10.2- Exercise on Sama’ee Thaqeel rhythm
Mr. Tareq continues to explain the Sama’ee Thaqeel rhythm and analyzes it for
better understanding and gives an exercise on Sam’ee Thaqeel rhythm. He also
.emphasizes the importance of this rhythm and its existence in various Oud tracks
look here, same example but we re-wrote it while regrouping the notes, look we have Ta connected to Tati Tati why? Because Sama'ee scale consists of 3 parts that make up the ten, it is not all 10 croche in a bar, no it is 3 units, 4, then three. 10=3+4+3 . look how it is distributed, I wrote 3 here, first bar Dum Es Es this is one bar, second bar is Tak Es Dum Dum, the 4 bar, last bar is Tak Es Es. When the regrouping happens, we will connect every 3 scales together, then every 4, then every 3. Same example we played , how it became *Play music* this rest that once had the time 1 when it was over 4, now its time is 2, when we started reading over 8, the basic scale with time =1 is croche. Now exercise #3 and try to read it, we have Ta ( time=2) then Tati Ta Tati Tati Ta Rest. I want to play the first bar 3 4 *Play music* then Ta Ta ( one with time =2 then the other with time =1) Tati Tati Ta Ta, okay, now last part, the dotted noir, before its time was =1.5 , if we double it , 1.5*2=3 so it will be Ta. Now second bar *Play music* and notice that the picks stay the same, Tati is down up , Ta is down. Now third bar Ta Ta Fa TiFi Ta Tati Ta Ta notice how Ta Fa TiFi has 3 lines, let us play it *Play music* fourth bar Ta Tati Ta Ta Ta Fa TifI Ta Fa TiFi Ta rest. Let us play it 3 4 *Play music*
4th bar, sorry 5th bar, Ta, notice this note, don't be scared, it only means that we drop a line from each part, now it is Ta Fi, we saw it in Husseini dance, and we studied it and played Mawteni in the previous course. So now it becomes Ta Ta Fi Ta Ta Ta Fi Tati Ta , let us play it, I will read it again, Ta this is the first part, then Ta Fi Ta Ta this is not Tati, don't confuse it, it will take us about 2 classes to be able to tell them apart, again Ta Ta Fi Ta Ta Ta Fi Tati Ta rest, let us play it *Play music* next Ta Ta Fi Ta Ta Tati Ta Fa TiFi Tati Ta 3 4 *Play music* 2 3 .. let us play the entire exercise, follow me *Play music*rest *Play music*1 2 3 *Play music* 1 2 *Play music* 1 2 *Play music* 1 2 rest *Play music* rest *Play music* 1 2 3 this exercise and Sama'ee Thaqeel scale, we have to read it, and try clapping it, for example the first bar Ta Tati Ta Tati Tati Ta rest Ta Ta tati Tati Ta Ta Ta Ta Ta Fa tiFi Ta Ta Tati Ta Ta Ta Tati Ta Ta Ta Fa TiFi Ta Fa TiFi 1 2 rest Ta Ta Ta Fi Ta Ta Ta Fi Tati Ta rest Ta Ta Fi Ta Ta Tati Ta Fa TiFi Tati Ta it is very important to feel it, it is not hard, but this opens up almost 50% of Arabic musical compositions, it is very important to work on Sama'ee scale because things are getting more and more interesting. See you next class.
