How to Play a Conga Drum Instrument?
Playing an instrument, such as a conga drum, is fun whether you are musically inclined or not. Aside from that, conga drums are also easy to play. Beginners who would like to try playing conga drums won’t have a hard time learning it, because it is easier to pick up than most other instruments. You can easily become a conga master through constant practice and listening to other conga drum players, or listening to the radio. If you want to learn how to play the conga drum, here are some helpful tips for you. • Try to play a simple beat. When you are just a beginner, don’t expect too much from yourself by trying complex beats. You’re better off starting with simple beats and constantly practicing those beats. If you are playing with one conga drum, use your palm and strike the center of the drum firmly, while leaving it on the surface of the drum so that a bass tone will be produced. For two or more congas, bass notes can be produced on other conga drums with a higher pitch. • To produce different tones, experiment with different techniques. Tones which can be played in conga drums include bass tones, open tones, slap, heel-toes, muted slap and rim shots. Once you have learned these different tones, they can be perfect additions to your talent. • Try playing the open tone. To play the open tone, you need to strike the conga drum between the rim and the center while allowing your hand to bounce off the head and allow the tone to ring slightly. • Try playing the slap tone. You can play the slap tone using your fingers to strike the conga drum. Slaps are done to the same area as the open tone, but can also be slightly closer to the rim. Normally, you would experience sore fingers from playing the conga drum. You can use medical tape or a bandage in order to protect your fingers. Playing drums can relieve stress, but you also need to take a rest in case you get tired from playing.
How was the conga drum made?
Varda darth if you see this please write on my message board. thank you my friend Your asking, how was, as opposed to, how did, in that sense here are soe sites on Conga Drums and Conga like Drums. Although ultimately derived from African drums made from hollowed logs, the Cuban conga is staved, like a barrel. These drums were probably made from salvaged barrels originally. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conga http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drum The conga drum originates from Africa. The name conga is probably derived from the name of it's homeland, the Congolaise of Africa. Nonetheless, the Conga is also called the Tumbadora http://www.artdrum.com/HISTORY_OF_CONGA_DRUMS.htm
