Yesterday, I came across this advice on the Bongomania website:

There are two facets to improving your bongo playing: listening to rhythms and music until the rhythms are embedded inside you, and doing repetitive hand exercises to give your hands the speed they need to let those rhythms out.

The more you play, the better you play. Bongos are a soloing instrument, and solos are constructed of all of the rhythmic pieces you have absorbed into your unconscious. If you have trained your hands along with your ears, the music will spring out before you have had a chance to think about it.

I fully agree with this advice - but am I right to do so? I've certainly been following it for the last several months.
