Djembe Challenge #7

Yes! You made it!! Day 7 of the Djembe Challenge! 

Today, Weedie brings everything back to the beginning by showing the second djembe accompaniment for Mendiani. And he has a funny spoken phrase to help you remember the pattern.

The pattern starts with a single slap note, and then afterwards that note becomes part of the rhythm loop. In your lesson, Weedie explains how to loop the pattern properly.

These two parts for Mendiani are also found in many other traditional West African (Mande region) rhythms. They sound amazing played together!

Like yesterday, we propose that you:

~ Call up a friend and try playing these two patterns together ~

Or play one pattern along with Weedie playing the other on the video.

Here is the pattern written out for you (right-handed version):
