Yes, talk with your teacher . For outside resourcesAnyone have any reccomendations.
Should I just ask my teacher?
Is there a good video?
I would benefit more from HEARING it rather than reading it.
The top link is "Zills on Fire" - and I can recommend it highly. Spend the 20 bucks and buy the CD. You can put the selected rhythm on track repeat to your hearts content. Their booklet is quite good.
I give such workshops also in Germany 2-3 times a year. And, if there is enough interest, one can hire me for such a workshop in her own country/cityYour workshop sounds interesting Chryssanthi, but unfortunately I cannot come to Greece that soon
For example all slow rhythms (Chifteteli/Taksim, Masmoudi kabir etc.) as well as all very quick rhythms (Ayub, Malfouf etc.). Basically you can play zills at all 4/4 rhythms, especially Saidi and Ballady(Maqsoum). I'm talking of course about the Arabian system. The Turkish dancers play zills also at slow rhythms as well as at 9/8 Karshlama.But this thing you say about not playing zills to all rhythms.. This makes me wonder. Which rhythms are absolutely not-allowed to play zills to?
Yay! Dear Chryssanthi, so in the Arabic system you don't play zills to either the really slow o the really fast rhythms? Wow, I didn't know that, since I learned zill patterns to all rhythms, even slower and faster ones, have never used them thought to anything but 4/4 rhythms. I might be taking a workshop with you sometime if I have a chance to come to Germany or ofcourse have a chance to get you hereChryssanthi Sahar said:I give such workshops also in Germany 2-3 times a year.
