Treat your drum like a pet. If you're
happy, it's happy.
Heat is the drum killer, please avoid
leaving it in a hot car or hanging it over a heater register or stove.
Cold and damp may make your drum sad.
You can heat it gradually with a hair dryer or other gentle heat.
Pet and stroke your drum often, the oil
from your skin is the best thing for the head.
Bond with your drum. Decorate it, paint
it, make it your own. Any non-oil-based pigment may be used.
You already know how to play it.
Give yourself permission. Listen to it carefully, it has things to
Wishing you a long and happy journey
