kabira-yeh-Jawaani-hai-deewani Kabira is long due on the blog and after getting multiple requests for this song, it had to be posted. Kabira is one of my favorite songs which I have been listening on repeat since it released back in May 2013. Not sure why I never got around to posting it sooner. I also enjoyed the movie… highly uplifting.

The song itself is fairly simple using chords D, G, A and Bm. But the beauty of the song lies in the singing by Rekha Bhardwaj and Tochi Raina. So if you can sing well or get hold of a great singer, strumming the guitar alongside would be fun.

There is no one strumming pattern that will fit the whole song. The beats and tempo varies as the song progresses. The middle to end part of the song can be played with simply DOWN stroke strumming. At the start of the song, finger-picking would be best. Just listen to the song and play along.

Chords are:

D G A Bm

Enjoy the song!
