    I have been using a book by Ravi Shankar which includes a sitar tutor, but i think my sitar might need some adjustment. I think perhaps the nut, the ivory piece between the main tuning pegs and the fingerboard, might be adjusted too high. In order to get accurate intonation I was required to move the frets toward the nut, and the first fret. Tuning the sitar is part of the ar­tis­tic pro­cess. There­fore there is no one "standard" tuning which will work for every rag and every si­tua­tion. Whatever we say in this page must be con­si­dered to be just a start from which you can change ac­cor­ding to your individual requirement.

      The sitar has been popular since the s. Since that time it has always had a considerable mystique among musicians. It also has an undeserved reputation for being difficult to play. This book/online audio set cuts though the mystique and misapprehensions and presents the material in a simple fashion that is easily understood both by Indians and non-Indian musicians ng the Sitar Reviews: 1. Sitar-making is a very trad­itional craft. Virtually every city has craftsmen who deal in this commodity. Virtually every city has craftsmen who deal in this commodity. Like the other crafts, it is passed down from ge­nera­tion to ge­nera­tion; in this man­ner the apprentice learns the techniques form an older, more es­tab­lished craftsman.

    The sitar book: a beginning instruction method for playing the Indian sitar, with musical exercises, detailed explanation of Indian musical notation system, ten ragas, and a brief history of Indian music.
