A lifetime ago (1999 to be precise) I had some tabla lessons from Mallar Ghosh (who should be better known) that I recorded (audio only) and that I just recently found including his handwritten notes. A portion that I recorded were several relas that he attempted to teach me. (Truthfully, I was just a beginning tabla student, and I was simultaneously awed and bewildered by the blizzard of dhires dhires and dhene genes...). It's only about 10 minutes but an instructive 10 minutes I think!

The video is the audio along with his handwritten notes of each compositions to follow along:

Hi,

The rela notes and execution of the bols are excellent. Please
clarify the Right & Left way/variations of playing Dhere Dhere.

Tks.

Firstly , that is some really amazing fast playing there ! !
WOW!
You were lucky to have some time with Mallar Ghosh !

I too didnt get what the left and right hand things meant on the first page

Also somewhere there were the bols 'ding' and 'ting' which I don't understand.

The compositon rellas look good with some variety in there - I was just blown away with Ghosh's playing and speed ! ! !

Apparently "dhire dhire" can be played left to right or right to left (like te te, i.e. middle finger and index finger, or the reverse).

Ding = dhin + ne

Jnan Prakash Ghosh was certainly a major player in ICM & multi talented & a very intelligent man to boot. Mallar does him proud & some nice titbits there but i'm sure he does a short cut when he does the kaida rela at top speed but no doubting the beautiful clear and nice hand and would be nice to hear a full solo of Mallar as i really like his sound.

Ahh that make sense - on dhire dhire I was taught right to left which I see is quite common - in the Tari Khan video you can see him play hide dhire dhire left to right - I suppose it's also what is comfortable for you
