Na Ja Kahin Ab Na Ja 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

Singer : Mohd. Rafi
Lyrics : Majrooh Sultanpuri
Music : Laxmikant Pyarelal
Movie : Mere Humdum Mere Dost (1968)

Flute used for notations : A#

Well, I initially thought it is going to be an easy song to write its notations.  And indeed I wrote the notations in couple of hours time, with taking Pancham (P) of middle octave as the first note. 

But, after finishing the notations, when I found that I missed Rafi ji’s opening ‘Humming’ part of this song, I started to figure out the notations.  But as I had already completed the notations of the rest of the song, I was unable to fit the notes for this Prelude part.   Then after listening to the song for dozens of times, I came to the conclusion that I had taken a wrong note (P) to begin the song.

The only option left now was to start afresh. I jotted down the notes for the humming part which brought me to the first word of this song to be played at High Octave Shadaj (S’).

I learnt my lesson that I must listen to any song in its totality inlcude, prelude, interludes and postludes, so that the final notations are in line with the entire melody of the song.

So, I’m giving below both the notations – the one that I started with Pa and the revised one with Sa’
