    Exclamation Help me understand this piece of the song notations

    Here's a piece of the song notations that i got regarding the song :

    Legend for the notes:
    s = sa = C
    r1 = ri 1 = C#
    r2 = ri 2 = D
    g2 = ga 2 = D#
    g3 = ga 3 = E
    m1 = ma 1 = F
    m2 = ma 2 = F#
    p = pa = G
    d1 = da 1 = G#
    d2 = da 2 = A
    n2 = ni 2 = A#
    n3 = ni 3 = B
    S = sa = C [next octave; higher "sa"]
    R1 ...

    Notes: s r2 g3 m1 p d2 n3 S
    here, r=r2, g=g3, m=m1, d=d2, n=n3 [unless otherwise specified]
    The problem is i cant understand this stuff, so i cant play the song as its full with these notations.
    Can someone please give me a briefer on this??

    the sa ri ga ... are indian notations
    and C C# D.....are western notations
    And Sa note is same as C

    you need only worry abt wasternt notation for guitar
    You also need a fretboard diagram which shows which note comes in which fret(u may need to google this)
