Chalte Chalte This gem of yester-years, Chalte Chalte from the movie with same name is a treat to listen. And it’s even bigger treat to play on the guitar. Bappi Lahiri has done magic with the music and the voice of Kishore Kumar adds to the charm.

The song is in the key of F#m. You will need to know barre chords to play the song well. You can also use capo on 2nd fret to change the scale to Em. But with barre chords, you can mute the strumming.

Chords used in the song:

F#m D C#

E A F#

B Bm E7

There are two strumming patterns that I feel can be used based on your preference. The easier one:

| 1&2& | 3&4& |
| DU-U | D--- |

and a little complex (but same number of strokes) one:

| 1&2& | 3&4& |
| D-DU | -U-- |

In both patterns, mute the UP strokes by loosening the grip of the left hand holding the chord shape.

Here goes the song:
