Easier Songs

While playing if you hit both sides of the drum on a left or right beat it will count as if you got the left or the right beat.

Quick Coins

To get quick coins, you should play Pokemon Theme or Zelda on the highest difficulty you can do. On Gorilla, I was able to once get 700 coins.

DK Bongo Notes

When you play on Street Performance, each symbol will represent the following notes:
Yellow: Left Bongo
Red: Right Bongo
Pink: Both Bongos at once
Blue: Clap your hands

Get Coins

Every time you hit a beat, you will get a coin. If you hit and it says GREAT, you get 2 coins, and if says OK, you'll just get 1. You can use the coins to buy different drum sounds, mini games or songs for the Gorilla difficulty.

Crazy Press Start Letters

On the title screen where it says press start, clap your hands or just tap the microphone and the letters will go crazy.

Keeping Your Hands Free

If you have the Donkey Konga bongos then set the clap sensor sensivity to its highest so that any loud noise will make a clap. This will allow you to make any loud noise to clap and leave your hands free for playing the Bongos. Just dont turn up the music volume to much!
