Fastest Guitar – Played Indian Guitaroo at Speed of 600 notes per minute

Fastest Guitar – Played Indian Guitaroo at Speed of 600 notes per minute

Dear Friends,

Here I am sharing you the 1st song of 3rd season i.e. Indian Guitaroo of gmtunetime. This tune is the title track with the same name, a rare fusion of Rock & Raga music. This season I am going to display my own composed music and pieces. I am privileged having done it at a speed of 600 notes per minute. I am thankful to my favorite Tabla Artist Ustad Athar Hussain Khan, who accompanied me both in recordings and shoot. And a very aspiring percussionist Udit who accompanied in Drums. This is my one of the experiments I risked on guitar and I over-trained my fingers at speed of 650 beats per minute to be able to actually play it at this level and speed. I also want to credit ever inspiring Sawan Dutta who helped it get recorded and then mixed it at her studio.

CONCEPT OF INDIAN GUITAROO – The ‘adhar (basis)’ of this tune is based on Raga – Puriya Dhanashree scale and with some accidental notes, merged with minor pentatonic and application of power chords during rock riffs etc. It is a unique demonstration and fusion of Rock & Raga on Guitar within 3 minutes. Accidental cymbal smashes to show the Sum and reference for the complex Tihai. Ending it all finally in a new Key and Chord.

I hope you like it and if you do, do leave your comments to motivate me. Check more of my videos here >>

Regards

Tujhe Dekha to Ye – My Guitar tribute to Bollywood movie DDLJ

Friends,

Here is my second last song of Season # 2 of gmtunetime, Tujhe Dekha to Ye – my guitar tribute to Bollywood most popular and longest ever movie DDLJ, Dilwale Dulhania le Jayenge

The movie has recently completed its 1000 weeks at Maratha Mandir Cinema Hall in South Mumbai, India. The movie got released in the October month of year 1995 and so far one of the longest movies ever of Bollywood with main lead actors as Shahrukh Khan, Kajol, Amrish Puri, Anupam Kher etc.

Coming to its music part, it has both blend of west and foundation of Indian folk flavor. The songs of movies got very popular even before the movie is released, composed by music director Jatin Lalit. I chose the most popular song of this movie ‘Tujhe Dekha to Ye Jana Sanam’, which is a true blend of Indian Folk and Keherva rhythm merged with various riffs and chords transitions in between. It is a study for many guitar students.

I got a lots of reviews on same particularly songs as ‘Chaudvin Ka Chand’, ‘Tujhe Dekha’ and ‘Neele Neele Ambar Par’. All tunes are gems of its times, they belong to hearts of billions of people across.

I am privileged and blessed to have got the time to play them on my guitar in this fashion.

Guitar & Ghatam Season Playlist, Kapil Srivastava

Guitar & Ghatam Season Playlist, Kapil Srivastava

Friends,

I am sharing with you my full 5 tunes that I played in season # 1 ‘Guitar & Ghatam’ of gmtunetime. This video gives you all in a row. This was the start of my gmtunetime episodes and I learnt a lot so far in the process. Today I am launching my 3rd season and it seems that an era has passed since the 1st one. I know I will remember these days in future of my life as ‘golden days’ particularly when I will be old and won’t look like the way I am now in these videos.

I want to share you that all songs I make video for, I record them first at different sessions in recording studio, playing each phrase on guitar.  I do a lot of personal work to transcribe these tunes and then record them at different tracks. I then call percussionist and design the rhythm patterns and it takes a lot of time.

Guitar and Ghatam Kapil Guitarist

It would have been very easier for me to present these seasons with ready-made tracks but I always prefer to spend times on each and every track and play it manually. My philosophy of this project is to work on a particular music through guitar as lead instrument. My objective is to reflect the tone, impression and playing of guitar on different types of tunes.

Please see the dedicated website of gmtunetime, where we also helping other artists to get launched.

I look forward to hearing from you. Please subscribe at YouTube and download all seasons in google play store by gmtunetime.

