I am planning on learning Tabla, I never played Tabla before in my life but I have always been fasinated by the complex sound of this instrument.

I finally decided to get a set (a friend is sourcing me a decent set whilst visiting familiy in gudgerat)

I would welcome any advice for someone starting out, any tutorial DVD's books ect

I live in the NorthWest of England, Can anyone reconmend a teacher?

Thanks

Welcome to the forum, Paul!

I think I remember hearing somewhere about 4,000 bols in Blackburn, Lancashire? I trust you'll be adding a few more.

:wink:

Good luck!

Hi Greg

Yeah I play didj, in the last couple of years I've really got into the traditional arnhemland style of playing.
Its completely changed my view of music, no time fixed time signatures no notation.

Its taught in a simialar way to how I undersatand tabla is taught. For instance a rythm would initially "sung" as

Dritttn Dorro Dorro Drittn Dorro Dorro Drtittn De Drittn Dorro Dorro

I've always been fasinated by the soud tabla, There was a player at a recent didj festival and i was really hooked.

I've tracked a couple of teachers down in my area, I'll probably be back on the forum with a million questions.

Cheers
Paul

Do you sell didges as well, a good mate of mine travelled up your way a while ago to buy a didge...

Good luck with tabla...

Personally I don't sell sticks, but a friend of mine Kyle Maplesden sells fantastic trad instruments

If your mate was buying traditional yirdaki in this part of the country he was probably visiting Kyle

Who's your didj playing friend? There's not that many of us in country, there's a good chance I've bumped into him at festivals

My didj playing friend (also tabla and other percussion) is Colin, speaks with a Scottish accent, was seen mooching around at WOMAD this year!

I'm sure he went up to Hull a year or so ago (I think) to buy a couple of didje's including the wondrously named Didjerebone...

sorry everyone if this is off topic....
