"If you are planning to learn to play the didgeridoo, you may not wish to outlay a lot of money. A good wooden didgeridoo, even one that is not decorated, will, most likely, cost in the hundreds of dollars. A good starter's didge can be made from P.V.C. waste-water pipe. Warm some bee's wax, fashion a mouth-piece from it at one end, and you are ready to start. A piece of 40mm P.V.C. pipe 1.19 meters long will produce a D pitch." [p.2]
Includes both instructional examples and original compositions. Tracks 1-21 are played on PVC. Available from the author. See the accompanying book above.
