Auroch

I tried to post a couple of attached files as examples; but the size was too large  Embarrassed. Feel free to check the Indian Classical / Indian folk Music sections of my website: [www.vibrasoft.com] for several Raga and Dhun notations. Let me know if you need any help deciphering these; and I will be glad to help.

Like you, my ICM training was pretty formal - 6 years Hindustani Classical on the Slide Guitar. No matter what different styles of music I play, it seems that I always gravitate towards ICM ha ha.

Thank you! I will definitely check these out:)
I have a slide guitar that belonged to my parents though I have barely dabbled with it.

Hi Auroch ... I was out for a few - job related. Posted a new one "Sare Jahan Se Accha". Have you have heard this one before - it is a patriotic Indian song?

Also, what make is your slide guitar - I have a Chandler electric.

Hey, Suhale
I don't believe so though it's definitely a nice piece. Has a much more slow-paced rhythm to it - or at least in terms of the main Tabla phrases that come to mind.

The slide guitar is a Fender. It is a truly an ancient beast!

Auroch - I recently purchased a Blue Yeti Microphone to do some recording work on Garage-band. Will be posting new stuff on You Tube very soon.

Fender is a solid company - in my opinion, the slide guitar is a very neat instrument with some very unique capabilities. In the right hands, it can be down right magical - some Indian musicians have been outstanding with this particular instrument. Here are a couple for your information, check them out on You Tube and you will be amazed:

(1) Sunil Ganguly (Light classical and film music)
(2) Brij Bhusan Kabra (Classical)

I'm not familiar with Blue Yeti, care to tell me a little bit about them?

Currently enjoying one of Sunil's pieces on youtube (O Shayam Kuch Ajab Thi) which is so nice.

...and just finished a great one by Brij too!
Excellent stuff.

Might as well share the two I checked out...as they are quite fantastic. Great Tabla accompaniment in Brij's piece though!!!

Do you listen to Anoushka Shankar at all?

Yes indeed my friend ... Brij is an absolute legend. What amazes me is the masters don't need to go at a breakneck speed to be phenomenal, sometimes there is tremendous power in slow pieces (case in point Brij's performance). Once I heard Amazing Grace being performed by a hammered dulcimer master and was thoroughly moved.

If I am not mistaken Anoushka is Pandit Ravi Shankar's daughter ... right? I have not heard a lot of her music, but are there any particular pieces that you recommend?

I know exactly what you mean with the slower pace being just as spectacular!
I really want to see Zakir Hussain again! Speaking of Zakir, here's a solo that has some "beat evasion" in the mix. It's a video I watch every once in a while because it's really great!

As for Anoushka Shankar, yes she's the daughter of Ravi Shankar. This one is fairly short so it could be easy enough to get through compared to some of the videos that are 1.5hour performances haha

I'd like to someday acquire a Ghatam. I feel it would be simple enough to get the hang of since I play Udu already. Here's a great solo by Vikku Vinayakram.

Definitely enjoying our correspondence, Suhale:) It's very refreshing.
