    Alaigal Oaivadhillai – A blockbuster film in the year 1981.

    IR got a grand recognition for the music – with 12 songs including 2 carnatic bits

    This song is a superb slow melody – By IR and one Jency (one of IR’s favorite)

    The chords for this song were already discussed in this Forum and the link is here:

    http://www.indianguitartabs.com/f20/kadhal-oviyam-chords-6533.html

    I have compiled the following using input from this thread, but with slight modification. You can try and suggest if there is any correction.

    (A)Kaadhal (D)oviyam (A)paadum (D)kaaviyam
    (A)thaen sin(D)dhum (A)poonjo(D)lai nam raaji(A)yam
    (D)endrum anan(F#)dham (D)perin(F#)bam (D)deivee(F#)ham (Bm)oh oh
    (D)Thedi(F#)naen oh oh en (D)jeevane
    Thendrali(F#)ley midhandhu va(Bm)rum thaen mala(A)re
    (Bm)nee en naayagan kaadhal paadagan
    anbil odi inbam kodi (E)endrum kaanalaam Um Um

    The chords progression does vary in the Charanam (and so also the notes) and I do not get any clue for the same. Even the “E” in the last line was more better for me though it does not belong to D Major chord progression and so also “F#” (F# minor would be the correct for the root chord).

    If someone can tell the logic or the intended variation, it would be a fine learning experience.

    This song is a classic example of using “Bossa Nova” style. If you want to get the original feel of the song, you should try Bossa Nova strumming rhythm. I have not tried this – it comes good in acoustic guitars.

    Can someone please try this and do write the experience?

    Play these chords and enjoy and do post your views / comments………… Sathya
