Lesson goals

  • Be able to play this rhythm continuously for 1 minute while taking circular breaths
  • Be able to balance your breathing in and blowing out, keeping a comfortable lungful of air
  • Keep the timing of your rhythm consistent

Training tips

  • When you see (B), this means take a circular breath
  • When we say “breath”, this means take a circular breath
  • When you first start practicing this rhythm, don’t worry about the quality of your sound, just work on getting the timing of your breaths right
  • It doesn’t matter if your breathing doesn’t sound good, this is a great exercise to strengthen your circular breathing
  • Experiment with the speed of your rhythm
  • As you try playing this rhythm faster, make sure you don’t miss any breaths. Take a circular breath after every “ajuda”
  • Remember, use as little air as you can. You don’t need to BLOW down the didgeridoo – gentle, gentle, gentle

    Nice! Sanshi, “AJUDA” does mean something! It means HELP in Portuguese! hahaha
    So, this is a SOS call in a the didgeridoo language! At least if you are playing it for a Portuguese audience! 😉
