    Crash course and Sitar or Veena are mutually EXclusive terms. They do not co-exist. Perhaps it has changed so you do not sit for years as an apprentice and learn to help maintain the master's instrument, and sit and listen and learn before you can even touch an instrument, but there is no crash course to learn an instrument for which the music is universally so complex, sophisticated and virtuosic.

    You might as well ask if there is a crash course in piano that would get you quickly to playing all the Chopin Etudes.

    best regards.
