The Fast Off-beat Double
We use tok and tuk in the next two beats, so it
was high time you learned them.
In Lesson 13 and 14 we discussed the Main
Fast Off-beat and its variations.
If you haven't learned them yet, it's time to go back there and
learn them now. We are assuming from here on in that you have done
each of your lessons in the correct order and have mastered the
beats. You will need that now.
The Fast Off-beat Double is another kind of variation of the
Main Fast Off-beat. In the Main Fast Off-beat we are hitting a
tidha *Duk ta. Translated into the number system
that we have already discussed, we are hitting a ge on the 2 and
the 3, or perhaps even on the 1, 2 and 3.
With the Fast Off-beat Double, we do the same thing, but the
next mantra we hit a ki on those notes. Then the next
mantra we switch back to ges. So we switch back and forth,
one mantra we play it with ge, and the next mantra
we play it with ki.
the number system, it would work like this:
1-2, *3, 4 (hitting a soft ge on the 2 and a loud Ge on
1-2, *3, 4 (hitting a soft ki on the 2 and a loud
Ki on the 3)
And back again.
There's a mantra for that, of course. It looks like
titok *Tuk ta
And back and forth. And know what? I don't have a recording of
it. You just have to imagine how it sounds. If
you can play tidha
*Duk ta then you can play tidha
*Duk ta titok *Tuk ta
