and energy in the camp.

We are thrillsd with the positive feedback so far from our customers and
feel very rewarded from the hard work we’ve put in throughout 2009.

We’ve had a little problem though and we’re wondering if you can

A number of our members have expressed that the current price point
for The Blueprint to Dhol Mastery is a little un-managable.

How do you feel?

our lessons and information, but first we need to know what works
and doesn’t work for you all.

1)   What exactly is the Blueprint to Dhol Mastery?

The Blueprint (as its name suggests) is a comprehensive homestudy course which will teach you everything you need to know in order to empower yourself to master the dhol. We understand that you want to improve and enhance your ability but also, have your dhol playing sound unique and distinct which is exactly why we have provided this platform.

From rope tightening, tuning, beat counting, syncing with other instruments as well as an ongoing coaching plan you can be sure that the Blueprint to Dhol Mastery will be your roadmap to dhol success.

2)   I’ve already seen all the howtoplaydhol.com videos

That’s great to hear! Although the Blueprint will review some of the beat / compilations from the videos, it will provide you with greater complex and more enhanced beat cycles as well as the introduction of compilations never seen before. There are plenty of new beats that you will be exposed to.

3)   I know most of the beats you have taught me, what else is there to learn?

We just talked about the new beats that will be introduced, above and beyond the free video lessons. Most importantly you will learn a ‘full-circle’ approach to mastering the dhol which goes beyond just the beats. There is a lot of content which we simply can’t upload onto a video that is why we have chosen this particular format. Such content includes:

-       Grip control for greater flexibility and perseverance

-       Overcoming the usual mistakes made by novices when tuning the dhol

-       How to care for your dhol to ensure its longevity

-       The creation of effective musical partnerships alongside other instruments / songs

-       Tips for effective speed control and mastering the timing through our unique methodology

-       Plus SO MUCH MORE it will literally BLOW YOUR MIND

We would like to thank each and every one of our participants in the competition that was held at the beginning of the month.For those who were lucky enough to win we have heard some extremely exciting stories about how beneficial the training has been and the team would love to share this with all of our readers.

I have only looked at the first three lessons and this is unbelievable. I used to learn privately for a year and I’ve already surpassed the lessons I was taught back then. I wish I got my hands on this stuff sooner!

I actually won this for my two sons who are learning the dhol from howtoplaydhol’s online videos. Although all I hear is the sound of the dhol when I come back from work, they have become so much more passionate and have improved exponentially.

I’ll put you out of suspense. Here we go with the beats…

So we start of at 00:10 with a 32 Beat Tirkit including a thora which looks a little like this:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Dha Take TIR KIT Kin Take TIR KIT
9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16
Dha Take TIR KIT Kin Take TIR KIT
17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24
Dha Take TIR KIT Kin Take TIR KIT
25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32
Dha Ge Na Dha Ge Na Dha

This ends at roughly 00:15 then we kick off the chaal which looks like this:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Dha Na Na Na Na Dha Dha Na
9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16
Dha Na Na Na Na Dha Dha Na
17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24
Dha Na Na Na Na Dha Dha Na
25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32
Dha Na Na Na Na Dha Dha Na
33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40
Dha Na Na Na Na Dha Dha Na
41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48
Dha Na Na Na Na Dha Dha Na
49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56
* * * * * * * *
57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64
Dha Ge Na Dha Ge Na Dha *

As you can see that the traditional 8 cycles of chaal has been reduced down to 6, and in the space of the last two bars we have a complete rest followed by the Thora: Dha Ge Na Dha Ge Na Dha.

Continually practice until you get the timing right and it should all piece together. Enjoy!
