Guitar Chords: Mast Magan, 2 States [2014]

2 States seems to be one of the highly awaited movies of the year till now without any presence of the 3 Khan's. The songs were recently released and one song that I really liked was Mast Magan. I am enjoying Chaandaniya too and it might be the next song I post here. Mast Magan is a soft romantic number with a very ethereal feel. It is in the key of G major scale. One of my favorite guitar songs in the key of G is Time of your Life by Greenday. Almost all chords are common between these songs. Mast Magan has really simple chords and will be fun to play once you get the strumming right. Check out…

Guitar Chords: Mitwa, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna

The song Mitwa from the movie Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna is another gem from Shankar Ehsaan Loy (SEL) camp. In the key of E major scale, the song uses quite a few chords. But Ehsaan has done a lot of subtle variations to the chords that makes playing this song lot more difficult if you looking to sound like the recording track. The song uses one trick or rather a form of chords that I have mostly seen used in English songs. One such song that comes to mind is Yellow by the band Coldplay which incidentally uses similar set of chords. The trick is to always keep the thinnest two strings (E and B) open. Even while playing barre…

Guitar Chords: Senorita, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara [2011]

Senorita is a beautiful Spanish song from one of the superhit movie of this year, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. I am a bit late in posting this but I hope it is useful for all of you. First question in everybody's mind I am sure is: "What is the strumming pattern?" It may sound difficult but it is actually very easy. Here it is: | 1&2& | 3&4& | 5&6& | 7&8& | | D--U | --D- | -U-U | -UDU | The first three bars are the important ones. A DOWN stroke, an UP stroke and a DOWN stroke followed by two UP strokes. The last bar is only there to add rhythm following up to the first bar.…

Guitar Chords: Noor E Khuda, My Name Is Khan (MNIK)

Noor E Khuda is another melodious song from Shanker Ehsaan Loy camp. It is sung by Shankar Mahadevan and Adnan Sami along with the beautiful voice of Shreya Goshal. As it happens with most SEL songs, the more you listen, the more you love it! The chords are fairly simple though barre chords will be preferred. The strumming pattern is also uncomplicated. Strumming Pattern | 1 & 2 & | 3 & 4 & | | D - D U | - U D - | (D)Noor-e-Khuda ... (G)Ooooo ... (A)Oooo ... (D)Noor-e-Khuda ... (D) ... (D) ... (D) Ajna(G)bi mod (D)pe ...

This is a very beautiful and joyous song good enough to set you high on ecstasy.

Coz this song is just right for you. The strumming pattern, as I said before, is the one used for the song Papa Kehte Hai. It goes like this: | D-DU | -UDU | (more…)

Guitar Chords: Yeh Zindagi Bhi, Luck By Chance

Farhan Akhtar showcased his talent once again with his superb acting and exquisite dancing as though Hrithik is in a different league altogether. Most of the songs are just ok, but this song strikes you softly and I like to keep on hearing it again and again. The song uses some blues chords as well. Nice opportunity to learn some of them. The chords are listed at the end of the song. The beats are prominent for MUKHDA(s) MUKHDA 1 Yeh zindagi bhi kya kya hamko dikhlati hai sapno ki dhundli raah mein yeh zindagi bhi hume kahan leke aa jati hai ek anjaani si chaah mein Ja(D)ne hum(G)ko kya (C)pana hai Socho kya (D)hai ap(Bm7)ni man(Am7)zil Sam(D)jhane (G)se kab…
