Tirakita Na Feb 16, 2003 03:19 p.m.


When I play Tirakita Na, I notice that I drag my 4th and 5th fingers back to home position, making a raspy sound; should I avoid this by a) lifting fingers off drum completely or b) keeping fingers on the syahi and playing Na with these fingers technically in the wrong place (or none of the above)?

I lift those fingers off the drum before placing them back in the position for Na, it seems to sound and work okay.

The middle finger lifts off after tereki"ta" but the ring finger does not lift just slide back from the gab to the sur.
You are probably putting to much pressure on the ring finger after playing ta and remember the hand shouldn't be to flat your fingers should curl slightly meaning only the tip will slide.
Do not lift the ring finger that creates one extra movement and a big problem later at fast speed.
practice your terekita naka over and over until that slide is smooth with no drag.

When playing quickly, does anyone play TiRaKiDaNa instead of TiRaKiTaNa? Saves the time taken to slide to home position...

Everybody, but of course, unconsciously. So I think it's normal.

Devi ,
I think you are practicing your bols to fast .
The bols are the bols , they should be played precisely . terikita is not terekidha . We have to play the bols exactly as we are taught otherwise when we are advanced and playing advanced compositions we could not play correctly , there is no room for an incorrect bol or movement that is the beauty and complexity of it .
We wonder the same things when playing something complex "wouldn't "ne" be easier here than "Na" etc. but it doesn't work that way , the beauty and quality are lost.
