Hello weirdjews! I come to you with a question and discussion point. I learned how to blow the shofar when I was little and my dad (a rabbi) taught me that Teruah was wailing or moaning, three up and down notes. Shevarim was broken, shivering, a broken sound of 7-9 notes. I have always blown the shofar like that in synagogues. However in pretty much every other place where I have heard the shofar blown it is the other way round.
What say you all? Are there different traditions or have I just been doing it wrong my whole life? I have also lived in various different countries, so maybe that is a contributing factor?
