Anyone play sitar? I have $500 and am seriously considering purchasing one and taking lessons as to enjoy and intellectualise myself with this hypnotically seductive instrument. Please educate me about all the traditional good-ness of sitars. Particularly what brand or what kind to purchase, for I am a self declared n00b of sorts to sitar. Thankyou.

It's scientifically proven that if you are white and you want to play sitar you HAVE to grow out your hair, never shave, and consume copious amounts of cannibus.

actually,
i have modded a telecaster into a sitar before.
just to get the tone,
and still play guitar oriented things.
If you can get your hands on an old
Danelectro sitar,thats the way to go.

Get it,
just so you can play this intro
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

Like an ulcer in the stomach of the beast

Cool, I saw a Sitarist in India, he was amazing...and a hash smoker....coool

I do have a sitar, and I will tell you now, be ready for intense finger pain to start off with. Straight frets found on guitars and basses are luxury in comparison to the curved frets of a sitar.

Also, knowledge of things such as microtones, the sympathetic strings and one or two ragas will be a considerably good first step.

EDIT: And how could I forget tuning? Utter, utter bitch. Forget 6 strings. My sitar has 21.
