I have the calling to learn tablas and I know that in order to do so a guru is neccesary. I have looked all over. I have hounded the hindu temple and have given them my name, I also have begged all my Indian friends to ask relatives and friends that play if they could teach me. None of them have time. I have also E-mailed a teacher in Lexington, Ky but have still not received a reply. I live in Louisville, Ky and have to learn tablas. If anyone can help or advise me on this matter, I would be forever grateful. I must learn and I don't wnat to do it on my own and develop bad technique. Thankyou!
