ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
THE ARTIST: Randy Graves began playing the didgeridoo in 1993 and within a few years became known as one of the best teachers and performers of the instrument in the USA. He has since taught a lot of people, released a lot of recordings, and relocated to the remote Aboriginal communty of Yirrkala in Northeast Arnhem Land, Australia. He now works at Buku-Larrnggay Mulka, the Yirrkala Art Centre, and among other work, manages sales of authentic yidaki/didjeridus for www.yirrkala.com.

THIS RECORDING: Part 3 of the Didjeridu Companion series drills you in compound meters. Learn to leave behind the regular old 4/4 and play in 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 22! Plus, you'll then have the skills to create any rhythm you like. This CD is packed, just seconds shy of 80 minutes. Randy thoroughly explains every rhythm before playing it and provides simple notation on the case. Odd-metered metronome tracks allow you to practice each rhythm on your own as well as playing along with Randy.
These are odd times we're living in. Learn to play in them!

THE YOUR DIDJERIDU COMPANION CD SERIES: Unique among didjeridu teaching materials, the "Your Didjeridu Companion" series simply satisfies every budding player's desire - someone to play with and learn from! Through the years Randy has been teaching the instrument, he's developed a series of rhythms that help students learn fundamental techniques in rhythmic playing. He presents them on these cd's, explaining each rhythm or technique before playing it. Rhythms are then played for 2-3 minutes, with clapsticks for you to keep up, and a microphone by Randy's nose so you know when he breathes! Each track is notated with a memorable phrase.

There's never been a better way to learn how to get some serious rhythms going through your didjeridoo. Find reviews at www.gingerroot.com.

On the first "Companion," Randy provides basic short rhythms which challenge players of many levels to develop precise technique and rhythmic control. The second disc explores development of the rhythms on the original "Companion," and the third teaches "Odd" meters to make your playing and musicianship on the didgeridoo much more impressive! The fourth cd gets deep into mellow didj playing.
