Gentle Djembe for Beginners, Volume 3 Playing in 6/8 Time (Beginning)

with Alan Dworsky

Lets face it: playing djembe as its traditionally played can be really hard on your hands. The Gentle Djembe for Beginners series is the only set of DVDs for beginning hand drummers - especially adult beginners - who want to experience the joys of playing djembe while going easy on their hands. It was created by Alan Dworsky, the best-selling author of "How to Play Djembe" and two-time winner of DRUM Magazines readers poll for "Best Percussion Method Book." Each of the step-by-step lessons on Volume 3 starts like a private lesson and ends with Alans entire class playing the rhythm, so you also get a sense of what its like to play in a group. West African rhythms--including kpegisu and dunumba - are adapted to a Gentle Djembe style, so that you can play safely and comfortably no matter what your age. Each lesson also has a matching play-along track, and the DVD contains a PDF file with charts of all the patterns, so the the video is a complete learning tool. Shot in gorgeous wide-screen format and endorsed by Arthur Hull as "the most non-intimidating way for beginning beginners to get started."

In Volume 3, youll enter the polyrhythmic world of 6/8 time, while still going easy on your hands. Youll learn patterns adapted from powerful West African rhythms--including kpegisu and dunumba - as well as one of the most popular 6/8 bell patterns. Like the first two Gentle Djembe videos, Volume 3 provides clear, step-by-step instruction with the feel of private lessons. And in addition to separate play-along tracks, this DVD includes a PDF file with charts of all the patterns.
