6.1 - holes after generating sound correctly from the Ney
Mr Rida gives a few exercises on using the left and right hand in playing the musical note, while considering the order of fingers. He explains to us the difference between Staccato and Legato on the Ney.
Welcome, I am Rida Bdeer, the Egyptian Nay player from i3zif.com.today we will talk about an exercise on the Nay for the front holes. We will start with exercise #1 *Play music*, this was ascending, now descending *Play music*, now both ascending and descending *Play music*, this was ascending and descending. This scale is Do Re Mi Fa Sol Sol Fa Mi Re Do while considering the order of fingers, starting from top to bottom; meaning if you start from bottom, you will not generate a sound or anything. Order is important, and I would like to draw the attention of students that the order must be bottom to top, or top to bottom; if I am descending, means that the below holes are open, and when ascending, the above holes are open, like this *Play music* doesn’t work to open the above holes and play, nothing comes out, it has to be in order, top to bottom or bottom to top. Let us try a different variation of the exercise *Play music* this was ascending, now descending *Play music* now we have two forms ; Legato which is the continuous sound, continuing all the way ascending and descending , and the other form is the sporadic sound, called the B-Staccato where the sound is discontinuous, tum tum tum tum called B-Staccato. Legato is continuous sound Tararara. We are introduced to those forms, in Italian language B-staccato Meaning sporadic is English, and Legato in Italian language means continuous in English. Let us take this exercise again with punctuation *Play music* then descending *Play music* . before every exercise we have to start with all the holes blocked, before any exercise we do this *Play music* what this does is tunes the Nay to get the right sound later on and prepares your lungs for playing, then we do this *Play music*.
