Basic Technique for Hand Drum and Tambourine with Ben Harms, video and notebook. Here is a well-organized instructional videotape and notebook for drummers of all experiences and backgrounds. It begins with instructions on how to hold the instruments and then demonstrates, step-by-step; the various sounds made with the fingers and hands. After working on basic duple and triple patterns the student learns some catchy rhythms. There follows some intermediate studies with standard meters of 2,3,4,6, and 8 beats, as well as, the more unusual 5 and 7 beats. The video goes on to illustrate some advanced techniques and Rhythmic Diminution, the basis of drumming improvisation in India.
