i have a few questions about learning. i bought a stringed instrument called tambur, a few months ago. without a teacher i studied up to now.
- do you think there is a wrong way to play & learn to play an instrument? if so, is it easy to rectify the mislearned methods?
- i have no particular reason to learn with or without a teacher. do you think it is crucial to have a teacher? or the other way around, do you think there is indispensable elements of self-learning?
@SDF made me realize my server has been doing nothing other than hosting my blog, for almost a year. oh machine, little machine! i'm gonna overwhelm you. i have to go to sleep now, though.
i'm not sure, but i think something very interesting going on at the end of the record in the previous post: hafız kemal bey unexpectedly shouts "yaşa!" and someone around probably finds it a little loud. then perse who probably is not fluent in turkish says "ne bağırıyor yahu?" in a weird intonation. and someone completely different says "ne biliyim anlamadım".
an absolute easter egg.
taking the previous post for example, the specified makam is neva, the performer is hafız kemal bey and you can actually hear the beforementioned words are used to complete the melodic sentences. here is the lyrics used to improvise on, in this record:
feryad idiyor bir gül içün bülbül-i şeyda
mecnun'u gönül zencirine bağladı leyla
her zerrede bin aşk eseri oldu hüveyda
sevmekle sevilmek ezeli maksad-ı aksa
kanun-u mehabbet idiyor hükmünü icra
