Hi all

Not sure if anyone at IndiaMike can help me. I am a professional guitarist going to India in december this year (flying in to Delhi).
I'd like to stop for a few weeks to take lessons and buy a hindustani slide guitar.

I'm aware that Kolkata is the place to go unless anyone knows different? I'm emailed Debashish Bhattacharyat's school a number of times but they never respond.
Can someone suggest anyone else for good lessons? In Kolkata? or elsewhere?
and to buy an instrument too.

Thanks John

Vishwamohan Bhatt plays something called Mohan Veena, which is basically a modified slide guitar: http://www.vishwamohanbhatt.com/index.htm.

Maybe you might find it to be of some use? His son plays too.

thanks Bitches brew. Yes ,very aware of V. M . Bhatt. Was fortunate enough to see him play a decade or so ago as well as have several of his cds. Amazing dude. All these guys like him are far too busy and expensive for a semi pro like myself. Fortunately, even the unknown players are amazing, such are the standards in Indian Classical music and should fall in my price range, etc. I'm getting a few leads now so should be cool...thanks again
