    Ma’am mera question ye tha ke awaz me murkhiyaan, fast utar charhao and
    awaz ziyadaa surili kese hoti hai?

  4. Anyone coming with a western ear who might be a little confused. Its a
    simple major scale but take close attention to most of the re’s and dha’s,
    as there’s a slight microtone between them. Also by doing these scales this
    way, and as in the following podcast. You can create some interesting lines
    as well as unique time signatures! It’s great for instrumentalists too!
    Thanks for the videos. I’m a music teacher myself and always loved this
    style, been ‘trying’ to educate my students! Haha thanks!
