Almost 5 years of Sitar Lessons?!

In this video I share some quick thoughts on learning the sitar and show footage of me practicing sitar after 1 month of lessons and then compare it to the same exercises almost 5 years later.

It’s been a long time since I googled “Sitar Lessons for Beginners.” 🙂

Sitar after 2 years of lessons. Gat in Raga Yaman. 2014

I took this video so I could compare it to last year’s status. My teacher also has me playing Alap and Jor, but I’ll save those videos for another day.
I am playing a used Barun Ray (Hiren Roy’s son) sitar. I purchased this sitar only a few weeks ago so I’m still getting used to it’s feel. It’s a huge improvement over my old Radha Krishna Sharma sitar. Video shot on the Zoom Q3HD.
