Swaras for each move of the ARRahman song Puthu Vellai Mazhai has been written and shown on the guitar. The swaras have been written clearly with rules avoiding ambiguity, that will help you play them without doubt.
In the PDF, the swaras have been written so that:
- any two swaras without a space in between be played with one hit and the remaining as slur (slide/hammer-on/pull-off). e.g. mp is a hit on ma, slide to pa. But m p is a hit each on ma and pa.
- Higher octave S, R, G are written in capital letters. Regular octave is srgmpdn. Lower octave is n’ d’ p’ etc written with swara and a ‘.
Substitute the swaras with the notes to play it on any of the 12 pitches.
