How to play the tank drum? Part 1. Basic principles in playing

You should listen to your tank drum.

 Every tank drum embodies a harmony and melodious intervals. We can say that harmonious tunes are “integrated” into it.

 

 So the learning process basically comes down to the development of different techniques of sound generation, but the most important thing is to LISTEN to the instrument, to find the intervals which resonate with your inner world and make you hear a tune. The most difficult things in learning are not to dissipate your attention to the tank drum as a whole, and not to make cacophony. You should find combinations of two or three sounds or tongues and beat them, then find the other ones, change or mix them, and thus train your ear.
