Learn to Play > Lesson 14:
Cool Variations

Remember this

Fast beats are important, because that's when the devotees start to jump up and down in the kirtan. However, the build-up until you get to to the fast beats is equally important, and something we will discuss later in this course.

In Lesson 13 we learned that the foundation of the fast beats is this: tiri *ti ta. We also learned a number system, where you can say that another way to get the timing right: “one-two *THREE four.”

Now, in Lesson 14, we're going to build upon that. We're gonna show you how to make a simple (and pretty cool) variation of the "Main Fast Off-beat" using the same foundation that you studied in the last lesson.

This is going to be a pretty short lesson, but you will definitely need to spend your time practicing.
