Review of Aslahan’s Taming Your Zills

  1. That sounds really useful. I’m usually terrible at actually working with DVDs, but something with short, self-contained lessons would be much easier to fit into a practise session and still have time to work on my other stuff.

    If you struggle with memorising rhythms and patterns, you might also like Dr George Sawa’s approach (maybe you’ve seen this already) – https://youtu.be/leE1kOvw8-g
    After listening carefully to the sagat in recorded Egyptian music, it does seem to me that Egyptian percussionists mostly play the way he teaches, playing almost entirely gallops and runs with occasional accents, fitted very effectively to the phrasing of the music (and with judicious variation of the cymbal sound).
