Guitar Chords: Aao Milo Chale, Jab We Met

On first hearing itself , the song struck the right chords (in relation to me, of course!). Its a wonderful song from a wonderful movie. I think after Chak De, this is the best movie in the year 2007. Again, this song provides a lot to learn & play for acoustic guitar lovers. Especially the chord timing of the interludes are a bit unusual but not at all tough to play. Hope you like playing this song as much as I did. Do pitch in with your suggestion to improve the chords!

Guitar Chords: Saawariya (Title Song)

Here are chords for another care-free unplugged title song of the film Saawariya. Excellent rhythm… very soothing to the ears! I think for the first part the strumming pattern is like this: |DD- -|U-U-|D-DU| For the remaining pattern, just listen to the song. So here are the chords. INTRO (A) Saawariya aa aa aa aaa… (F#m) Saawariya aa aa aaa… (Bm) Saawariya… (A) ho… saawariya.

Guitar Chords: Luka Chuppi, Rang De Basanti

Another masterpiece from the maestro A R Rahman. The magic that he creates with a single instrument and especially the guitar is an inspiration for all aspiring guitarists. I got the chords of Luka Chuppi, Rang De Basanti from and they are almost perfect! The strumming pattern should be something like this: | D UDUD | UDUDUDU | Variation (used occasionally) |D DUDUD | UDUDUDU | Chord chart: A 002220 Asus2 002200 Aadd9 077600 B* 024440 B5 024400 Badd11 099800 C#m* 046650 E 022100 E5 079900 Emaj7(3) 079800 (*) indicates that the chord is modified by unfretting the 1st (high E) | E5 Emaj7 | E5 Emaj7 | E Emaj7 | Aadd9 Bad11 | | E5 Emaj7 | E5 Emaj7…

Guitar Arpeggio: Wake Me Up When September Ends, Green Day

There once was much debate about what this song was about, one of the most common initial beliefs, and still a very prevalent one at that, being that it is about 9/11.

In this melancholy ballad, Billie Joe, backed by the support of the other members of Green Day, takes a trip back to his painful childhood and thinks about the day he lost his innocence when his father died. Like many faced with such a traumatic event, Billie…
