hi everyone,
i'm planning to accompany my friend on his sarod solo-performance. i've pretty much planned out what i'm going to play throughout the performance. however, in the start during the slow tempo gat, i only have the basic tintaal theka. i was hoping if any of you know any slow tintaal theka, that you would like to share.

thank

Rahul

Hi Playtabla,i think the best way to learn this is listening to records.
Hear how the maestro's fill up the gaps between the bols. You can use all kinds of variations between the main bols. Just let your fantasy work. Good luck with your performance!

Hey guys thanks for your feedback. Rahul, thanks for the taal. I've done some practice, and the taal definitely is indispensable. It will fit right in with the gat. Sawara, I took your advice and listened to some recordings. Since i'm still an amateur, it's hard for me to pickup the bols. However, i've discovered a kaherwa taal from one of the easy listenings, and will be playing during the fast theka at the end. i just hope i'll be able to begin the tihai simultaneously with the sarod.
