This lesson shows basic pandeiro technique. Even if you don’t speak Portuguese, you’ll understand how to play this frame drum from Brasil. Use your thumb, finger tips, and the heal of your hand to play three basic sounds. The middle finger of the holding hand can be used to mute the head from below.
