Preface

The book contains the various compositions, which are to be performed on sitar, the most popular musical instrument of India. Sitar is an improvised version of ancient veena. Its tonal quality is so different than the other stringed instruments due to which it has gained popularity.

The compositions performed on any instrument is always duly composed, keeping in view the playing technique of the instrument. Our effort is to present such compositions which suit the instrument in general with special emphasis on sitar.

The ragas covered in this book belong to five thatas only. In some of the ragas more than two compositions are given to enable the student to have a more clear picture of the raga.

Some of the patterns which help the student in practising as well as forming the tana are also described. We hope this venture of ours will be quite useful to a student of a sitar.
