Hi all!

I'm a tabla student (4 months) from Montreal and have been reading this forum now and then, appreciate it a lot I'm learning the famous Delhi kaida (dhati dhage...) and the new variation I'm practicing lately goes like this:

dha tireketetak tikdha tirekete
dhati dhage dhina gena

...main theme and so on...

I won't be seeing my teacher before a couple of days and I'm confused about tireketetak and tikdha. I've already learned that taka is either the index on kinar and then KE, or then index on gab and then KE, depending of the context. So what would be "tak", is it different from taka? Same question regarding tik versus tika.

Thanks!

Hi, questions of this kind are tough to answer because the bol spellings are not standard. One reason is that the bol spelling simply reflects the regional Indian language variations, as well as differences in gharana. Another is that the same note on tabla can have multiple bol names depending on the phrase in which it appears. Sometimes, different people just spell bols differently. Finally, the English might look the same, but the Indian spelling might be different - the two types of "taka" you mentioned are NOT spelled or pronounced the same in Indian languages.

As hbajpai suggested, posting the main theme will provide some context, but I just wanted to point out the risks of getting advise on the internet.

Regards,

Thanks all for your replies
This is from the famous delhi kaida :

Dhati dhage nadha tirekete
Dhati dhage tina kena
Tati take nata tirekete
Dhati dhage dhina gena

Greg, you're right, my teacher told me to play "tireketetak tik" on the syahi, but why is it "tak tik" instead of "taka tika"?
Are you saying that if I had to play "taka tika" I should play it on the kinar?

Thanks

Hi,

In this phrase, "tik" is played as "Ti" on syahi. Same as Ti in Tirakita (a bit harder to create some weight in the bol).

Hope that helps,

Cheers,
