Spice up your improv with eastern harmonies and techniquesThe word ‘raga’ translates to ‘color’ or ‘passion’ and the performer sets out to create a mood or atmosphere (rasa) that is unique to the raga in use. Traditionally, ragas are associated with specific times of day and seasons of the year, and there are hundreds in present use today. John McLaughlin, Derek Trucks, George Harrison and John Fahey are just a few of the guitarists whose music has been influenced by Indian music and ragas.
Why will you go Gaga for Raga? Fareed Hague and Indrajit Banerjee have cooked up one of the most unique learning adventures that we’ve ever produced here at TrueFire, and you’ll be fascinated with their curriculum whatever your level or preferred style of music. You will also graduate their course with a palette of new harmonic and expressive approaches that you can spice your blues, jazz and rock solos with.
"I play the Sitar and I play the guitar, but because of some brain blockage of my own, I was never able to transfer one technique to the other. Fareed in just the first example opened up a new world for me and let me transfer some of my love of sitar to the guitar. I think most guitarists are afraid of Indian classical music because they have the mistaken impression that it is based on micro-tones and completely different scales than western music. These lessons help show in an easily understandable way, how some of the concepts of Indian classical music can be transferred to the guitar, within the context of what most guitar players are already familiar with. Besides letting me explore some ragas now on the guitar, it certainly expanded my knowledge of the guitar fretboard which will add some more individuality to my playing. Thanks Fareed and Indrajit!"
