Gur Shabad Kirtan is a notation player and introduces to the 31 Raagas in Guru Granth Sahib Ji and beautiful compositions made available by great Gur Sikh Raagis.

Inspiration to design this application comes from the fact that there are some of the best books available by great composers/raagis who have added notations in various taals in the designated Raagas. Couple of books by Dr. Gurnam Singh Ji and Bhai Avtar Singh Ji and Gurcharan Singh Ji. For such notations, beginners find difficult to read those notations. To make it easy, there are tons of online videos, many of Kirtanias have contributed.

This application is a notation/audio player rather than a complete resource to learn Gurmat Kirtan. And makes the loop playback easy. Once you understand the notation/composition/rhythm you can fine tune with/without your favourite Instrument.

Before you use the application software, please read carefully and understand the features and limitations.
