    Hi, I watched a couple of other video? and the player were “playing” with their left hand too while here it seems to me you are doing something different?! is it just your personal choice or are there any reasons?

  11. BlackAngusYoung says:

    The water buffalo skins on my entry-level (?… $80) bongos seems dry. Is there a certain oil for them? I have lem-oil guitar fretboard conditioner as well as valve and slide oil for trumpets at my disposal,? if they’re any good.
    I’ve read that just playing them with handcream on is good. Any ideas?
