Hey Guys?

What exactly is the 'Carnatic Style' of guitar playing?

As far as I can tell, it's a part of Indian Classical music. I'm from Goa and musicians over here grow up listening to western music as a result of the Portuguese influence. So despite technically being Indian, I have no idea what this style actually encompasses.

As per my understanding, all the "Carnatic' style songs I have heard, show guitar players who try to emulate the Sitar and Veena tones.

Could anyone who knows about it, elaborate?

Thank you!

The greater the similarity, the more of a total ****ing **** they are.

This might be better asked over in Musician Talk. I wouldn't rule out getting decent answers in here but I think there would be better.

Oh okay. I was actually confused where to put it.
Can a mod move the thread, please?

I guess this is a good place as any to ask this question, and it is sitar related - has anyone bought and/or used an Electro-Harmonix Ravish Sitar pedal..? I've always loved the sound of the sitar and was thinking about getting one in a few months.
