Pyar ka pehla khat likhne me – Sargam notations

Lyricist : Hasti
Singer & Composer : Jagjit Singh,
Album : Face to face (1994)

Flute used for notation : F#

This Ghazal needs to be played with ’emotions’. Do not hurry through the notes.  Listen to this Ghazal first for a couple of times to feel the essence of it before you start playing it on your instruments.

Both forms of Gandhars (G, g) and Nishads (N, n) as well as ‘Meend’ (~) need to be played carefully wherever indicated.  

I have tried to keep the Sargam simple.  However, once you get hold of these basic notes, you may improvise further to play this beautiful Ghazal.

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.
