Likewise, Paul. I bought one a month ago and I'm struggling with the fingering.
And I have big hands! (I'm a guitarist by inclination). Have you found any good
instruction sites on the web? I'm still looking... Where are you based? I'm in
Devon, U.K. Let me know how you get on - maybe we can swap tips.

You can find more details on

I am not a Bansuri player but I think taking up the Bansuri is msot admirable. However, whilst looking on the web I saw a site
From this you can buy material for self study put together by Hariprasad Chaurasia. I think this should be good quality material. Good luck, Steve.
