Sham se ankh me nami si hai 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

Sham se ankh me nami si hai – Sargam notations

Lyricist : Gulzar
Singer & Composer : Jagjit Singh,
Album : Marasim (1999)

Flute used for notation : B

This song is another example that not every song has to start with ‘Sa’.  Initially when I was playing this song with Sa as first note, the cross line which has to end with a dipping note – “…nami si hai”, was not sounding proper.  So, after some more hits and trials, I finally got it right with taking Shuddh Gandhar (G) as the first note with the help of Kann Swar of Rishab (R).  Following notations contain only one Komal swar, that is, Komal Nishad (n).  Lot of ‘Meend’ needs to be played. 

This Ghazal needs to be played very very calmly. Do not hurry through the notes.  Listen to the song first – as you should always do while playing any other song – feel the mood and recreate the same with your playing. Enjoy!

And, this is how I played this song on my B Scale flute:
