Main Tenu Samjhawa Ki Rahet fateh ali khan

This song, Main Tenu Samjhawa Ki, has so many versions. Initially I was confused and had to Google and Youtube the song to find out. As it so happens, the song has been re-used in a recent movie called ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’. Then Alia Bhatt decided to make her own unplugged version.

But I liked the original version by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan the best. And I am sure most of you feel the same. His voice cannot be replaced in this song. And so I decided to post his version of the song here.

The song is in the key of D# so it would be be a good idea to use capo to change the key to D.

Chords used in the song:

D# Bb G# Cm Fm

Using capo on 1st fret, chords become very simple:

D A G Bm Em

The strumming pattern is simple but with an interesting technique called right hand muting. In this technique you mute the strings using right hand palm in one of the strokes. Another song which uses this technique is Tu Hai from the movie Besharam. The pattern is exactly same.
