I haven't really been questioned that much about didgeridoos, to be honest. I think maybe my father's question, since I'm looking for a didgeridoo for him, about how to ship one to Finland, and where to purchase one.

Well I said I'd go around while in Australia. Since it became quite hard to find a real not factory made didgeridoo I thought about searching for one online. Been to a few websites before you guys but this seemed reliable and you seem to be selling real authentic didges.

How does one circular breathe?

I haven't found out yet but the didge is fun even if you can't circular breathe.

John from USA

How long did it take you to learn to circle breathe?

I had the fortune to have as my best friend a bagpiper who'd taught himself to play the didj - since he was accustomed to circle-breathing while playing the pipes he taught himself quickly and was able to help me learn in a couple of months. the rest is just development and I learn new things all the time.
