    Could you be more specific in your query?
    It's possible to construct chords for each raaaga according to what kind of sound you are aiming for. If you give me an example maybe I could help.

    Yes it is possible to construct a chord for notes in raagas that are nothing but a note in our western system arpeggios, Sa Ga Pa u can play with C, some times u can use C#

    Note if root is in C major scale

    Western Chords for each Carnatic Raagas

    In functional harmony you can often play minimally and imply the obvious chord structure with just one or two notes.

    But as soon as you get into non-functional harmony or extended chords/upper structures you have to use more notes, the minimum number of which Ive suggested in my previous post.

    I am looking to play some guitar chords along with mahaganapathim.. If I keep playing C and G it does 'fit' in with the song but then I want to do chord variations (like in any western music song) and then go on to do a small solo with the equivalent notes of nattai. Could someone please help me with this?
