Tere Bina Jiya Jaye Na ‘Tere Bina Jiya Jaye Na’ is one of my favorite R D Burman song sung beautifully by Lata Mangeshkar. If you have not heard of this song, I urge you to listen the beautiful rhythm and strumming of the guitar.

In the key of G, the song uses simple chords like G, F, C and few others. But I would recommend playing barre chords so that you can use the left-hand muting technique easily which is a must for sounding like original.

Strumming pattern is simple but most of it is muting partially as well as fully (you can play without muting but it won’t sound like original):

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

Mute the first bar using left hand muting (loosen the grip on the left hand after striking the chord). For the second bar, mute the sound completely so that only the sound of hitting comes out. None of the stroke should sound full here. The only complete strumming happens when you have to stop the strumming and let the chord ring.

Finally, here goes the song:
