Perfection! I love the sound of tabla as well; George mastered a great many Indian musical instruments, didn't he? :) Tambura, tabla, sitar... he was a talented man. :nod:

Yeah, he kind of had to touch other ones. In Indian musical tradition, the student learns the theories by starting off playing supporting instruments behind the pundit. Ravi Shankar probably put him on tambura first; that's the drone instrument you hear behind most Indian classical music.

The tabla, I guess, is more or less like a small timpani; it's pitched and has a flexible center and hide rim. That's why it has that distinct sound of drops of water melodically blooping into a jug of liquid. I've never personally played the tabla, but I've seen it up close and personal at a Tibetan shop in a town in my state called Chatham. I almost bought them, but they were like $150 and I figured I'd better spend my money on something more important.

I also played sitar for a while, but I got frustrated with the fragile tuning and started not having time for it and it got in the way, so I sold it.

George and Ravi Shankar would practice the sitar rigorously learning ragas through the Indian Do Re Mi: the scale is always measured by Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Dha Ni (Sa). Notice also that George's son's name is there; he did that on purpose but changed the pronunciation of the name to sound like "Danny".

It's interesting stuff to learn. :)

that's really interesting.
so Indian classical musicians are experts on most everything.

Music there is a gift from the gods and to play it is homage to them. It's a spiritual practice I should like to think.
