New DVD from Yousif Sheronick – Advanced Frame Drum Techniques

Yousif Sheronick has released a new dvd for the advanced techniques for frame drums and middle eastern percussion. The DVD takes the student beyond the “dum” and “tak” knowledge to more substantial development in phrases and faster techniques. After years of study with Glen Velez, Yousif demonstrates these techniques including split finger, fast fingerings, snapping, split finger and italian triplets, and cymbal fingerings.

Yousif’s first DVD for Riq has been a very popular work and this DVD extends his teaching to the uses on bodhran, tar, riq and other drums.
