Can anyone direct me to good sources for learning tala? I am learning sitar and have a difficult time hearing the sam and other accent beats. I am looking for audio instruction.

Hi, If you PM me your email I will send you a link to some tabla tracks that are good for learning Taal.
They are good for learning because they have an open bell at Som and a closed bell at Khali.
I found these very helpful in learning to identify Som and khali.
I have four speeds of Teental in C# & D.

You must do it by clapping (be ahuman metronome) and do , singles, doubles, triples, and quadruples to begin with. You clap WILL not CHANGE TEMPO only your Bols coming from your voice will. I amaking a recording and will post it as a demo to introduction ~ Here is a John McLaughlin taching this very thing with one of his "Shati" group mates ~

The problem is that it is PART of a DVD set and it is difficult (especially) as a beginner to follow and then actually do. I will post a related video withe same measures but just hand and voice. This is great DVD though for any serious student of ICM.

I have just uploaded a new video explaining the concepts of north Indian (Hindustani) rhythm. You can watch it here
.

Hope it helps. I'll be introducing all the taals in separate videos in the coming days and weeks, so you might want to subscribe to the channel if you find it useful.

Regards,
