  1. I am an adult beginner of keyboard playing. I find your notes for songs are excellent. What actually confuses an adult beginner like me is that you don’t mention the SCALE for the songs. Is there any particular reason for not mentioning the SCALE in which a particular song is to be played on Keyboard, harmonium……

    1. Thank you for liking my efforts.

      Good question. Why I often do not mention the scale of the song. See there are two reasons, one is that I’m not a trained musician and hence do not fully understand the concept of scales. Two, since I write notations by playing a song on my flute my style of writing notations differs from what you’d get from someone who writes notations based on harmonium or keyboard.

      However, my notations are found to be playable with some improvisation by most of the instrumentalists (as I keep getting ‘thank you’ calls from them). So, I am sure you’ll also be able to play songs based on my notations. In case of any clarification you need, you can always call me anytime.


  2. It’s basically a beautiful and meaningful song. Most of time I have searched lyrics of the same but you have presented wonderfully with notations. Really grateful to you

How to read SARGAM notations

  • CAPITAL LETTERS = Shuddh Swars (Pure Notes)
  • small letters = Komal Swars (Flat Notes)
  • A Note with # [hash] = Tivra Swar 
  • Letter/Alphabet ONLY = Medium Pitch/Normal blow on flute
  • Letter/Alphabet PRECEDED BY a ” . ” [full stop] or  a ” , ” [comma] = Low Pitch/Softer blow on flute
  • Letter/Alphabet FOLLOWED BY a ‘ [single quote] = High Pitch/harder blow on flute
  • Notes in { } = “murki” or “khatka” which 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.
