This post is not really about physical percussion but about thinking in rhythm and its benefits. As percussionists, you are used to running a rhythm in your head. This post is about how that may be useful for the thinking process.

Rohit, we tabla players do this all the time. We even have certain
Ustads and Pandits who would chant out rhythm patterns thru their
mouth while hand/fingers keeping track of certain "different" rhythmic
track. This is very common in Tabla world. What is umcommon however is
speaking in specific rhythimic tempo and playing something else. So
far I know of one guy in Goa (from the older times...I forgot his name
at this moment). Hope to chat some more on this...later.
