I have a question on a previous post. The poster wrote:
Quote:
A complete beat has a down stroke and a upstroke. So, for example: DhaNa | represents dha played on down and Na played on up. Dha(s)| Dha plyed on down and noting played on up. (s)Dha| Nothing played on down and Dha played on up.

How does this work with regard to 6 notes over 4 beats?
Say....in Dhati Dha Dha Thete? I'm a beginner and thought I was doing ok with teental composed of single or double speed. The 11/2 speed is something I'm grappling with. Thanks. I apologize if the question is not clear, it's the best I can articulate it.

Hi, the response there was specific to the context of the question asked and the composition.

Your query is however valid.

Are you asking about (Tishra Jati) triplets? 123 | 123 | 123 | 123 or a triplet kaida in teentaal? Are you asking for an example of a kaida that is in Tishra jati and how to write it in 4 bars or are you just looking for a triplet pattern in general?

I find this http://neilhawes.com/sstheory/theory10.htm to be very helpful and find my self constantly coming back to this.

Thanks for the link. I'm fairly new and still getting a feel for the subject. My question is that when one is counting out the notes...in this case it is 6 notes over 4 beats in one line of teental (dhati dha dha thete)....does each note have a corresponding upbeat and downbeat?
My problem is playing this with a nagma or metronome. It always comes out ahead or behind the beat If I'm trying to play these six notes across four beats. It's easy for me if I have 4 notes with 4 corresponding beats with the nagma or metronome.

I apologize if I'm not able to describe my question more accurately.
