Suhana safar aur ye

Suhana safar aur ye

Old is gold! This is particularly so true for old Hindi film songs, like this one.  Such a beautiful composition.

I had been failing to jot down the notations of this song when I was trying to start it from Sa. Because, after that I was unable to play the Interlude parts.  I gave up thinking that this is not the one for which I’d be able to write notations.  But today, suddenly I picked Shuddh Gandhar (G) as the first note. And, that was it.  Puzzle solved.

I used C middle flute for producing these Sargam notations.  Hope you will be able to play these notes on your flute and other instruments.  Enjoy!

How to read SARGAM notations

  • CAPITAL LETTERS = Shuddh Swars (Pure Notes)
  • small letters = Komal Swars (Flat Notes)
  • A Note with # [hash] = Tivra Swar 
  • Letter/Alphabet ONLY = Medium Pitch/Normal blow on flute
  • Letter/Alphabet PRECEDED BY a ” . ” [full stop] or  a ” , ” [comma] = Low Pitch/Softer blow on flute
  • Letter/Alphabet FOLLOWED BY a ‘ [single quote] = High Pitch/harder blow on flute
  • Notes in { } = “murki” or “khatka” which have to be played very fast without any pause
  • A Note in ( ) = “kann swar” has to be just touched before moving on to the next note
  • A “~” between two Notes = “Meend”. That is, you have to glide from one note to another slowly to produce that wavy effect.
