Hello everyone! During my practice this morning, I decided to try and compose a tete kaida in tisra jati, or triplets, for my own use. the kaida composed itself very naturally, and I like it so much that I'm offering it here as a gift.

/Dha - ghena Dha - /Dha - tete ghena
/Dhaghena Dhatete/Dhaghe Dhina ghena
/tete tete ghena /Dha - tete ghena
/Dhaghena Dhatete/Dhaghe Tina kena

/Ta - kena Ta - /Ta - tete kena
/Takena Tatete /Take Tina kena
/tete tete ghena /Dha - tete ghena
/Dhaghena Dhatete/Dhaghe Dhina ghena

This is very standard, but it has a very nice 'bounce' to it and I think it's fun to play. What I'd really like is for people who try this kaida out to post some of their ideas for variations. I have my own ideas, naturally, but I'm excited to hear what others will do with it.

Sweet.

Thanks for sharing it. The simplicity is quite deceptive actually. It has a very nice feel to it. Sorry, haven't thought of variations or vistaar but I'm sure the theme is full of possibilities.

Chaz,
Very nice!, but it may be a little deceptive for beginners as it's written out in both 2's and 3's.
How'z this written in 2's only so the student can hear the difference between 'dha' and 'dha-' :

/Dhaa ghena Dhaa / Dhaa tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
/tete tete ghena / Dhaa tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Tina kena

Yeah Aanaddha, your transcription is probably clearer. to be honest, I don't know why I subdivided it differently like that! It's just something about how I feel it in my head, go figure. Say, I wonder what happened to Jamie? He's the kinda guy who I think would've leapt at the chance to offer variations to this. Anyway, I think I'll probably post some variations in a few days to get the creative ball rolling.

cool! just like i hoped, you guys are taking this stuff in directions I totally wouldn't have thought of. Zennman, you practicaly turned it into a Gat with that last variation!

I'll throw some out here too. After dhora I think the first thing to do is develop "dha":

/Dha- ghena Dha- / Dha- tete ghena
/Dha- ghena Dha- / Dha- tete ghena
/Dha- ghena Dha- / Dha- tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
(theme)

/Dha- ghena Dha- / Dha- tete ghena
/Dha- Dha- tete / ghena Dha- Dha-
/tete ghena Dha- / Dha- tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhinaghena
(theme)

/Dha- ghena Dha- / ghena Dha- ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhinaghena
/tete ghena Dha- / Dha- tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhinaghena
(theme)

/Dha- ghena Dha- / Dha- tete ghena
/tete ghena Dha- / Dha- tete ghena
/tete ghena Dha- / Dha- tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
(theme)

(I've edited these to fit better with the variations I posted more recently.)

AAACK! I'm BORED! No one's posting! Here's some busy work. :roll:

the next phase: ghena.

/tete ghena Dha- / Dha- tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
/tete ghena Dha- / Dha- tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
(theme)

/ghena tete ghena / Dha- tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
/tete ghena Dha- / Dha- tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
(theme optional)

/ghena tete ghena / tete ghena tete
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
/tete ghena Dha- / Dha- tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
(theme optional)

/ghena tete ghena / ghena tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
/tete ghena Dha- / Dha- tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
(theme optional)

/ghena ghena tete / ghena ghena tete
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
/tete ghena Dha- / Dha- tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
(theme optional)

/ghena ghena ghena / ghena tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
/tete ghena Dha- / Dha- tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
(theme optional)

Note how the emphasis was changed from "dha" in the last variations to "ghena," the next important bol, in a relatively smooth and natural manner. I've posted six variations on this step, probably overkill, but they don't all have to be used.

Next is "tete," and we'll make the transition by starting with reverse theme:

/tete tete ghena / Dha- tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
/Dha- ghena Dha- / Dha- tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Tina kena

/tete tete ghena / Dha- tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
/tete tete ghena / Dha- tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
(theme)

/tete tete ghena / Dha- tete ghena
/tete tete ghena / Dha- tete ghena
/tete tete ghena / Dha- tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
(theme)

/tete tete ghena / tete tete ghena
/tete tete ghena / Dha- tete ghena
/tete tete ghena / Dha- tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
(theme optional)

/tete tete ghena / tete tete ghena
/tete ghena tete / ghena tete ghena
/tete tete ghena / Dha- tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
(theme optional)

/tete tete ghena / tete ghena tete
/ghena tete ghena / tete tete ghena
/tete tete ghena / Dha- tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
(theme optional)

/tete ghena tete / tete tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
/tete tete ghena / Dha- tete ghena
/Dhaghe naDha tete / Dhaghe Dhina ghena
(theme)

Coming up: the final phases, Dhaghena and dhinaghena, concluded with a bitchin' tihai! 8)
