Chickari stringing and tuning May 19, 2003 11:38 a.m.


Hello everyone.

I am a very new sitar player and I have a basic question. I am a bit confused about the chickari strings. Do these strings get mounted up on the white posts that sit on the fretboard right next to the tuning pegs?

I tried to tune them w/out mounting them and I could not get the strings to tune to correct notes......to much string tension!

Hope I explained this clearly enough =)

Thanks for the help.

Hi Jay: You are correct sir, the last two chikari strings rest on the little posts

Thank you K.K.

I will run both strings onto both posts and then will actually have my sitar completely tuned!!
