    Yes I do play a bit of flute. I was very keen on playing the flute earlier however due to lack of proper guidance and a suitable niche I had to shift to guitar. But I do play a flute. I can play a loads of song leads and I am fond of playing the flute part in song Dooba Dooba By Silk Route. Well When I recently went to the IIT D I found a guy called Rishabh who plays flute remarkably. I asked him about his guru, then he told me that he was the son of shree Prasanna ji, the great flute player, and when I enquired aout the charges, he said that it was taught free of cost. I cannot go to delhi for learnin flute as I have no time left after college. If anybody out there wants the number then can gimme me a buzz. Just drop a message here and I will send u the number.

    HI guys glad to know there are some flute enthusiasts here. I am also very interested in playing the indian bansuri flute. I bought one for myself but dont have the patience to go thru the normal process of learning from a guru.
    I learned the guitar myself looking up notes and chords etc from the internet. Unfortunately there arent any sites as such for flutes. And at this moment i have no basics about flute. It wud be gr8 if u guys cud give me some web addresses or even basic lessons here?

    Well thats a Difficult job. But somebuddys gotta start.ok here it goes
    This is as far as I know..................

    The flute are of generally two types:
    a)Aarhhi (tilted) means Murali
    b)Seedhi(simple bansuri easier to play compared to murali)

    Both have a common style of moving the fingers but the basic difference is of using the air of ur mouth to give some small and interesting effects.

    the sound varies in sargam that is from bottom to top each time u lift a finger the change of sound is with a gap like
    SA tone RE tone GA semi-tone MA tone PA tone DHA tone NI semi-tone SA
    AT MAXX u can play 3 scales by increasing the intensity of air stream comin out ur mouth.

    If u want to play a particular song which u already have tabbed on guitar then the transformation is easy. To make it easier u must have the flute of right scale. that scale shud be 2 tones down the key note of that song.
    question regarding this lesson no. ! may follow......

    I spent my formative years in Ireland,bought a tinwhistle(sometimes called a penny whistle) and practised but never formally played it.Now,I am wondering if anyone would have tabs for this,especially bollywood music.I am a guitarist(folk/Hits of 60s/70s/beatles/).I am willing to give indian music a shot! Perhaps,there is someone out there who knows this instrument.Thanks
