Didjeridoo May 22, 2001 10:34 p.m.

I got a real one of these the other day. I really like it, It drones in D. I got circular breathing down already. It's really good, I have been experimenting with using it as the drone during guitar slide ragas, along with some african double hand drums my friend has. It's a pretty interesting sound, In the future I think Im going to add it to a band with Didjeridoo, Tabla, guitar, sitar, bass. I think it would be a very interesting sound, What do you all think?

Hi Monk,

The idea is great, I hear from time to time at concerts playing the didgeridoo with Indian instruments like sarod, tabla etc, and all I can tell is that it sounds great.

You seem to be very enthusiastic, keep on being like that.

Good realization!

I have practiced, and can now go 15 minutes circular breathing without stopping. I can only go around 5 if i play a guitar at the same time. Makes my throat soar becuase you can't swallow during breathing, makes it really dry and hoarse.
