Nepal worst Earthquake in 80 Years

We encountered earthquake on 25 April 2015 and the next day on 26 April too at New Delhi. The centre of the earthquake became our neighbour Nepal and it faced life and property damages. It is Nepal’s worst earthquake in last 80 years with official death over more than 4000 now.

India is sending lots of help and doing the rescue operations. This earthquake was also felt at many places of Northern India with some life damage in Indian cities too.

Mother Earth

One of my friends wrote me this –

“If there is one thing an earthquake reminds us of, it is how fragile this life is. And how connected we are as a world family. The tectonic plates don’t care about the boundaries we draw over Mother Earth. To think that in just a split second, this reality we have built up around us can be destroyed, is a humbling thought. If today were the last day of our lives, would each one of us be truly content with who we ARE within? If not, it is time to start working towards becoming the persons we want to be. Not so much in terms of professions and designations, but as people – as living, breathing manifestations of soul energy.”

Roland Acoustic Guitar Amplifier

Roland Acoustic Guitar Amplifier

Roland Acoustic Guitar Amplifier

Dear Friends,

Today I got my new Roland Acoustic Guitar Amplifier from our owned Guitar Store. This is AC 60 Model.

It was for sale but I wanted it to be in my personal assets. Quite expensive at almost Rs. 40,000 & very small but very handy, awesome sound, beautiful rosewood finish etc. It has many good points. I am trying it for a solo guitar show after two days.

I hope it will cover the size of 1000 sq feet while maintaining the beauty of sound. I will be using both AUX in and other keyboard track.

Will play something on it and share its sound to you soon.

Love and Regards

Raga fusion with Tabla Maestro Athar Husain Khan

Raga fusion with Tabla Maestro Athar Husain Khan

Ustad Athar Hussain Khan

Athar Hussain Khan, is my dear friend for almost 15 years now, a great tabla maestro and from the famous dynasty of Ajrara Gharana. Ajrara Gharana is one of world renowned and one of the six main traditional schools in tabla drums.

Athar’s tabla is the one famous tabla sound that you hear every day at National news channel Aaj Tak.

We both had a great time recording this piece i.e. Indian Guitaroo track. I got to work with Athar in many recordings, which is so overwhelming every time. We have been working on Raga Fusion for over 10 years now and fortunately this is our first video shoot since then.

We recorded this piece on scale of raga Puriya Dhanashree for Indian classical representation while we take minor riffs for rock phrases.

We are uploading many unique videos on our dedicated guitarmonk tune time channel. Do subscribe www.youtube.com/gmtunetime for updates on more videos. You can also have our videos and audios in your mobile app through google play store by searching ‘gmtunetime’. Check our posts of some more videos here >>

Employee Engagement – Music Therapy Demo in office

Employee Engagement – Music Therapy Demo in office

Dear Friends

I was called for a ‘Music Therapy’ Demo and for a lecture on ‘Importance and Benefits of Music’ in corporate. The objective was to find out better ways and different ways to inculcate music in engagement of employees. It was a wonderful session and very nice audience.

I chose my other hand ‘guitar’ to demonstrate various scales and it’s impact on mind. I played few raga scales on guitar and the basis of these ragas along with some selected playlist through my computers.

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
