Ragas on Guitar


Ragas on Guitar is one of the beautiful & pioneer Indian classical guitar styles, launched as an official guitar program for the first time in musical history.

After extensive research & study of the unique application of Ragas on Guitar, guitarmonk has offered an exclusive study to the world & international community of guitar lovers. Yes, you won’t find this course anywhere across the world.

Furthermore, Ragas on Guitar is also an untouched genre that drives every human into the unmixed world of neat emotions.

Raga is like a hundred times enhancement & improvisation of a scale and there are thousands of ragas in Indian classical music, further having multiple compositions to be played on each raga. A scale never sounds boring, never remains confined and monotonous when allowed to implement ragas.

The surprising fact about Raga scales is the parent scales (known as thaats), which are just 10 in numbers in the North Indian study of Classical Music. Here one can also realize that how these 10 simple scales (thaats) can be enhanced, improvised, and applied in playing of thousands of Ragas and millions of compositions with different moods & feelings on the guitar.

Unique Value of the Raga Course

Masterminded & Taught by Kapil Srivastava

Raga is one of the fruitful subjects that offer a new room and space for an Independent style of Music, that can be played limitless… on the Guitar.” I wonder when plenty of guitarists say that they are not obsessed with scales but chords, I found a new world of infinite explorations in the scales; in fact, I have found my world here through Ragas……Kapil Srivastava



Your honest effort to impart knowledge is clearly visible. I am blessed to have joined this course. I am 50+ And still feel that i can do this. And this is a great feeling. My gratitude and sincere thanks….

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • Who is this program for?

    This program is both for beginners as well as non-beginners, whether you are an aspiring student, teacher, or performer. 

  • Difference between Flavours (with basic guitar) & Flavours course?

    If you are an absolute beginner then you should go with Flavours (with basic guitar) course as it comprises 3 basic sessions (comprising multiple topics) to give you a prelim-idea about the guitar before proceeding with Raga journey.
