RE: kosmic renaissance - sax looping, tablas, etc

Yes, but despite learning from videos and books, I am a sloppy, fake
tablas player....I just transferred my fast guitar playing and sense of
rhythm to fast fingers on the tablas skins.  It gets me by. :)    In no
way do I claim to be a real tablas player, nor a sitar player for that
matter.   Here are sample of my half-assed tablas and sitar playing.