Love & Regards

Kapil Srivastava

Hothon se Choo Lo Tum on Guitar

Hothon se Choo Lo Tum on Guitar

Friends,

This is my last song of the Bollywood special season of gmtunetime as “Hothon se choo lo Tum” by Ghazal Legend Jagjit Singh.

Those who are born before 1990’s know this melody well. It is from the 1980’s to end of 90’s, an era that used to be the ‘radio time’ without internet. And as such there was ample time for beautiful imaginations. This song used to come almost every day on radio and inspire us to a different level of relaxation, peace and romance.

I transcribed and played this melody solo on Guitar, improvised it with a faster tempo at the prelude and took some accidental chords and pauses at interesting points to give it a variety.

Waiting to share you my own composed season # 3 now onwards which is Indian Guitaroo. Check more of my guitar videos >>

Subscribe www.youtube.com/gmtunetime and download us at Google Play Store by name of ‘gmtunetime’

I am also sharing below the complete playlist of Bollywood Season on Guitar

Awesome Food at Pacific Mall, Anand Vihar

Awesome Food at Pacific Mall, Anand Vihar

Well this is one of the hidden malls most of Delhi residents would never prefer to visit considering its location at the outskirts of Delhi i.e. Anand Vihar. But pacific mall is worth a facility to roam around and among the best food courts than any other malls of Delhi.

You can go to the best located malls of Delhi as in Raja Garden etc. but the food court will be disappointing in most of the malls but Pacific Mall food court is an exception. I say it with full responsibility that it is comparatively among top 3 as compared to any other malls of Delhi-NCR be it Shipra Mall. I mean it when I am making this statement. This Mall may not be counted in Delhi List due to its poor location but it is one of the best taste, variety food courts you will find in Malls. If it comes to eating at a food court in a mall, I will definitely say let’s go PACIFIC MALL.

I have been eating here on and off for last 5 years now and so far I am satisfied with the taste and quality of brands. I never mind taking my family for a lunch here which I hardly do at any other malls of Delhi. One more reason is that most of food joints at this food court are stable since last many years as Fastrax, Pizza hut, Bikano besides some other good taste restaurants as Lucknow Food, China Town, Amritsari, Dosa Plaza etc.

The mall is cozy to roam even on Sunday and you won’t see it over-crowded (unless there is some event) as you see in GIP Noida or Shipra Mall etc. The best time to visit here is on Sunday as you will see lots of good crowd and activity.

You can check for more of my food experiences at different food joints

My visit to Lhasa Tibetan Restaurant Dehradun

My visit to Lhasa Tibetan Restaurant Dehradun

As you go closer towards Mussoorie through Rajpur, Sahastradhara Road, you will be amazed to see a prosperous Tibetan community, lots of monks, monasteries, libraries, universities and restaurants etc. These Tibetans are well-woven in the fabric of Uttarakhand, Dehradun in India and have further made it more colorful, spiritual and beautiful.

One of the many reasons I am proud of my country India is that my mother nation is capable to adore every culture & community. A famous ancient Hindu quote says “atithi devo bhava” which means that ‘the guest is equivalent to God” and no matter how low would politics go, love and acceptance is inherent in our roots. Tibetans are no longer refugees in India but part of it and practice their religion with freedom and pride.

I got very excited and curious to learn and feel the world of monks and stopped at one of the Tibetan Restaurant named as ‘Lhasa Restaurant’. Lhasa is the administrative capital of Tibet in China and here it is one of the best restaurants for Tibetan Food. I also wrote a lot of other restaurants at my ‘I am a foodie’ category

Here I ate lot of varieties of dishes with my mother as Kothay Momos, Veg and Cheese Momos, Singapuri Chowmein, Pan Cake with Tea. I tried one more specialized Chinese food restaurant chains in Delhi but I found a lot of variety here, which was quite good.

I will be visiting some library and a university in coming few days to explore more of Tibetan community. I took some snaps for sharing them with you. You can stop at here at Lhasa to eat something if you are ever visiting Mussoorie.
