    They are an aboriginal instrument. Hard to describe, but I think they are pretty cool. I have a friend that plays one and I think it is quite an interesting thing. The have a real low tone.

    Oh...my...god. Now not only is it Australian...but lanc plays it too. It's just not lookin' good for the Didgiridoo. And also...Rolf Harris played it. It's not f*ckin' cool.

    It's about as cool as hemroids. And Yorkshire lass, eh? Where in Yorkshire? :twisted:

    Really? Listenin' to Abba and playing the Didgiridoo? Did they change what "it" is again!?

    And for everyone else; it's not cool. This man plays it (as well as lanc): Rolf Harris!

    Rolf is the one on the left of the picture. And NS, stop admiring the damn lemur.

    You get the same effect if you blow down a vacuum cleaner hose. If you suck you can clean the house at the same time as entertaining yourself (I think I have left myself open for a few comments there :rolleyes: )
