Wake Up Sid

Some songs can be so beautiful and so touching that you can feel the beats vibrating your hair follicles! As I am understanding music bit by bit with every song, I realize one fact that the greatest of the songs are composed with some of the basic chords that you might have been playing since long. It is the innovativeness and the skill of the musician which makes the song sound so wonderful.

Yesterday, I watched the movie Wake Up Sid. Very cool movie, a must-watch for every youngster as it touches many aspects of life, the most important being having a soul mate to enjoy the journey of life as you accomplish your goals.

The song uses basic open chords, and the strumming pattern is also simple, though it would require some practice for beginners. There are 2 strumming patterns with slight variation:

Strumming Pattern 1
| D | D- -D | UDU- | D |

Strumming Pattern 2
| D-U- | D- -D | UDU- | D |

Starting tune… Play chords (G) and (C)
