Preface

Music is considered to have a divine origin and own which brings its practitioner very close to god. It is said that god created music to give a proof of his presence. Therefore the existence of music is as old as humanity itself. But later it came to be presumed that music is an inborn quality given by god himself and therefore it can not be learned here on this earth. One may be trained in music and excel provided there is genetic support but is not a universal fact. One can learn everything with proper sincerity and devotion.

Keeping this in view the present series of hand books has been prepared as a references material for those who have just got in touch with music and if it appeals to their artistic sensibilities to proceed further in this field. For this we have selected one of the oldest instruments of our music tradition the Sarod. It is an instrument which is capable of energizing anyone’s senses with its grave sound.

This book takes care of the inquisitiveness of beginner and points out the salient problem areas of this field in a friendly and simple manner.

Any suggestion for improvements of this book are welcome.
