Some of you may have already seen this video but I thought it might be interesting for those who have not -- it is not a really advanced class so many beginners may also find it useful

Thanks man! that is a great video. Reminds me of when I started with sitar. Those are basically the exercises in his book My Music My Life. Back then I had no idea how the embellishments should sound. Especially the little sweep up when doing ascending patterns was a bit of a mystery to me. That's an embellishment I consider typical Ravi Shankar. Other players also use it but not that much. It is still kind of hard to do on every note when going fast.

It is great to see these exercises executed by RS himself. I Also like his sound here.

I think the gamak exercises he gives are very good as they are very tightly connected to an 8 beat melody line.
