Hello, my name is Tareq Al Jundi from i3zif.com. today in lesson #11 we will continue and study an application on Sama'ee Thaqeel scale, it is a very popular mowasha7 (sung poetry), and most of us have heard it, it is Lamma Bada Yatathanna acrostic by Saleem Al Masri. Look here, as we said Sama'ee Thaqeel is 10/8 it is from Hijaz scale, Hijaz Re *Play music* , a reminder: Re *Play music* ♭ Mi *Play music*Fa # *Play music* Sol *Play music* La *Play music* ♭ Si *Play music* Do *Play music* Re *Play music* look here at the note we have , the first bar notice it only has 1 scale with a time =1, and we learned this before, it is called Lavari or pick up, same thing, no difference. I want to read it rhythmically so we understand the doubling by perspective, and how to deal with croche as the basic note. We have here Ta Ta Tati Tati Tati Tati Tati Ta Ta I want to read it with notes Re Sol La Si Do Si Si La La Sol Sol Fa Sol Re second bar Sol La Si Do Si Si La La Sol Sol Fa Sol , notice the last Sol, is 2 notes. And this is Tati, next, La Si Do Re Si La La Sol Sol Fa Sol this note, I want to read from this bar, the third one Do Re Si La La Sol Si La Si La this sign here, if we analyze it, it is 1/2 then 1/2 then 1/4, simply leave the dot as it, and imagine removing a line from every note, we have dotted noir, then croche so it makes it 1 1/2 +1/2 so it is Ta Ti Ta Ti, so when I read the third bar it is Do Re Ta Ti Tati Tati Ta. Next starting from La the last scale in the Bar La Fa Sol Mi Re Mi Re Mi Fa Re Mi Re Do Re Si La La Sol Sol fa Sol. And here we have the Fa #. Which we will talk about, we know that this is Do cord, and this is Sol cord. This is Sol cord, we have the Fa # like this, go down, this is the note with the second finger, next to the wrist this is Sol *Play music* and Fa # comes after *Play music* on Do cord. We will talk about it. And picks are the same as written, the 1.5 is down, and 1/2 is up. Now play from the top, 3 4 *Play music* again *Play music* next *Play music* notice that the same phrase is repeated twice, now from the last scale, and notice how the musical phrase starts from the last scale that is why we have the Lavari or pick up, look at the last scale from the second bar *Play music* now from the top *Play music* next La Fa Sol Mi Re Mi Re Mi Fa Re *Play music* again *Play music* Fa #, and the second Sol is here. Now in the upcoming lessons we will talk about shifting and sliding. But this small note here exists, which is why our thumb , it is very important to have it in this position for the shifting, because here we play *Play music* again from the top, the whole thing *Play music* we have to practice this track and start reading, not only rhythm and note apart, but read them together, try to practice Re Sol La Si Do Si Si La La Sol Sol Fa Sol Re Sol La Si Do Si Si La La Sol Sol Fa Sol La Si Do Re Si La La Sol Sol Fa Sol La Fa Sol Mi Re Mi Re Mi Fa Re Mi Re Do Re Si La La Sol Sol Fa Sol .
This is one of the most important acrostics, and very well known, based on Sama'ee Thaqeel scale. You will find many acrostics and tracks based on this scale. Practice real slowly and try to find other recordings for it and listen to them.
