The Indian tabla is a difficult pair of hand drums, but by no means should it be considered inaccessible. For those who have gone through the introductory Learning the Tabla, this book/ CD set is an ideal next step. It contains much new material which is appropriate for an intermediate level student.

This set also expands upon material that was introduced in the first set by giving new tals, and their thekas, as well as a more advanced kaida. There is also a discussion of the ancient barrel drum known as the pakhawaj and a discussion of pakhawaj material that can be played on the tabla.
