In this video, I’ll tell you 3 most powerful tips using which you can play any song on Harmonium At least, you’ll go on a track…. if you follow these 3 tips… You’ll definitely go on the track where in you’ll start feeling confident that I can play any song Since I am getting a lot of requests all kinds of…old songs…new songs…qawalis gazhals I don’t think I can make tutorials of all of them Though, I’ll try my best Because these are some really good requests But before that I want you to also learn what are the basics? How can you play songs all by yourself? So, please follow these 3 tips and watch this entire video and I guarantee you that within one month you’ll see a lot of change if you are a beginner and if you are already playing well even then watch this video and do mention in comments what else can we teach amateurs? so that everyone can learn more and more so without further adieu, let’s begin what’s the first tip? you don’t need to do much! just produce a sound it could be in ‘aa’, ‘om’ or humming or be anything but produce a CONSTANT sound, like right? you produced a constant sound now all you need to do is search where is this on Harmonium, like… right? I pressed three keys. I came to know it’s here this is neither here (Re), nor here (komal Re) but here (Sa) If you are not able to produce constant sound like what do I mean by constant you need to maintain that sound that sound shouldn’t vibrate like you started off with see? so the shouldn’t go from one key to another if you are not able to do it using ‘Aaa’, try humming or try anything else or at least keep that sound in your mind produce it once hmm ……..hmm so like this keep that sound constant so that you can identify the ‘sur’ (key) easily because if you press any key on harmonium, like it produces a constant sound which doesn’t vibrate if your sound is constant, you’ll not find it difficult to identify the ‘sur’ (key) Practice this a LOT!! what do you need to do? produce any sound you found it? now another sound Luckily I straight away found it as mostly I know where could the key be so the meaning or gist or take away of this exercise is just that you must be able to plot each and every sound on Harmonium, approximately because once you know ‘approximately’, you’ll certainly know ‘exactly’ like produce any other sound So practice it a lot!! It’s a very powerful tip. When you understand that which pitch (whatever key you play, it defines a pitch) is played where on the harmonium that this sound (pitch) will be played approximately here assume 50% of the work is done Because a song is just about keys and if you have understood this 50% problem is solved Now watch the next two tips and I am giving you 100% guarantee That you’ll learn how to play harmonium, quite easily be it any song even the most difficult compositions and oh yeah. One thing that you should keep in mind is that you need to find the exact key and not the approximate key For e.g. let’s produce any sound so it matched with F# now it shouldn’t happen that you are producing a sound (F#) But you identify ‘G’ key. May you get confused in the beginning I am producing ‘F#’ sound from my mouth But when I press ‘G’ on Harmonium, it might sound right in my mind It’s a minor difference But you’ll need to understand this So do play the nearby keys when you find a match so that there’s no confusion and you find the ‘exact’ key you might think it’s ‘G’ sound that you are producing but it might be ‘F#’ Exact match is F# So choose wisely by playing the nearby key Make your best judgement and you’ll be all good Let’s move to our second tip now What do you need to do? You need to produce ‘two’ sounds you may keep the pitch same but you need to produce the sound twice like you can go up, down and stay on the same pitch but produce two sounds. May be simply like in whatever format you like and then you need to plot both the sounds on Harmonium Now the first tip will help you here Identify the first sound you are producing and plot it What’s the first key (sur)? Found it? It’s ‘D’ Now the second sound First I tried ‘G’. I immediately understood, it wasn’t right Then I tried F# So it was D-F# So this is my second tip Practice it a lot! Produce a sound and then jump onto another Now try another. Let me keep my first sound as ‘D’ only Got it? It was ‘A’, the second key this time So this is all about my second tip Practice a lot with all the different possible combinations You can come down as well like keep this in mind first key is ‘F#’ now find the next one i am coming down try with ‘F’…..no! so you can find jumps like this First produce and identify the first sound Then make a jump and plot it on harmonium So these are two really powerful tips But how are they going to help you find a song? Lets see an example Did you get the song? It’s ‘Kitna Haseen Chehra’ by Kumar Sanu If you see first two ‘sur’ (keys) in this song. They are just a ‘jump’ Now if you were to find these two keys on Harmonium You’ll find these two tips useful Firstly find the first ‘key’ It’s C# This song might be on a different scale but from where I am singing, It’s C# Try F#…no! Try F…..no! Try G#….there you go! Now see this G# to A is also a jump But there are very nearby As you progress and practice You’ll get a good hold of these as well For e.g. try this right now You made a small jump Now let’s move to the third and final tip what do you need to do? You need to remember the jump of ‘Sa’, ‘Ga’, ‘Pa’ & ‘SA’ Now what is ‘Sa’, ‘Ga’, ‘Pa’, SA’? Let’s take C#-Major scale as base so, your C# key would be your ‘Sa’ So just press C# (Sa), F (Ga), G# (Pa) and C# (SA) of the next octave Now you need to remember these jumps of ‘Sa-Ga-Pa-SA’ in your head Let’s try with D#-Major Scale Now if D# key is your ‘Sa’ Then it should be clear in your mind what will Ga, Pa and SA sound like Now these are the basic jumps that you should always remember
