Hello my name is Tareq Al Jundi from i3zif .com. today in lesson #8, I will give you a break, no Longas, we will play a beautiful track called Husseini Dance, it is by Jameel Bek Tanbouri as well. It is a dance, and we will talk about Husseini scale. As you can see, it written as Bayat, ♭ Si, and ½ ♭ Mi as written in the scale. But, what is Husseini scale? it is an alternative name for Bayat scale, and I will tell you a piece of information that will come up in the future, we have something called scale function, which means if you were playing Bayat, especially in taqseem *Play music* , and the first note is very important which is Re, if the second note was emphasized which is Sol, *Play music* notice the emphasis on Sol, this is the scale function , which some people call Oshaq scale, the emphasis on the third note, ♭ Si , *Play music* and I go back to Re. this is one function, another function is Husseini, I start in Re, *Play music* the next emphasis is on La *Play music* and I stop, this scale is sometimes called Husseini, and it is widely popular in North Iraq, called Dajd, or Lawook, it is very Kurd oriented. *Play music* and some people call Bayat Husseini, which is bayat La, same as Bayat Re, except we ascend one cord *Play music* this is called Bayat Husseini. But the Husseini we are talking about is a function of Bayat.
Now let us take a look at the track in hand, we have Ta Fa tiFI TaTi Ta Fi TaTi Ta Fa TiFi Ta Ta Fa TifI Ta,I will play the first 4 bars, and notice the importance of La note *Play music* first phrase is over, and the composer closed on La. This is why it is called Bayat Husseini, it is called Husseini because of the emphasis on La. *Play music* Next, Ta Fa TiFi Ta Fa TiFi Ta Fa TiFi Ta, same as previous phrase, but the part is repeated *Play music* notice the bridge I am playing, La Sol La Re La Sol La Re *Play music* , I am not hopping, not doing this *Play music* no *Play music* next Ta Ti Fi Ta *Play music* again *Play music* 2 bars identical , Ta TiFi Ta Fa TiFi Ta Fa TiFi Ta Fa TiFi Ta Fa TiFi Ta Fa TiFi Ta Fi TaTi *Play music* notice the descending scale Sol Do Si Si La La Sol Sol Fa Fa Mi Mi Re Re Do , every note is repeated *Play music* Do finishes up, Re Mi Fa Mi Fa Sol Mi Do *Play music*up, then Ta Fi TaTi , let us play the first verse. We can conclude a small scale from the first verse, we can play *Play music* last bar is Ta Fi TaTi *Play music* a very beautiful track filled with class. The second verse, we have Ta Fa TiFi Ta Fa Ti Fi Ta *Play music* ascending scale Do to Do, and Si is ½ ♭.
Next exercise, Fa Mi Re Do Si Do Re Mi same logic, half position. We have Do, *Play music* if we play Re right, ♭ Mi will come afterwards right, and Fa right. So this finger is always important. Here is Re *Play music* we have Fa Mi Re Do *Play music* again *Play music* notice that when I put all my fingers it is only a matter of sliding fingers, I don’t do this *Play music*I do *Play music* I only slide my fingers . next part Si Do Re Mi *Play music* which results in the same as exercise #1, Fa Mi Re Do Si Do Re Mi *Play music*and notice the pick, down up down up as it comes *Play music*let us practice faster *Play music*speed is always conditioned with having every note clear while playing, just like speaking with clear letters. It is a problem when someone speaks fast and we don't understand them, same thing here, speed is not important to do this *Play music*this is wrong, if I want speed it has to be like *Play music* gradually . for people to hear every note when playing. See you next lesson.
