    Otherwise known as the Didgeridoo
    Just getting into this and the culture that surrounds it. Just getting into the circular breathing
    It was supposed to have been played around the camp fire, One of the aboriginals told a story and the didge player would play the didgeridoo. The sounds are supposed to imiate the sounds of the wilderness or bush and so you will hear amimal sounds, birds, dingos howling etc

    Anyone else play the didge

    A beautiful girl playing one in france can be seen here

    I had a go once when we visited Glastonbury many years ago. There was someone selling them in the town, I think he made them too.
    Anyway, I made a fool of myself in front of about 20 people, its not as easy as you think.

    A few years ago I was in Central Park in New York with Gwen and visited the John Lennon memorial. Another couple turned up and he whipped out his didgeridoo, played for a couple of minutes and then they toddled off again without speaking.
    Strange.

    well, there are worse things to whip out than a didge ::bigsmile:

    was lucky in being given a beautiful old one a few years ago, but try as i might just can't get the hang of the circular breathing thats needed to play it..
    i do make noises somewhat like an elephant farting i've been told, but i shall keep trying and just maybe one day..............
    does anyone give lessons?

    rather fancy getting a waisted appalachian dulcimer or a hang drum, although they (hang) are massively expensive and there's a waiting list for a genuine one..:frowny:

    My ex, always told me to never go to her house on a Friday night as that's the night usually played her banjo, strangely enough I never saw the instrument or heard her play it, never did figure that one out :confused:
