Learn Tabla VCD Feb 11, 2004 10:08 p.m.


FYI...
I am beginner to Tabla. I recently purchased a Tabla Tutor VCD. VCD 1 is for absolute beginner covering various Notations (Bols) and Fingering, Basic Exercise, Classical beat cycles,kayada and its variations and advance exercise.
VCD 2 covers 16 Classical Bhajan beats with examples . This will be very useful who wants to accompany bhajans . It also contains Relas(rolls for high speed). Overall I find it very useful for begineers to watch and learn. I paid $29 for both VCD.

I will be glad to give further details by email if anyone is interested. Thanks

Who is the instructor?
...Newbies, don't be fooled, you won't learn an iota from a VCD, a DVD, a VHS, a CD, a tape, or a book compared to what you'd learn from a real teacher.
My $.02.

You're right, Talvin Singh doesn't get talked about much as a tabla player. Have you heard Vira? It's the only one I've got - i'd love to know of any other albums of his you know of - tabla albums, not his electronica stuff. I think he's amazing. Very sensative, and destinctive. The pure quality of the sounds he makes is exceptional. I don't think it works very well on his electronica stuff though. I certainly want to hear more.

I don't think I've heard Vira, although I have Ok and Ha; tabla doesn't dominate his music, but its usually lurking in the background somewhere, I think it blends nicely with the rest of the music, you should check it out. He's done some producing for tabla beat science as well, don't know if you'll have heard them, if not it's worth a listen. Still need to find out what this sound is - sounds like flicking down on the syahi - any suggestions?

Any kind of medium, whether it be book or video or audio can be helpful for learning. Obviously, the optimal way is through a live human being. But, this is the same person who has been advertising on other tabla web sites as well. Not so cleverly disguised as a genuine message.

Dear 'anonyous',
I am not simply speaking of "optimal" means. There are certain disciplines, like the various genres of Indian classical music that, I believe, can only be learned through personal dialogue. This may be even more critical in the beginning stages where important physical habits are trained and developed. If a student is interested in developing a limited light classical or fusion repertoire then a virtual audio or video medium might suffice for mimicking a particular style.
For the more advanced student, books, CD's, performance videos and the like are all excellent references. I own quite a few myself and refer to them often.
