Turkish split fingers – from the beginners to advanced
« on: January 24, 2016, 12:25:50 PM »
The Turkish split fingers technique maybe highly requested in between beginning darbouka players, when they feel to become intermediate.
So let us look some videos on this topic – and let’s have a look, how advance of skills may progress.

For the beginners first it’s needed to explain, what the idea of this method is.

Here’s the best explanation you can find in web:

So, you have learned it and practised it for a time… You now are common with the new playing technique and feel soon to become righteous an intermediate drummer – but: Stop it! – It’s only on your mind how you’re good: Record something you’re playing and start to hear yourself: Your strokes are somewhat weak and the patterns mostly out of time!!! – Welcome to the bloody loser level! ;-)

That may last for a long time, frustrating - and a really lot of beginners refuse on this step.
Hear those samples of some young men - low skilled, but highly motivated:





So please, don’t worry: It’s an absolutely normal state of your progress. Don’t stop and go on!!!

The reason of the affection is, that your mind may recognize all that stuff first. You literally learned it, there are no more secrets – but your skills are still limping, because they are on your mind only, but have to be unconscious! It takes a lot of time of practising until your fingers find it’s places itself… - Some hint, how to come over that status faster:
Try to practise the needed techniques and patterns by the way. - Knock the table while you’re watching TV; do it with your knees under the table in bureau at the working time; at urban transport regarding daily newspaper or looking what’s the people around etc. Let it your fingers do, only… – All you need are new reflexes, that’s all!
Good luck!
