    Anyone here play bongos? I'm thinking of taking them up, and I was wondering, about how long does it take to learn to play them?

    yea it's not very difficult. just pick one up and play around with it at the music store and get a quick feel for em and whether or not you'd like to learn more. bongos sound great backing a single acoustic guitar or something. even cheap flimsy ones can sound good.

    Cool, we just got a new coffee house in town, and the owner's thinking about starting poetry readings at night. Maybe when I learn, I can get a gig. About how much does a good set cost, and which ones are the best?

    Bongos are pretty neat. I can play them. I'm not amazing, but I can play them. They aren't too hard.

    they can be pretty cheap or expensive. I have a CODA brand that's pretty good. cost about $70 or so. you can get cheap ones for maybe $30
