Summary of Lesson 13

In this lesson you learned some pretty important stuff. 

  • You learned that the foundation for most fast beats is tiri *ti ta

  • You learned about something weird which I call an almost pause.

  • You learned how to play the Main Fast Off-beat. 

  • You might have even been lucky to learn the connecting beat that goes with it.

  • You learned how to create "breaks" in the fast part of the kirtan to make devotees dance.

Homework Assignment: Learn all this stuff by practicing until you can play it comfortably. When you have it down, you're ready for the next lesson!
