Yeh the best tabla players in the world are still 'students' even though they teach hundreds of students.

Tabla requires dedication and serious passion for the instrument...

if ur gna make a living out of playing tabla u gota love it!!! :TH:

Ive been playing tabla for 13 yrs since the age of 3 and now im 16 years old and im still just a student and have a longgggggg way to go...

:|

Tabla cant be learnt overnight as it needs years of riyaaz (practice) and the sooner you get a guru/ustad to teach you the better... Its better to start at a young age as the hands of a child are able to adapt well to the tabla and the child can learn stuff quickly... just like learning to walk.

:nihungsmile: Good luck learning tabla.. keep the spirit of indian classical music alive!!! :T:

U definately need teacher to learn taba. How can a website tell u r getting right sound out of tabla and-tusi tabla sur ch kive karida ae-. Moreover evry ustad on the web will gve its own kaida for a tal if u folow dat all u will mngle up. Ucan play any tal but only ustad will tell u how much riyaaz u still need. Som bols read same but sound differntly so may be wrong wthout ustad guidance

yeh i agree..

You cannot expect to play good by reading books and doin research on the internet...

You even need to get the basics right like theka of different taals.... and it can only be decided if ur playin good enough or not by a good ustad/guru. Thats y even the basic stuff like theka's and basic beginers compositions sound good wen played by a good tabla players hands! :TH:

    • Is this how we want our bretheren to live ? https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/fruit-pickers-fight-back-at-italian-mafia-slave-farms-pznnhrfzq?fbclid=IwAR2PTrOQhMmEFpwOiWppvZ4hbQkq16zKKr0Gl2k8kJGkbRuMPwOle5y2E38
    • they are the ones who started the little metal kirpan on the kangha , maybe somebody should explain to them you cannot do ifazat of anyone with your kanga...
    • Sat Sri Akaal.  So for late reply.  Yes search up searchgurbani.com. Once there select the 3 line (options) on top right corner of page. Select your Granth (Dasam Granth). Then if u want English / Punjabi index. ALL BAANIAS will appear. Select Att Chandi Charitr.  NOTE: Dasam Granth here is much better than getting an app, especially for translation. 
    • Yeah heard many variations of this sakhi. Do you know what the actual source is? The point I was making is, throughout ithiaas, when Maharaaj seeked to change something, especially as big of a sanskaar as this, things have been clearer. I just find it odd that there isn't any Bani with the Sakhi - and - that a marriage ceremony came up only at the time of Guru Ramdas Ji. Big gap. Something doesn't quite add up. Hmm possibly with regards to the Pandit, although Vedic Saloks whilst walking around a Gutka? Idk about that.   Nobody is fooling themselves. For some reason, and I don't actually know why, you want the fire to be representitive of Agni Devta. A fire can symbolise many things. Meanings and definitions change (as is the case for many things within Sikhi itself); it doesn't necessarily mean it's anthropomorphized or personified in the way you want it to be. This is the same level of reasoning people use to reject the use of jyot (and other practises in common) in Gurdwaras.   I've always said, that if Namdharis were normal Sikhs, they would be one of the most rehitvaan, shardavaan Sampardas we have. Their Maryada is solid and they have many good qualities which they put into practise. Plus their Nitnem is big. I've been to Bhaini Sahib and it's really quite a sight. They have this little building where non-stop Jaap/Simran has been going on since like the 1920s. SGGSJ was prakash in one of the buidings as well; was some kinda of triple Akhand Paath going on. And fyi Ajeet, they do believe in Amrit Sanchar and Panj Kakkar, however they don't wear the Kirpan - they were banned from keeping Shastar during Brit rule and for some unbeknownst reason continued to stay without them. They have kept many Puratan traditions going. It's a shame they've fallen in other areas. And before anyone says it, no I am not promoting Namdharis or letting their manmat views off.
    • If I started this topic why does it bother u ? U probably thought I worship radasoami thete are so many fake babe in sikhi to making up fake storylines and confusing khalsa panth
