Hi MissEmmaLou and welcome

I think we've all gone through that phase. Don't stress yourself, relax and enjoy, the things that you're no happy with iwill sort themselves out soon. Get in contact with some local players and hang out with them a bit if you can, that's always quite helpful.

Apart from that, practice and enjoy, practice and enjoy is the only advice I can give you right now.

Hello Emmalou,

Like seriouschris says,

that is the key. Luckily the didgeridoo is an instrument that will naturally relax you after playing it for some time. It sounds like it already is doing some positive work for you if you quit smoking :wink:

I thought I would get the conversation going on this topic. I find that a great way to get a seamless change in sounds and accents is to practice what you already know to a rhythm. For example, you said that you have a grasp of the A E I O U sounds. Take two of those sounds that you are very comfortable with and put them back to back in a rhythm. Make it simple. A ... E ... A ... E ...

After you spend a little time doing that simple rhythm you will hear some of the subtleties of those accents begin to come out. Focus in on those sounds and the differences between them. You will then have a better understanding of those accents and where they exist. Then by the nature of the repeated rhythm and a better understanding of the accents you will naturally develop a fluent change between them.

Hope this helps. :D
