Hi, it's Masmoudi saghir (so called Baladi) both.

The base is:

D-D-+-S-D---S---| played with strong (commonly the right) hand

1st song uses a filled form:

D-D-tkS-D-tkS-tk|

2nd song is a "walking" form (with bridge):

D-D-k-S-D-k-S-tk|

D = Dum
S = Slap ("Pa" - You might play a loud Tek instead, if you are beginner)
- = Time marker (Rest)
+ = Pulse marker (Rest)
t = Tek
k = Ka
