Hey Onilu! It's important not to think about rudiments like double strokes or paradiddles when playing djembe. Really the only "rudiment" that I think translates are flams. I know some contemporary congueros use rudiments, but djembe is pretty much "straight-sticking".

This is a great forum for asking questions, and I think that while a real teacher would always be preferred, there is no shortage of well produced instructional material these days, as well as some really great stuff on youtube.
