Introduction To 'How To Play Guitar' By Mamta Chaturvedi

Guitar is a very popular instrument. Though foreigner by birth, it has adapted itself, especially the electric version, very well to the climates of Indian music. Despite the limitation of its original version to play full tunes, its lilting sound took it to universal fame, specially in a part, song or picnic soirees, all over the world. Guitar is as dear a companion of its player as his sweetheart. Spellbound by the mellifluous tonal qualities, the musicians went on with their experiments on the instrument and emerged sonorously with its electric version, encompassing all the nuance-playing capabilities of the intricate system. In Indian classical music-whether it is Van Shipley playing the Western or filmi tunes or Braj Bhushan Kabra regaling the audience in the national programme of music -- Guitar commanded equal respect and popularity. Easier to play than many classical Indian music-playing instruments and more melodious than its many Western brethren, this instrument forms a tuneful confluence of both the streams of music: Western and Indian.

But surprisingly, in spite of or its universal acceptance, there are almost no good, books available, especially in India, to make the learner know anything about the instrument. The author is specially grateful to Mr. Narendra Kumar of Diamond Pocket Books who has willingly agreed to bring out this book. I also express my indebtedness to Pt. Ram Sevak of Kanpur and my warm blessing to my niece Mrs. Manjula Chaturvedi whose useful guidance and practical demonstration helped tremendously in preparing the material for this book.

May this book be an inseparable addition to the long list of sweethearts of our young guitar players!
