Just to let you all know, I've asked David Courtney to look into starting a new forum on this site called "Indian Strings Forum". Its great to have an open forum for sitarjis exchanging info and so forth. But how 'bout those sarangi, sarod, tanpura, dilruba, veena, surbahar and so-forth players? I've heard people say there is a ton of information on the net for sitar and tabla, but hardly nothing for anything else. So, my thought was to combine all the other strings with sitar so as not to leave them out. Going to also post this onto the Indian Music forum to get comments or opinions. If it works, then maybe sitar forum will be incorporated into the new strings forum. What do you all think? Sny comments from other forum members?
