Probably not quite what you are looking for, but the power and effect of raags is only half the equation, the raag in it self only has a worldly effect, it is bani that has the spiritual and more important effect.

However, Guru Nanak and Bhai Mardana's relationship was 2 fold, to conquer mans mind and soul...

The power of raag and associated Gur-bani is that it brings equilabrium to ones jeevan. If one is yearning or experiencing sadness, then doing kirtan in of maajh shabd will unlock ones, focus and release ones emotions to the Lord. This is a complex subject, and one that is being researched. Listening to too much of one raag in my opnion can also be bad, it's always best to have a healthy balance.

There is definately healing power in raag kirtan if one understands the raag and more importantly related the bani....

Here are the moods of raag and the associated ang in Gur-bani in which they are contained:

If you had the information of all raags, you would have said 60 raags instead of 31 raags.

31 Ragas mate with 6 additional that were added by gurus and are mixed in in with the 31. These ae Asawari, kafi, hindol, lalit, bhopai and vibas

There are a total of 60 raags or melodies within the Guru Granth Sahib.

Each melody sets a particular mood for the hymn, adding a deeper dimension to it.

The Guru Granth Sahib is incorrectly thought by many to have just 31 raags or melodies.

Out of the 60 raags or melodies, 39 are classical raags or classical melodies and 21 are mishrat raags or mishra raags which are mixed melodies created by blending together two raags or melodies to create an entirely new and independent raag or melody. The primary raag or melody contains the main foundation, identity and characteristic which is then influenced by the secondary raag or melody.

Please find below the list of raags and their associated page (correctly called an Ang or limb) within the Guru Granth Sahib:

Awesomeness. 

Is there any resource that has a basic definition and example of each of the Raags and tabla beats employed in Kirtan?

The "notes" and "scales" if you will, are different yes, than western music theory?

If that's the case it would be cool to remap a keyboard with Raag keys instead.
