The tingling notes of this instrument are incredibly hard to produce, and don't come out right until the user has hard callouses and black grooves on his fingers to show for it. From George Harrison to Jonny Jakobsen, it has had admirers overseas, while India has produced masters who can only be listened to in humble admiration.
