Easy Coins
Do a song that has many rolls (for example, We Will Rock You or the Pokemon Theme). Those songs have lots easy rolls, and on only Monkey Mode you can at least rack 300.
Go through a drum roll easier!
Once you get to the drum roll just blow on the mic so DK will clap REALLY fast... (This is only for those who have DK bongos, if you have the GC controller i can't really help you.)

Lots Of Coins
When you come across a star drum roll (Clap over and over) blow into the DK bongos (Or scream) and you will get rapid fire coins, my estimate about 70. and normally you would get 15.
Never Miss Bongo Beats
Whenever a red, yellow, or pink barrel appears, just hit both bongos. It will show up as a yellow, red or a pink. This helps for the Gorilla songs.
Soft Clap
Instead of having to clap loudly or take your hands off the bongos, just snap your fingers or give the right side of the bongo (side not surface; the plastic part) a good tap. This will respond as a tap. Also, instead of clapping or hitting the side of the side of the Konga, you can just yelp a small but loud noise.
You only have to memorize clapping!
Here is a way on Monkey/Chimp/Gorilla JAM mode that you can get all of them right.

1.Go through the song you want to play and memorize where clapping is.

2.Once you think you're ready,go to wherever JAM mode you need to go to and select the song.

3.Since you know where the clapping is,you won't have any trouble on the notes. Just hit both bongos at the same time! I will count as either one.

Clap at the title screen to move the letters in the "Press Start Button" message.
Easier Clap Roll & Be aware of the Bannana Juggle Mini Game

If you see a clap roll, make a lot of noise into the sensor. Try saying something. Try (simotanuelously) make a screeching noise.

To be aware of the bannana juggle, you musn't hit the drum hard. If you hit it hard, then Diddy will keep giving you new bannanas. If your juggle amount is very high and you hit the drum hard, Diddy will give you a new bannana when it is not needed. Well there you have it. Look for more cheat updates from me.
If you get 500 coins or more, you will see (at the end of the song) a whole bunch of coins will appear. The song I prefer is The Legend of Zelda song.

HINT: If you see a drum roll and it's either yellow or red, (NOT PINK) use both of your hands on 1 drum. You'll get more coins doing that than just using hand.
