request: commonly used words for instructing

Posted: Tue Nov 06, 2007 10:57 pm



I need to generate a list of words / phrases to learn in Thai. Here is what I have so far:

stick
bead
left
right
hands
fingers
thumbs
arms
play in the center / halfway / edge
relaxed
relax
legato stick motion
taps
accents
listen in
play clean
stop playing dirty
play it again
last time
don't do that
do it like that
start here
finish here

I am sure I will think of many more. Any suggestions?

Thankfully they use the English words for all the rudiments!

split? I'm sure that would work for the tenors and basses, I'm sure they already know by the [insert number] that they split the exercise but maybe you want them to do the the 2nd time, or the first time? I think yelling split will be something useful to learn in the long run.

Anything with flams I think they might need to know low or quiet and accent , or just get "grace" out of the way since you probably already know note. Consistent/Inconsistent might help with regard to their first attack and their next attack.

i would throw in some dynamical word.. like quieter.. louder.. words to that effect. faster and slower if they already weren't mentioned. just in case. are you needing the just for playing or is marching included in your endeavor?

Yea, is marching any part of your instruction? If so, might want to have like feet together or feet apart. Mark time should be something you might want to learn, even though I'm sure all these aspects are covered before they get to you.

You gotta learn numbers in Thai, so they know what measure to start on, or tempos to work with.

knuckle
thumb
index finger
ring finger
...etc

also,
tighten
fat
loose
dirty
clean
chops
muscles
good
excellent
PRACTICE

Stick heights (lower, higher, an inch off the head etc)
Use wrists/fingers only
Play together
Sweeps
Faster/slower

...and oh,

Good job!

drive the feet - used to remind them that the feet should be activating and driving the rhythm in the hands. Lazy feet = bad timing and boring performance perception
grab the skeleton rhythm - used to remind them to drive thru roll passages by referencing the speed of the rhythm that the rolls are built on
fill up the harness - used to remind them to project to the audience and keep upper body posture aggressive
have the same hands/brians on - meaning that you have to play/react like your center or section leader
man-it-up - means to stop being a wuss. To go to the next level and get bigger than yourself
Iv'e got sXe!!!!

number system in thai is fairly easy to learn. if you look into it, you'll see.
