Posted: Tuesday, October 12, 2010 in Info & Education

When playing a didgeridoo it is inevitable that a fair amount of moisture (dribble) is going to get on the inside. Most brass wind instruments have a “spit valve” to deal with this. With the didgeridoo, this valve is the end/bottom. If you play for long enough, you may see some dribble come out the end – don’t panic, this is normal :).

So do you need to clean the inside? Read the rest of this entry »

How to write didgeridoo notation or sheet music

Posted: Thursday, September 30, 2010 in Info & Education

Sheet music for didgeridoo? Not something that exists yet as a standard amongst didgeridoo players. This is probably due to the didgeridoo being so unique to the individual. In fact it’s one of the beautiful things about the instrument, there are no rules.

Having said that, it is possible to write down your didgeridoo sounds and rhythms and it comes in really handy when trying to communicate your favorite rhythms to others. We used this technique in the Playing the Didgeridoo instructional CD series to write all of the rhythms taught, in the booklets provided.

Here is a guide to get you going. Feel free to add your own flavor to it or customize it to your needs. Read the rest of this entry »

We’ve asked three of the best drum and didge players, Mark Hoffman from eMDee, Tom Fronza from Analogue Birds and Si from Wild Marmalade what makes a good didge ‘n drum outfit.

What are your best tips for playing didge along with a drummer? Read the rest of this entry »
