Any fans are learning Indian instrumentals because of Mr. Harrison? =]
or are you deciding to learn or already know how to play an Indian instrumental?

I'd like to learn tabla, not sitar. cos i like playing drums. XD
and I've started to enjoy some kind of Indian music. like Krishna songs.

I love Indian music. Sitar is one of my favorite insturments. George did first influence me to listen to it, but I don't just like it because he does. It's so relaxing and different, I can see why he loved it.

Tabla's are really cool drums, the sound they make.  I would love to play the stiar but i've heard from Ravi Shankar it takes many years to even begin to master the insturment.

My uncle Ted got one off a guy in the pub and pretty well picked it up in a week. He can do a mean "We are The Champions" and can almost do the melody line from The Birdie Song.
He said it  helps if you get really bladdered first.

:D That's good.

   My friend's uncle had one, but he sold it. :(

I think Ravi meant like people can play it, but for it to actaully  be played right it takes a while.


But that's neat he picked it up so fast. I wish I could do that with an insturment

I'd like to play guitar, so I asked for one for Christmas.
