    Like I said before, mine only has notes on 1 side, so can't help on that question. There are a couple of publications in English available on Amaz, though haven't tried them myself. Suggest getting hold of some recorded music, listening to it and then working it out yourself. Alternatively, there are vids on YTube to watch and then listen to what the instrument sounds like when you blow and use the fingerings of it.

    My shehnai has 8 holes. All are on the upper side.

    Ah, I've just realised this content is really old and probably out of date!

    I've found that I need to make a gap between the central reeds, so there is an oval hole to blow into. I have read that it's possibly a good idea to leave a toothpick (or similar object - eg. a matchstick) in between the central reeds after soaking them. Like the person above has said, if you soak the reeds, only soak them for a short time - the toothpick/matchstick can be left in overnight.
