Subject: Tanpura Tutor

We recently received the copy of Tanpura Tutor that we ordered, and we are very pleased with the contents. This will enable us to integrate a donated tanpura into our kirtan group. Our players are also thinking about purchasing your tabla and harmonium videos to enhance their current playing skills.

Thank you.

One small comment on the Tanpura Tutor: in the tape, Mr. Batish says that he will demonstrate which keys of the harmonium to tune from, but this seems to have be overlooked. While it was apparent to us that he is tuning to C# below middle C, if an unexperienced person tries to tune to C# at middle C, he will probably pop a string or two.

Thank you for this observation. Perhaps we can add a graphic title clearing this oversight. I really appreciate you bringing this to our attention

Besides, we all want to see how you pump and play a harmonium, and tune the tanpura all at once :)

A job for the music yogi :-)

Thank you for a very useful video.

Our pleasure. I will forward your comments to Ashwinji.
