Hi Adam, Thanks for your interest. I play the bodhran only with my fingers, not a tipper. You are correct. I moisten my finger and gently rub it along the head to get friction. I’m moving the bodhran from the crossbar inside to allow me to create a figure eight movement and not interrupt the drone. An example can be found here ( sorry for the OT percussion demo)

Stay well, Tom
