Mukhrā 3, also known as a pick-up, is commonly used to transition from madhya lay to drut lay or to sustain drut lay, in most cases. The bols for the "pick-up" are:

Tā ti ra Tā ti ra Tā -

One can also replace "ti" with "te" (middle finger striking the center of the syahi on the dayan head, producing a nonresonant tone), as in fast speeds, transitining between "Tā", "te", and "ra" is easier.

There are two variations introduced. The first is playing the mukhrā back-to-back.

Tā ti ra Tā ti ra Tā - Tā ti ra Tā ti ra Tā -

The second variation is using "starter bols" or bols that precede the mukhrā

Tā - Tā - Tā - Tā - Tā ti ra Tā ti ra Tā -
