Sarang on fretless guitar

Welcome friends to the Raga Jazz blog! My intention with this blog is to my first piece I wanted to share here is an excerpt from a guitar piece improvisation played on this super glangin Godin freltess guitar. This thing plays like butter! I tracked one take and then had a musical conversation on another take with the first one. I think it came out interesting. This improvisation is based on an North Indian afternoon raga called Sarang. Sarang is actually a family of afternoon ragas comprising a number of related ragas (traditional melodic forms). *Look for an upcoming post of my article 'What is Raga?'.
