Amazing song which was royally messed up by the Indian Idols. Alright, Pal probably has 100 different versions floating around on IGT. I skimmed through a few, put in my own improvisations and this is what I came up with - which is why it's not *entirely* my own work. I had most of the tabs out here as guidelines. It's not perfect but sounds decent ... ========== I know I'm probably complicating the song needlessly. This is just the way I enjoy playing this particular song. ========== E = xx6454, unless mentioned otherwise. A = 577655, unless mentioned otherwise. B = 799866, unless mentioned otherwise. C#m = x x 14 13 14 12. G#m = 11 11 13 13 12 11. F#m = 9 9 11 11 10 9 =========== Arpeggioed chords out here, you can try finger-picking if you are good at it! [E] Hum rahe ya na rahe [A] kal [A] Kal yaad aayenge yeh pal [E] Pal, yeh hain pyaar ke [A] pal [A] Chal, aa mere sang chal [C#m] Chal, soche kya Chhoti si [A] hai zindagi [E] [C#m] Kal mil jaaye to [A] hogi khushnaseebi [E] Hum rahe ya [A] na rahe, yaad [B 224442] aayenge yeh [E 022100] pal Then the above repeats with strumming ... ======== |Da Db DbUb DbUb Da Db| is the pattern I follow. DbUb is in just one beat - both of them.Mute both the single Dbs. Da=Down stroke thick strings, Db = Down stroke thin strings, Ua = Up stoke thick strings, Ub = Up stroke thin strings. ======== [G#m] Shaam ka [A 126.96.36.199.14.12]aanchal [G#m] odhke [A 188.8.131.52.14.12] aayi [F#m] Dekho voh raat suhaani [G#m] Aa likh de [A 184.108.40.206.14.12] hum [G#m] donon [A 220.127.116.11.14.12] milke [F#m] Apni yeh prem kahaani [A] [G#m] [E 022100] [E] Hum rahe ya [A] na rahe, yaad [B 224442] aayenge yeh [E 022100] pal Then comes the beautiful solo, which has been perfectly tabbed by Subhro. And then the final lines ... Aane waali subah jaane Rang kya laaye deewaani Meri chaahat ko rakh lena Jaise koi nishaani Hum rahe ya na rahe, yaad aayenge yeh pal ============ Suggestions/corrections/reps/replies welcome. - Raj.
