Ghungroo ki tarah

Ghungroo-ki-tarah

Singer : Kishore Kumar,
Lyrics & Music : Ravindra Jain
Movie : Chor Machaye Shor (1974)

Flute used for notations : G#

This song is based on Raag Jhinjhoti. So the use of Komal Nishad (n) is prominent in this song.   The difficult part of this song to play on Flute is the sur on the word “Main” that appear in the second part of Sthayi.  One needs lot of practice of playing ‘Meend’ to be able to play this part.  Also note that the Antaras after the interlude music start at high Sa.  It is a difficult song but not an impossible one to play on flute. If I could do it, so can you.

Dil Aaj Shayar Hai

Singer : Kishore Kumar
Lyrics : Neeraj
Music : S D Burman
Movie : Gambler (1971)

Flute scale used : G

What a composition! What a rendition! Such songs can never grow old.  This song is little tricky to play on Bansuri if you are not well versed with playing komal Re and komal Ni together.  If you compromise on those parts where these two notes are to be played in sync, then you will never get the right mood of this song.  So practice playing these two komal swars again and again before attempting to play this song.  But I tell you, once you get a hang of this song, you wont get tired of playing this melodious tune over and over again.  Good luck!

Kahin door jab din dhal jaye

kahin-door-jab-din-dhal-jaye

Sargam notations for the song : Kahin door jab din dhal jaye
Singer : Mukesh
Lyrics : Yogesh
Music : Salil Chowdhury
Movie : Anand (1971)

This song is very close to my heart. Magical composition by Sali Chowdhury, amzing lyrics by Yogesh and soulful singing of Mukesh.    Just the song that I wish to listen again and again when I am sad.

I had been trying to write the notations for this song from quite some time now.  But I would get stuck after the prelude tune which I would start with Ga for easiness.  But after the prelude I would not get the correct note of the first word “kahin” in the song.  I kept on trying and trying.  And then, today I tried something different.  I started the prelude tune with High Sa on G# flute.  That was it.  After starting the prelude of the song on high sa, I was able to come to the correct note for “kahin” which was Dha.

kahin-door-jab-din-dhal-jaye-sargam

I really enjoy playing this song on my flute.  I have tried to jot down the prelude, interlude and music pieces in between the song as below.  Hope you will also enjoy this evergreen song on your instruments.
