hello! chewy and i attended an indian music workshop on wednesday. it was very interesting, and the tabla player was fascinating!
some basic information about the tabla: it consists of 2 drums. the right made of wood, left made of metal. the tension of the drums can be changed and this affects the general pitch of the drums. pitch bending can be played on the tabla. or like when we play gun he tao we can change the pitch of drum during the men4 ji1 part. it can be done on the tabla too!
also, when they learn to play the tabla, each stroke has a specific syllable to it, called a bol.
they can recite the bols
really really fast!
anyway everybody please study hard for end of years!
