How heavy a use of left hand individual fingers.. Dec 17, 2003 12:29 p.m.


Hi,
I am really new to learning Tabla. Before even start learning, I shall like to know how much use of individual fingers of the left hand is involved in playing tabla ( more correctly dagga).
In using my hands, I am righty and not lefty.
I have a weak last fingure( smallest end finger) of the left hand. Can it be restrictive in playing it for long time?

Thanks...

Shawn

Hi,

The small finger of the left hand isn't really used in tabla playing. It's mostly the index and middle finger. There is also a stroke (Ka) that uses the whole hand, flat, but that won't be a problem.
