    Hi Meena, welcome to IGT
    There are not many carnatic tabs here. Some helpful threads are here:

    General discussion on raagas etc:
    Sa Ri Ga Ma Pa Dha Ni Sa-Tabs

    Tabs for "English note" by Madurai Mani Iyer:
    English Note - A western style Carnatic song

    If you want tabs for a specific carnatic song, I guess u can post a request in the Tamil tabs forum. But getting carnatic tabs is not as easy as getting tabs for film songs.

    hey meena, does your daughter learn carnatic music? if not she should do that first.
    if it is difficult finding carnatic guitar teacher, she should learn vocals, and regular guitaring. Then incorporate what she learnt in her carnatic vocal classes in her guitaring. If she learns an instrument like veena etc.. it becomes even more easier to play carnatic on the guitar.

    Yes she has been leaning carnatic vocal.Her vocal teacher wants my daughter to play few sree tyagaraja songs (for an aradhana)on the electric guitar, while few others will play the piano/violin/veena. - support for vocal singers! do i make any sense?
    We are not looking for carnatic guitar tutor.
    She has about 2 1/2 mths to learn.
    Just in need for tabs, any help would be appriciated. thanks

    I suggest u get the books by TK Govinda Rao.
    There is a book for each of the trinity (Tyagaraja, Muthuswamy ***shidhar and Syama shastri) with notes for each of their kritis. With these notes you can play them on the guitar.
    Which songs r u specifically looking at?

    Sure, here is the mapping:
    suppose you take C as your Sa
    Code:
    S R1 R2 R3
         G1 G2 G3 M1 M2 P D1 D2 D3 
                             N1 N2 N3 S
    C C# D  D# E  F  F# G G# A  A# B  C
    This is just a literal mapping, but to play carnatic music on the guitar u need to get the gamakas by sliding or hammering and that requires a lot of practice.

    What I mean is for intsance if u take the raagam valaji, it has N2 which is A#. But the N2 is actually sung as "Da Sa Da Sa Da Sa"
    So try this tab for valaji:
    Aarohanam: S G3 P D2 N2 S (in western notes according to the conversion chart above, it will be C E G A A# C)
    Avarohanam: S N2 D2 P G3 S

    E------------------------------------
    B------------------------------------
    G--------2-3-5-----------------------
    D----2-5-----------------------------
    A--3---------------------------------
    E------------------------------------

    Now instead of just playing A# for Ni, try this:
    on the G string, 3rd fret is Ni. But instead play 2/5\2/5\2
    i.e. slide from 2 to 5 back to 2 again to 5 and back to 2 (picking only once)
    so u get the more carnatic sounding Ni. Play the entire aarohanam with this new Ni, and it will sound better.

    This website has some great lessons. It is a great collection of songs and theory. Anyone like me who cannot go to carnatic classes can get a feel of it here.
