Bongo Drum Instruction

Bongo Drum Instruction

This wonderfully detailed instructional album provides the listener with instructions on how to play the bongo drums with little to no prior knowledge. The instructor, Bill Loughborough, encourages the student to go at his or her own pace in an effort to grasp the knowledge rather than just fly through it. The liner notes are made to go in conjunction with the album as they show the exercises that are meant to be played as well as provide short tips and tricks to successfully playing the bongos at any level of proficiency.
