    Welcome Rohan, great going
    chk thread
    Also browse beginner forums or do a search. Lot of discussions on this available here. Follow the one that works for u.

    Do u have access to guitar class? Can u explain rythms like soul bosanova etc?
    If u have access to a live show video of the original arist, try to see how they r playing. I think to start with u can play open or barre as comfortable to u, until ur ears become sharper. someday when u feel it doesn't sound like original, then try other positions. Practice barre a lot, they r really useful. Which songs are trying to learn?

    also don't post email address here. can help spam mailers, rgds

    i think u should start with the "ding dong song" or "yanki-doodle" and forget these songs .. they won't help you .. u will stuck in 3 chords for the rest of your life like jal and atif lol which is true

    SG, hehe u really don't like JAL songs? 3 chords or less, they are hugely successful at a young age and popular with young generations. A fact

    donno much about Tere Bin. Woh Lamhe seems comparatively simple strumming. Aadat seems just an improvement of Woh Lamhe. Lot of people have covered these here on IGT sound track. They should be able to help you more. Listen to original until rythm is fixed in mind. Barre chords are used, i think. If u listen carefully there might be finger (squeak) noise indicating liely chord change. I hope u will get lot of help. If nobody responds I will try to help though i am not myself good playing. rgds
