    Carnatic Notes on Guitar

    I am a novice to this forum. I just bought a Acoustic Guitar and the tutor said that I can use the SECOND STRING to play Carnatic Music. On this Second String, he made the Open Note to "A" which is equivalent to "Sa". I practiced upto janta swaras and now I am practicing "Vara veena mrudhu pani".
    I surfed the net and found notes for my favourite songs, but they say that "C" is equivalent to "Sa".

    I want to convert those notes so that I can play.

    How can I convert those notes ? I need some help......
