    I just bought a didgeridoo on Saturday, and I'm trying to teach myself how to play. Any tips from other didgeridoo players would be wonderful :)

    I can already make the mouth motions and get a few different sounding basic drones. I read about circular breathing, but i can't seem to get it quite right. Does it take a long time to get it right?

    You'll be able to work out the breathing, just be patient! The didge will open up a whole new world for you if you put your mind to it - it's an instrument for unlimited expression. Enjoy the drone!

    I play the didj quite well, been playing for about 5 years now, it took me about 6 months to do circuar breathing properly, but once you get it, it opens a hole new world to playing the didj. The longest Ive played it for is 2 Hrs none stop

    Circular breathing is quite simple, You start by puffing your cheeks out hold your breath & squeeze the air out your mouth slowly making a raspberry noise & breath in thru your nose.

    here are my 2 didj's
