For a beginner I would recommend Learning the Tabla Volume 1. It is pretty easy to follow, with pictures, and includes an audio CD. At some point you should find a good teacher. That is the best way to learn. Good luck.

"Learning the Tabla -Vol 1" (LTT-1) is  a small subset of "Fundamentals of Tabla" (FOT).  LTT-1 is pretty basic while FOT is beefy enough that almost anyone would derive some benefit from. "Learning the Tabla -Vol 2" continues from where LTT -2 left off.  It is a different animal. "Advanced Theory of Tabla" is out of print. "Manufacture and Repair of Tabla" is exactly what its name implies. "Focus on the Kaidas of Tabla" is a very advanced book and is NOT for the beginner.

Thank you for answer, David! LTT-1 is  a small subset of FOT. What about different animal 😉 LTT-2 is it covered by/subset of FOT or Advanced Theory of Tabla or Focus on the Kaidas of Tabla?

LTT-2 is a different from both LTT-1 and FOT.

You might consider getting "Focus on the Kaidas of Tabla".  It is a very advanced book, but over the years you can grow into it.
