Kadhal Rojave Swaras and Western Notes
The swaras have been written so that,
- each swara written with space in between have to be hit, while
- swaras without space need to be played with a hit on the first swara of the group, sliding the others.
eg: mn2pm is a slide, with hit only on the first m. If the same swaras were written as “m n2 p m”, then we need to hit on each of them.
Here are the notes for the song, in C pitch (done by Krishna Pavan). The notes are almost identical to the swaras, with a few moves more or less here and there. Please feel free to use both the swara and note versions.
The notes have also been written similar to the swaras: two notes together = slide.
