In a common North Indian notation system, capital letter abbreviations are used for the version of the note that is highest in pitch and lower case letters for the note version lowest in pitch. For example, using this notation system, this is how a Western chromatic scale would be written:. Purple Raga To improvise within Purple Raga, one should first practice the ascending and descending scales. This allows a raga to prescribe more than simply a mode and to include melodic instructions within the rule set.
The heart phrase exemplifies an important melodic pattern for the raga.

Try playing sections of the heart phrase in various octaves to emphasize the purple part of the raga. While one could play "Purple Haze" using these melodic instructions, an unlimited number of improvisations in a similar tonal mood are also possible. On my Seven Serenades for Scalloped Fretboard Guitar release, rather than playing "Purple Haze," I instead improvised a contemporary interpretation of the North Indian musical form known as alap a rubato exploration of melody without rhythmic accompaniment.
Each raga has a patron god or goddess, which in this case has to be the god of rock guitar. Matthew Montfort scalloped fretboard guitar , Alan Tower didjeridu.
