"You're on the right track, Juju, technically speaking, bamboo is a giant grass, and the yidaki (didgeridoo) indeed comes from Gondwannaland (Australia) but this is not the traditional termite-hollowed eyucalyptus, that species of termite lives…"

didgeridoo mouthpiece

sculpted mouthpiece eliminates the need for beeswax - this is one end of a single bit of bamboo, fully cured and preserved with linseed oil so no worries on the cracking!

Hello,
I have started a CBN group entitled, "How to Play CBG" It is my hope and intention to encourage the "Wealth of Talent" here on the Nation to share their knowledge and skill to further the CBG movement. Please consider contributing an instructional "video" link to this group. If you are a viewer seeking instruction, please feel free to write. If you have any suggestions or know other players who you think may want to post instructional "video" links, please contact me. Thank you for your interest and support, Keni Lee

It is a beautiful sounding instrument. It has always been on my "to make" list, but woodwinds scare me a bit and 200 hours is scary..... but If you find something simple i will almost certainly give it a go.
