Describe your last attempt to learn something that did not come easily to you.
About two years ago, i became fascinated with the African talking drum, and i really wanted to learn how to play it. So i bought the drum, and asked my cousin to teach me how to play it. In the few days i spent with him, he gave me a basic lesson, and instructions on how to practice on my own. A knowledge of Yoruba language is required to play to Yoruba songs, so i thought i would be easy for me since i speak Yoruba fluently.
To cut a long story short, it’s been two years now and i can only play the few songs my cousin thought me. Meanwhile, my brother who never got the lesson, but messes around with my drum, can play it better than me.
