simple. Time to take some rest with speed, sharp slaps and other killer licks.

It's easy to say, but not always easy to keep the playing in this area. Taking an instrument you would normally never choose for soloing can help. A bass djembe for example can reveal itself as a perfect partner for that task. You know you can't make it scream, so you won't try. Its potential power comes from this dark tone which doesn't need dense patterns to be heard.
