Must have with the "Bongo Book"

"If you're trying to self teach, and know little of percussion as I do, this is a "Must have" with "The Bongo Book". Some of the explanations in the book just weren't getting into my brain. This cleared it up quickly."
Not for beginners

"The DVD lacks exercises. Salloum talks too much. He does not tell you what is that he is going to do as if you are supposed to know the stuff. I wouldn't want him for teacher. He does not show much of anything, only few basic things that do not go anywhere. The quality of the clips from other players is poor. The annoying rhythm seems to be longer than the portions that he actually demonstrates. At one point he states that what he is "teaching" is covered in his book, that does not come with the DVD. If so, the book should have been included.
Waste of my money. Now I have to buy another DVD to learn to play Bongo."
