This might fall under a "mid-newbie" inquiry: Here's an open question...What is /are A)dhrupad, B)khyal, & C)thumri? Are these forms of Indian music? Styles of playing? Or something else entirely? Neal

Hi Neal,
Instead of a lengthy explanation, I'll point you to a site that has it. It's the site of Kens teacher Haresh, very nice!

Click on 'online lessons'
Then scroll down to section 3.1 and you'll find your answers........Enjoy!

Thanks Lars, I'll take a peek. Neal

PS Glad I listened to you and went for the Teak!

PPS With the 2nd gourd on the Teak is heavy!!! Almost twice as heavy as the loaner I had from my teacher.

My pleasure.......actually it's Ken who deserves the kudos for finding the site and telling me about it.
Yes, the teaks are heavy......I love it!! Hope you're having some fun, the sound really comes around....if you play every day don't forget to change your MA string every 2 months or so.....
