The Sitarist



My Salon Entry at the SP Forum.

After 4 J's we were sure on the edge. :) Raju and Adityo especially, they got involved in a very intense Guitar vs. Sitar jugalbandi. I dont even remember how I took these photos. It was my friends manual Nikon FM10 - a strange machine which did'nt like strangers either. The photos are at weird angles suggesting very weird positions on my part.

how is sitar played? how many frets, the keys, the chords, and does it differ from guitar a lot?

the poems without the authors are mine. :) The person in happiness is an Actor. I dont play the sitar, so I dont know. But there are lots of frets.
