Dhere Dhere Dec 11, 2003 02:18 a.m.


Hi everyone,

Ever since my guru gave me some fantastic chakradars featuring the bol "Dhere dhere," I've been playing them non-stop (even on my knees when attending my college classes!). I'm astounded at the way muscles in my arm that I previously had no idea existed respond to repeated practice of these compositions. Can anyone suggest any way to enhance the clarity of this amazing bol? Does anyone have any compositions they might want to share (without compromising the sacred traditions of their personal gharana, of course!) ? Thanks.

No joke... just repeat

DheReDheRe KiTaTaKa

over and over and over and over... By practing the bol in it's simplest form, you can focus on your technique and sound. Do as much as you can each day, and you'll notice a difference. And it's important to not stop. Maybe slow down if you have to, but don't stop. It's important to gain endurance...
