Q: Vikrambhaiya, Can we get the guitar chords of bhajans online?A: Hey I’m the wrong person to ask since I don’t know too many chords myself — I outsource all the difficult parts to my highly qualified band-mates! I am, however, constantly striving to learn more about theory and harmony — hopefully this year onwards I shall have more time for the same — till recently my teaching schedule took up almost twenty days of each month, leaving precious little time for even the most mundane of domestic chores 🙂
The past few years I have been doing a lot of research into different styles of devotional music of India, especially from the folk traditions — we have such a huge treasure trove of knowledge and art, most of which has never been documented.
I have had the privilege of listening to genius musicians and unheralded saints sitting in people’s houses, or even under the trees, in remote villages whose names I cannot remember. The only thing I recall is being transported to heights of ecstasy, and praying that I could be blessed with such simplicity and lack of artifice!
