Guitar Chords/Tabs: Challa, Jab Tak Hai Jaan [2012]

Diwali is around the corner and no surprise the slot has been taken by Yash Chopra's SRK starrer JAB TAK HAI JAAN. On paper, this movie ticks all the right things including the music by A R Rahman. We will have to wait and see how good the movie is. Challa is a sweet Punjabi song in which we can see SRK strumming the guitar though not very convincingly. The song is in the key of Am with relatively easy chords which can be played in open shape. Go ahead try out the song and let me know how it feels! (INTRO) 5/(.5) -> Quarter Bend ~/7 -> Slide to 7th fret (v) -> Vibrato (MUKHDA) (Dm)Challa ki labh da…

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/Tabs: Tu Jaane Na, Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani

The unplugged version of Tu Jaane Na from the upcoming movie Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani is done by the talented trio of Kailash Kher, Paresh and Naresh. Although the Atif Aslam version is equally good, guitar enthusiasts will enjoy the unplugged version more. It is a beautiful song with deep and long lyrics. Kailash Kher has sung it exceptionally well. The song is in the key of A major. Some of the chords used here are similar to the song Kahin To, from Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na which was in the scale of A#. You will need to master barre chords to be able to play this song. Thanx to my old time friend for bringing this song…

Guitar Chords: Tune Jo Na Kaha, New York [2009]

Oh what a beautiful song it is !! The melancholic music of Tune Jo Na Kaha comes out subtly in the use of minor chords in the root notes. Mohit Chauhan has sung it very well. Though the song can be related very easily to other such sad songs, it still succeeds in bringing a refreshing appeal to the listener. The chords used in the song are simply F, C, A# and Dm. Though it can be played with open chords, I prefer to play it with barre chords. x 4 times Tune (F)jo na kaha ... main wo (A#)sunta Khamo (F)kha, bewajah ... khwaab (F)bunta raha ... x 2 times Tune (F)jo, na ka(C)ha ... main wo (A#)sunta ra(F)…

Guitar Chords: Hai Junoon, New York [2009]

This is an excellent song with very simple basic music which any beginner guitarist can play. The song uses suspended versions of D chord just like in the song Summer of 69. Nothing much to say about the guitar part. It's pretty straight-forward. Again, this song was brought to my notice by a very special friend of mine who has been instrumental in keeping me informed about new songs which are based on guitar at the right time. Thanx dear! I won't be surprised if this song becomes the new symbol of the young generation! The following strumming pattern can be used: D - | D - | U-UD | D U INTRO x2 (D)Na Na(Dsus4)nana na na(A)na Nana na…
