Basic Djembe Rhythms for Beginners in Four Quarters

Hello friends from Mexico and the world, Tamborería helps you learn in a simple way these rhythmic exercises, which can be applied in any drum, exercises that teach us to alternate and master the hands correctly, useful for those who are looking for how to play the Djembe.

It's very simple the first thing you should know is what 3 Main hits For the Djembe they are:

G = Bass / Bass = B -- Beat with the full palm in the center of the Djembe
A = Treble / Tone = T --- Hit with your fingers with the palm on the edge of the Djembe
C = Slapped / Slap = S- dry blow with the yolks on the edge of the Djembe

NOT THIS KIND OF CACHETED, EH ...

After this, the most essential thing is to understand the time structure that must be used to synchronize all the strokes which perfectly match the graphic diagram, which is very useful to help us understand the strokes that touch the hands

Table to alternate the blows of the hands

Rooms:

The hands alternate to count each hit giving with the right hand the strongest times of the compass (1 and 3) and with the left the weak ones (2 and 4) usually these strokes are called setbacks

D I D I

Octaves

In the same way we alternate the hands for these blows and notice that now all the rooms are touched with the right hand, The strongest time of these is the number one that is where the rhythmic cycle begins, note that all the second eighths we have left to give them with the left hand, these times will always be the weak time of the eighths

NOTE: in this example we cover all the times but it is very common in the music to make silences in those cases instead of marking the type of blow in Our graph we use a _ (underscore) to mark that there is a time of silence there it is counted as a blow shakes the corresponding hand

This scheme is the most used for bass drums or Base

D i d i D i d i

D i _ i D _ d i

Sixteenths

Note that the number of strokes is increasingly divided and that now the right hand began to play all the strong sixteenths and the weak ones left this scheme is the one that we regularly use to mark bends and for solo drums we also use the _ (Low script) to mark silences, respecting the hand in turn to fulfill that silence

D i d i D i d i D i d i D i d i

Note: with these graphs it is where we can know to which hand it touches which blow now we will only replace the letters of the hands with the type of blow that we want to give and ready, remember that the types of blow are

G = Severe A = acute C = Slapped

Account in Cuartos Compas 4 / 4

The most essential thing is to keep in mind that the time of origin is the one is where it all begins and ends if we want to make an incredible closure we must take a strong blow there to give the final feeling.

It is necessary to try to do all the exercises saying the account aloud and progressively keep it in mind all the time until this becomes automatic and sensitive

1 2 3 4

16 / 16 base table

This is the graph without blows open to 16 / 16 we can still divide twice but for now it is the basis for the fastest blows at a moderate speed will depend on the BPM the true speed of our interpretation we recommend a speed of 100 BPM so that our exercises are easy and go up as we move forward with our skills.

On the Green lines goes the compass account.

Did you get it?

Examples:

In these examples we will alternate our hands depending on the color that touches each letter trying to count the numbers of the measure aloud

G _ _ _ G _ _ _G _ _ _G _ _ _

G _ _ _ G _ _ _G _ _ _G _ _ _

G _ _ _ A _ _ _G _ _ _A _ _ _

G _ _ _ A _ _ _G _ _ _A _ _ _

G _ C _ A _ _ _G _ C _A _ _ _

G _A _G _A _G _A _G _A _

G _G _G _G _A _A _A _A _

G _G _A _A _G _G _A _A _

G A A A G A A A G A A A G A A A

G A A _ G A A_ G A A _G A A _

G _ A A G _A A G _ A _G _ A _

G A C A G A C A G A C A G A C A

After achieving all these exercises you will begin to be a compass master.
