ok guys and girls i wanna see some home made solo's none of that studio recorded cack.

I wanna see videos that uve made where u just sit and play.

Doesnt matter wether its to a song or improvised...mine is improvised and ull probably notice as there are loads of mistakes.

And it doesnt matter about the quality of the video...anything from the top notch video cameras to phone cameras (like mine)

Anyways to start it off ill link you to mine...its on my myspace page.

I don't play with him any longer. Last tour I did with him was last June in Spain.

I'm gonna be doing some stuff with Janiva Magness, as well as my own group Playground Slap feat. Mike Keneally (Frank Zappa's last guitarist). There's some vids up of us on my YouTube.

From what I can tell, and correct me if I'm wrong, that's a Darbouka, not a Tabla. Table come in pairs- a small drum (wooden) and a larger one(metal). The heads have a small pad (puddi) which leads me to believe that your drum there is not of the Tabla family.

Nice playing BTW. I couldn't do that.....

you're correct. from what i understand, depending on where it was made it's also called a dumbek, but then again there's a billion names for goblet drums (depending on region). from what i've read, the goblet drum was believed to be invented before the chair!

First thanks for your feedback I always apprieciate someone taking the time!
I am pretty sure the drum is a Tabla.
I got the drum as a gift from a foreign exchange student from Saudi Arabia whom was renting a room from my mom some years ago.
I remember asking him a few times to stick its name in my head so as to not forget what it was called...and he refered to it as the Tabla drum.
However I have never looked it up or researched it for myself.

I'm a congero/timbalero...this Tabla being a gift grabbed my attention with its way of having such a thick bass tone that lingers...among all the other tones.

There's a few more solos up on my YouTube page http://youtube.com/billraydrums but really check out the music......That's much more interesting than the solo stuff!!

You are a very musical soloist. You have fluidity in movement.
I really dig the funk fusion grooves you do...the displacment of accents all in solid time.
I sent you a myspace friend request.

I thought this was really cool. A lot of really nice changes in it. What is that cymbal sitting over your floor tome, even on the phone recording it sounds sweet.

Cheers

Firstly; Nice playing!

I think maybe your friend was mistaken about the type of drum, as the size, head type, and apparent lug configuration suggests it's definitely not a tabla, but a darbuka or doumbek. Here's some pics for comparison.
It was hard to tell for sure what the rest of your drum looks like as the video is very dark, but based on what we can see, it couldn't be a traditional tabla.

Tabla set (small drums, always in pairs, played in a seated position on floor)


doumbek/darbuka/goblet drum (generally metal or ceramic)
