In this lesson we are introduced to the Sama’ee Thaqeel rhythm, and Mr. Al Jundi
explains some of the rhythmic symbols like Dum, Tak and Es. He else explains
-.division by 2 which is the opposite of doubling
Hello my name is Tareq Al Jundi from i3zif.com. in today's lesson we will be introduced to the Sama'ee Thaqeel SCALE. And do not forget what we learned last lesson, how we started to double by perspective because we will use it today. Before we continue on doubling by perspective, we will talk about Sama'ee Thaqeel scale and it is a 10/8 scale, now may be the first time we read anything over 8, all the previous scales we read were over 4. We will talk about some rhythmic symbols, we have Ta with the stem up, we will call it Dum, it has a strong tone, Dum. Ta with the stem down we will call it Tak , weak tone. We have rest which we call Es. Let us take a look, we wrote the Sama'ee Thaqeel scale at first 10/4, we have 10/4 written here, Dum then Es Es Tak Es Dum Dum Tak Es Es. The scale only reads on one line, not like other instruments that read on multiple lines, here it only reads on one. We have Dum Es Es Tak Es Dum Dum Tak, Es Es Dum Es Es Tak Es Dum Dum Tak Es Es. A bar that contains ten scales. If we look here, this 10/4 scale we want to divide it by 2, we have here this Noir note, we want to divide it by half, it will look like this instead of a noir, the opposite of what we did last lesson, we divided instead of multiplied. It became 10/8, nothing is different, y? we will talk about it now.
Look here, I will read it, look how everything looks different, notes look different, the rest changed to what we already know which is 1/2, okay, and Dum and Tak stayed the same. So now we have 10/8: Dum Es Es Tak Es Dum Dum Tak Es again Dum Es Es Tak Es Dum Dum Tak Es Es. What is the difference between over 4 and over 8? When we used to read over 4, noir was our basic note, the 1 scale, when we read over 8 the croche is the 1 scale, its time is one, so noir is its multiple with time of 2. Let us look here we have some examples. We have the croche, its time is 1. Here the noir will have a time of 2, if I have croche I will read it as Ta. If I have noir I will read it as Ta. Look here we have the rest with time of 1/2, rest of the croche, it now has the tie of 1. The TiFi as you see, those 2 with the 2 lines they have the time of 1/2 croche, so this unit is 1/2 + 1/2 =1 which is Tati. The one with the three lines is now Ta Fa TiFi because each one is 1/4 croche . so here we have example #1, we have 10/8 Sol Rest Rest Do Rest Sol Sol Do Rest Rest. Croche is now one, so I will play it now *Play music* again *Play music* like this, it is now the basic unit.
Let us look at example #2, here we have Ta because this is croche, then Tati Tati, then Ta rest Tati Tati Ta, again , we will be a bit confused in the beginning because we have grown accustomed to reading over 4, but now is the time to read over 8 because we have been introduced to Sama'ee Thaqeel, and we will be introduced to the Sama'ee template , which is a Tarab template, and is written over 8, it is very widely used. Now let us look at example #2 and how to play it *Play music*
