Raga Kedaram is based on the Raga Shankarabharanam, which uses the same notes as a Major scale. In this example, the C note has been taken as Sa, giving us the notes C D E F G A B C to play with (although Raga Kedaram will not need the A note, the Dha).

The guitar used in the video is a Japanese made Nylon string guitar, the name of which I am unable to find. Yamaha C40 (Amazon.com, Amazon.in) will be a good economical Nylon string guitar if you need one.
