For beginners, it is a common dilemma as to what to play and how to play Alankars (ornamentations)? So, whether we have to play only a set group of notes? Or, we can create / make our own Alankars for practice? For this, the answer is:
It is all about logical sequencing of notes. Which means, you can create numerous sets of Alankar yourself, if you understand the basic concept.
For example, an Alankar could be:
SR | RG | GM | MP | PD | DN | NS’
12 | 23 | 34 | 45 | 56 | 67 | 71′
In this grouping of two notes each, please see the logic that is to place the last note as first in the next group.
Let’s take another example:
SRMP | RGPD | GMDN | MPNS’
1245 | 2356 | 3467 | 4571′
Therefore, now if you can solve this, you will be able to create your own Alankars :
S’NPM | ND?G | DPGR | P ? ? S
