Here is a nice composition by Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia. It is a great one to learn, as the structure is straight forward (4×4), and the scale of Raag Kirvani (Kirwani) can be related to the western “Harmonic Minor”.

Here the recordings that are public available, and below the transcript. There is also a video of this performance of the Gat out there on YouTube (see below).

Note to my students:
Please log in and check the students blog, there is some additional material.
Happy Practice 😉
