    This is my maiden attempt to find the chord by listening and trying the root note and base chord.

    I got the following:

    The song is in C Minor and the melody starts in C note itself.

    I distinctly identified the A# and G # in the pallavi.

    To my surprise, I could not get the family chord anywhere and hence I am puzzled.

    Can anyone please help me in getting the chord for this song. It has an amazing strumming pattern. You will get it easily if you hear the rhythm and drum beats.

    Here is the song..... Chinna Mani Kuyile - Amman Koyil Kizhakkale - YouTube

    I am also too poor in transcribing the chords. Requesting experts to pen down the chords for this lovely number..... Sathya

    I remember the original in Cm, YouTube version might be defective. Thought chords was transcribed in IKF, couldn't find it now.

    I did not try the U-Tube version. I just listened to the song downloaded from in my IPOD. I was trying to find the first note using my ear and then arrived at the chord. But when I play B Minor, I do get the song flowing.

    Yes, if I start in C Minor, I am not getting F and G & this puzzled me.

    Jimi - Can you put down the chords starting from B Minor. I will certainly try that. But one thing is that there are not much chord variation in the song - mainly revolving around the base chord........... Sathya

    There is one more reason for why I was comfortable with C note and concluded that the song is in C Minor. The melody starts in the root note but at the higher octave....... and the difference in only a half note........ Sathya

    Thanks a ton Jimi. I am now convinced that the song is in B Minor only. Your chords perfectly follow what I tried today evening. I could not get the chords correctly in the charanam part in my individual attempt. As I perceived, there is not much chord changes in this song and your version also supports that. I really loved playing this. The C Minor perception could be a mistake due to tuning issue also. When I checked my guitar's tuning and played, I could see B Minor. Thanks a lot for your efforts and time..... Sathya

    Thank you, Sathya for bringing this song request.
    Thank you Jimi, Very nice chords.
    To me, the Cm version works well with the Youtube version of the song.
    As Senthil said, I have observed for many songs that the Youtube version is a semitone or tone off, don't if it is as a result of digitization.

    I started with C Minor and later was comfortable with B Minor. I leave it to the users to follow whatever they are comfortable.

    I will continue to use B Minor only.......... Sathya
