This version of Bapang Slisir lulls the audience into thinking it's nothing more than a short, repeated melody with a simple on-beat melody. Oh nice and relaxing, they'll think. Until we get loud and throw in a couple of ANGSEL breaks. And then we totally surprise them with the rhythmic unison of the NGELIK section! ("1--23-4-5-high-middle-low-middle...")
Beginner level 4-note melody with gaps, as well as full 8-note melody. Everybody plays the ANGSEL the same way, and we all do the NGELIK together. (Advanced students should check our Bapang Slisir Kotekan video)
This KOTEKAN decoration can be used over the Kids version, and also the regular arrangement.
The following NGELIK (means small, ie high keys) section is NOT the Kids version. It's the regular one my teacher prefers (there are many slight variations, as your Youtube research will uncover). Later we'll add a KOTEKAN option for the NGELIK, and a separate low melody called GDE (means big, ie low keys). Full disclosure, this is actually movement 1 of a 3 part composition. The good news is it's also part 3, so there's only the slow movement to learn.
