The wobble #1

Lesson overview

In this lesson, we show you how to play the wobble sound. Every didgeridoo player will probably have a different interpretation of the wobble – each will sound different and involve a slightly different technique. This is the first in the wobble lesson series

Lesson goals

  • Understand the 3 parts to this wobble technique
  • Play them smoothly at a medium speed to hear the wobble variation
  • Create a rhythm with your new wobble sound

Training tips

  • Each “wobble” contains 3 sounds:
    • Ta – small diaphragm pulse
    • Cheeks full
    • Breath
  • Play each sound separately and slowly to get your brain used to the new co-ordination
  • As you get comfortable, slowly speed up the technique
  • Be patient and practice hard, this technique may take a few weeks or even months to get smooth
  • Think to yourself “I will practice this 1000 times”, that way you don’t get disappointed or frustrated after 20 times 🙂
  • Your wobble doesn’t need to sound exactly like this video. There are no rules, work towards a sound that you like best
