Given the amazingly deep and diverse group that frequents these forums I have some hope that someone here can help me with an esoteric little challenge.
I am studying tabla and there seems to be a mismatch between the names of the boles (strokes) used in the book I'm studying and the names of the boles used in the sample set. There may or may not be some missing boles. For example there is no Tin in the sample set so how can I play Tintal? May be there it is there but called something different. Or maybe there is something that is close enough to at least approximate the various thekas. In any case...
The book I am studying lists the tabla boles as: NA, TIN, TIT, TA, TI, RI, THA, and TUN.
It lists the bayan boles as: GA, DHI, GHE, KA, THI, and (asperated) GA.
My sample set does not identify which drum plays the sample. It includes: DAH, DAM, GA, GE1, NAL, NAM, TA, NAL2, NAM2, TA2, TUN1, and TUN2.
There isn't much overlap. Are they using different names for any of the same sounds? Can anyone provide me with some correspondences or suggestions about where to look?
