Pehli Nazar Mein, RaceI had been getting a lot of request to post the chords of Pehli Nazar Mein from the movie Race. The only reason why I had not posted it yet was because I didn’t have the time to do it. I like to hear this song more than playing it on guitar but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t worth playing. The good thing about Atif Aslam songs are that they are usually based on open chords and so are easier for newbies. But this song has one barre chord as well. So here goes…

The strumming pattern of this song can be done in two ways: One is the traditional Papa Kehte Hai style but I don’t think it would appeal to many. So the alternative is:
| D – | D – | DDU- | DUDU |
which sounds more like original.

The basic chord pattern of this song according to me is
A – E – F#m – E
upon which the whole song seems to be developed.

Chords in the song

The usual A, E and F#m (222442) only. No more!

If the F#m chord is modified slightly to get (224422), you get the most important chord of the song Kholo Kholo from Taare Zameen Par. I love to locate connections! 🙂

Before delving into the chords there is a riff played in the background which needs to be mentioned.

E-------------------------------------
B---10-----9----9---7------7---9---10-
G---11----------9---7------7---9---11-
D-------11----------------------------
A-------------------------------------
E-------------------------------------

Practice the above riff to make it sound perfect. This is played most of the time and also in the absence of vocals.
