In 2006, Guitar Atlas: India and its author Sanjay Mishra were featured on NPR radio's "Sanjay Mishra: A Cross-Cultural Exploration in Music."

Whether you play jazz, rock, blues, or any other style, this book will infuse the beautiful musical language of India into your playing. Explore ornamentation, modes, and rhythms of folk music from Darjeeling, Assam, Bengal, and other regions. Learn how ragas are structured, and discover the subtle, graceful improvisational art form of Hindustani music. The examples and compositions throughout all 48 pages are presented in standard notation and TAB, and are demonstrated in an enclosed CD.
