The sounds? Gun, Go, Pa. - Djembe patterns are mostly made up of three tones, although many more are possible and are used by advanced players. Different phonetic systems are used to speak the tones, but the most popular one over here in the States is Gun, Go, Pa, the one Baba O. uses, and variations.
