  • How to play your first bongo solo: a lesson for beginners

    4:15

    This is Lesson 1 from the video Learn to Solo on Bongos: A Step-By-Step Guide for Beginners by Alan Dworsky. It's available at

    The video is structured into 8 lessons, each focused on a set of licks that are combined into a variety of patterns and played with music. You'll learn the power of pairs, checkered voicing, the offbeat path, how to create the illusion of speed with a rippled 6, how to stick the landing, a bit about technique, and more. And the music never stops, so you can always play along.

    The video comes with a PDF file that includes charts of all the patterns. The PDF file also gives you the pitches I tuned my bongos to in every lesson.

    You can think of the licks and patterns in this video as being like words and phrases in your rhythmic vocabulary. The goal is for you to learn to put them together in your own way, so that when you solo on bongos--whether it's in a band or a jam or just playing along with your favorite music--you can say what you want to say.

  • Bongo-0 by Roberto Sierra / Performed by Eric Hines

    4:22

    Percussion instruments have been used by many contemporary composers almost exclusively as a media to convey certain coloristic effects.  When listening to Afro-Caribbean folk music, one becomes aware that in this genre, rhythm is the most important factor.  The articulations and modes of attack (color) are subordinated in such a way that their functions are mainly to help in the shaping of the rhythmic figures.

    Bongo-0 follows the same line of Afro-Caribbean music, in the sense that rhythm is the foremost parameter.  In this piece, the bongos are used in the traditional manner, with the exception of several unorthodox striking techniques, such as scratching the heads.  The articulations and modes of attack, as in Caribbean folk music, form an integral part of the rhythmic patterns.  Rhythm and the other parameters are treated in such a way that the form of the piece is a continuous transformation of these.  During this process of change, the voice of the percussionist is utilized as a quasi-percussive element.

    Bongo-0 is not a mere quotation or transcription of folk music.  This work extracts the folkloric essence of the Afro-Caribbean music and presents it in a totally different dimension.

    - Roberto Sierra

    An accomplished performer in a variety of Afro/Caribbean, Brazilian, and popular music, Hines maintains an active performance schedule in Tucson playing timbales with the salsa ensemble Descarga and steel pan with his Caribbean jazz combo Pan Dulce.  An in demand clinician of concert, marching, and world percussion, Hines has presented for the International Percussion Festival in San Juan, Puerto Rico, PAS Days of Percussion, TMEA Clinic/Convention, UT Austin Longhorn Music Camp, UT Brownsville Percussion Studio, South East Texas Marching Percussion Camp, and many high school and middle school summer percussion programs.  His performance and recording credits include work with Descarga, Pan Dulce, Tito y su Nuevo Son, Rahe, The Valley Symphony Orchestra, Champaign-Urbana Symphony, SPIpan, The Bongodogs, and I-pan.  Eric has performed internationally throughout Puerto Rico, China, England, Scotland, Belgium, France, Canada, and Mexico.

  • How I Tune Congas

    12:22

    I've been asked these questions a lot.... What notes do you tune in? How do you tune? Why that note?... I know many musicians that choose not to share, but just wanted to show everyone my perspective and what helps with my sound...

    Everyone has their own style in tuning and their own methods, some don't even tune in notes... I do that myself at times...which is why it makes playing this instrument so diverse and special... we all have a sound.

    FYI... take your time when tuning... TAKE CARE of your heads and don't over tighten... PLEASE make sure you tune each lug evenly... HIT the middle of the head after every cycle so the head can settle... DO NOT BE AFRAID to experiment with different scales and notes... it's ok to break the rules sometimes.

  • BONGO drum

    3:46

    BONGO drum ( easy way to tune bongo drum to a good pitch)
    use my method to tune bongo drum to a good sounding pitch...
    Bongo tuning is largely a matter of personal preference. Some players tune the drums in reference to the 12-tone melodic scale: a fourth, a fifth, or an octave apart.
    The easiest way to approach it, though, is to tune the macho up very high, until even light tapping produces a crisp tone. Then tune the hembra up until it produces a pleasing tone that sounds right in combination with the macho.
    The macho will make a scary cracking or popping noise when you tighten it up fairly high, but this is just the sound of the hide under tension re-seating itself across the bearing edge. However if you have tuned very high, and the lugs become difficult to tighten, stop there. Tightening further could tear the head....THIS TUNING METHOD is the PERFECT FIFTH method

  • Bongo Beats - LP Matador Bongos

    10:04

    Just to give you a glimpse of the parts of a set of bongo drums. I bought these on e-bay a few years back. Breaking it down and putting the parts back together allows you to become intimate with your drums. Tuning is something you must learn by doing. Each player knows what sounds they want from their instrument so one tinkers with it until they understand what makes it work or not work for them. I still like to spend more time playing than tuning because I have so little time and energy to spare for my drum hobby in the first place. Still, if you like tinkering, go ahead and break it down and put it back together! You also may want to explore making your own custom-fitted heads. Again, time and energy.

  • A simple African rhythm for beginners on bongos

    7:40

    This is Lesson 3 from the new instructional video Bongo Grooves for Beginners, Volume 3. It's available as a DVD or a download at In it, Al Dworsky shows you how to play funky West African djembe grooves on bongos. Each pattern is taught step-by-step, using a player's eye view and a side view, at normal speed and in slow motion. The grooves fit with all kinds of music, as you'll see when Al plays them with his brother Rich Dworsky, the piano player on public radio's A Prairie Home Companion. And you'll be able to play along, because Al only plays exactly what he's shown you how to play in the lessons.

    To show you how the grooves work in a more traditional context, Al is joined by master drummer Fode Seydou Bangoura on djembe. The DVD also includes a PDF file with simple charts of all the patterns.

This illustrates a way to play Reggae on bongos, but it's just my interpretation, so no reason to get too serious about it. I take the same four-beat of the Martillo and add a slight variation and tempo. Just have fun on the drums.
