The movie was a great watch as well. But as you would expect, this is not an easy song to play. Unless you know barre chords, this song would be very difficult to play. I am not sure how good it will sound with a capo on the first fret (haven't tried).Ye Jo Des Hai Tera is in the key of C# which has all sharp notes. So almost all of the chords that you need to play here are sharp...

Guitar Chords: Kahin To, Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na (JTYJN)

Wow! What to say about this song? The more I hear it, the more I love it. I think it is the most pleasurable sad song we have come across! The singers selected by A R Rahman are exquisite in their own way. Rashid Ali has really sung it well! Ok, about the chords of this song, they are quite simple and you need to know a few barre chords to be able to play this. I prefer to play the root and notes of a chord separately since it is a slow song. But if you listen to the second stanza, you can play continous strumming as well....
