Bhigi bhigi rato me Sargam Notes


HOW TO READ THE NOTATIONS

  • CAPITAL LETTERS
    = Shuddh Swars (Natural Notes)
  • small letters
    = Komal Swars (Flat Notes)
  • M with # [hash] or ^ [exponent]
    = Tivra Madhyam (M# / M^)
  • Letter/Alphabet ONLY
    = Medium Pitch/Normal blow on flute
  • Letter/Alphabet PRECEDED BY a ” . ” [full stop] or  a ” , ” [comma]
    = Low Octave Note/Softer blow on flute
  • Letter/Alphabet FOLLOWED BY a ‘ [single quote]
    = High Octave Note/harder blow on flute
  • Notes in { }
    = “murki” have to be played very fast without any pause
  • A Note in ( )
    = “kann swar” has to be just touched before moving on to the next note
  • A “~” between two Notes 
    = “meend”. That is, you have to glide from one note to another slowly to produce that wavy effect.
  • Few “….” (dots) after a note 
    = Play and hold that note

Flute used for producing Sargam: C middle

Jotting down the notations for this song taught me one more lesson. That is, not all that looks easy at first, is that easy. Sargam for this song turned out to be tricky. I had started with Shuddh Rishab (R) as the first note and completed the first half of the Sthayi part till “Kaisa Lagta Hai”. It was way back in 2015 when I left this song at here only. After that got busy with other Songs and sort of forgot to complete it. Now in 2020, when I received over a dozen request for this song, I felt embarrassed for uploading this song without completing it. But as they say, “better late than never”, so here I have finally completed this song. Following was the incomplete notation which I wrote earlier:

Bhigi bhigi rato me
RS SR R~SR,
mithi mithi baaton me,
RS SR R~SR,
aisi barsato me
DN SR SN NS,
kaisa lagta hai
DS DP SD…

But today, I found that Shuddh Rishab (R) is not the first correct note for this song. Because, when I had to play the next part – “Aisa lagta hai” in continuation with that sargam, I got stuck. Then I took Shuddh Madhyam (M) as the first note and succeeded to complete the Sthyai part, as: Bhigi | bhigi | rato | me = M G(M)G | G M | M G(M)G | G M. But then, again I got stuck at the music part (played on flute) just before the Antara. I was playing that flute part with Ma… as first note, but then moving on to the Antara with Ma was getting difficult (as the start of Sthayi and Antara is same in this song).

Then I played that flute part with Pa.. and moved on to Antara with Pa. And then to keep the sur similar with that of Antara I had to re-write the Sthyai part now, with Pancham (P) instead of Madhyam (M) as the first note. Hence, finally got to the following sargam for this song:

ANTARA 2:
(Same notations as for Antara 1)

Barkha se bacha loon tujhe
Seene se laga loon
Aa chhupa loon, aa chhupa loon x (2)
Dil ne pukara dekho
Rut ka ishara dekho
Uff yeh nazara dekho
Kaisa lagta hai bolo

Aisa lagta hai kuchh ho jayega
Mast pawan ke yeh jhonke saiyan
Dekh rahe ho, ho dekh rahe ho
Aisa lagta hai tum banke baadal
Mere badan ko bhigo ke mujhe
Chhed rahe ho, ho chhed rahe ho

  1. The song actually starts with the note Sa. Start the line “Bheegi Bheegi” with the notes “Sa ni ni Sa” (using Komal Ni) and you will get the rest parts easily. All the best!
