An excellent demonstration of the use of shruti within Indian classical music.

The ghar instruction which appears in some shabds in Gurbani refers to greh (home note) - as per pre-medieval Indian musical written tradition.

The ghar over-rides the vaadi or King note in a raag - in the same way as when a guest visits a family the guest takes priority over even the breadwinner of the household.

Gurbani ghar instructions range from shruti 1 to 17.
