TeenTaal Rela - Help Needed with variations

Postby singhhh_ap » Fri Jun 10, 2016 6:36 pm

I learned this Rela long time back and need some help in correcting variations. I have lost the paper so going from my memory. Please be aware that its not in Matras.

Here are some solutions/corrections to the ones that didn't look right to me:

Variation 3: Changed "(DhirDhir)x4" to "(DhirDhir)x3"

Dha-tir Kittak Dhirdhir Kittak (DhirDhir)x3 KitTak
Dha-tir Kittak Dhirdhir Kittak
(Dha-Tete Girnag)x2

Ta-Tir KitTak TirTir Kittak (TirTir)x3 KitTak
Dha-tir Kittak Dhirdhir Kittak
(Dha-Tete Girnag)x2

Variation 4:

Dha-tir Kittak Dhirdhir Kittak {(DhirDhir)x3 KitTak}x3
Dha-tir Kittak Dhirdhir Kittak (DhirDhir)x3 KitTak
Dha-tir Kittak Dhirdhir Kittak
(Dha-Tete Girnag)x2

Ta-Tir KitTak TirTir Kittak {(TirTir)x3 KitTak}X3
Dha-tir Kittak Dhirdhir Kittak (DhirDhir)x3 KitTak
Dha-tir Kittak Dhirdhir Kittak
(Dha-Tete Girnag)x2

Variation 6: Haven’t ever heard the bol DhirDhirKatKat. Would be hard to play at rela speed unless you to play katkat with split fingers like tete. You could use DhirDhirKat- instead; a more traditional bol (just substitute DhirDhirKatKat if you prefer).

Dha-tir Kittak (DhirDhirKat-)x3
Dha-tir Kittak Dhirdhir Kittak
(Dha-Tete Girnag)x2

TaTirkit Tak (TirTirKat-)x3
Dha-tir Kittak Dhirdhir Kittak
(Dha-Tete Girnag)x2

Variation 7: Used DhirDhirKat- as in V6. This is just the standard dohra variation of V6.

{Dha-tir Kittak (DhirDhirKat-)x3}x3
Dha-tir Kittak Dhirdhir Kittak
(Dha-Tete Girnag)x2

{TaTirkit Tak (TirTirKat-)x3}x2
Dha-tir Kittak (DhirDhirKat-)x3
Dha-tir Kittak Dhirdhir Kittak
(Dha-Tete Girnag)x2

Variation 8: Not sure about this one. (DhirDhir KittakDha)x2 would be virtually impossible to play at fast speed without a pause after dha. One possible solution is below.

(DhirDhir KittakDha-)x2 DhirDhirKittak
(DhirDhir)x3 Kittak
(Dha-Tete Girnag)x2

(TirTirKatKat Ta)x2 TirTirKitTak
(DhirDhir)x3 Kittak
(Dha-Tete Girnag)x2

Variation 11:

(GirNag Dha TeteKete Ghere TereTere)X3 (GhirNag Dha-Tete)X2
(KitNag Ta-Tete KeteKere TereTere)X2
GirNag Dha-Tete KeteGhere TereTere
(GhirNag Dha-Tete)X2
