    very very good post dude. yoru sense of harmony is very good.
    u seem to have a good carnatic base which si good. but dont get into the bad habit of doing every song in C. C is not sa and sa is not C.

    The song is in Dm, and i am doing this from memory.. so i dont have the charanam and interludes on me..

    but main pallavi u missed a few chords.. or got them slightly different..
    try mine i will give them in Dm..

    Code:
    Oh! Butterfly Butterfly 
     Dm        Gm        Dm      Bb 
     
     yen viriththaai siragai  wow wow 
     C         Dm        Gm    Bb   C 
     
     Oh! Butterfly Butterfly 
     Dm        Gm        Dm      Bb 
     
     yen viriththaai siragai  yeniayum 
     C        Dm        Gm    Am 
     
     neeeeeee arivaayOOOO 
     Dmsus2             Bbadd9 
     
     unakkaagaaaaa thirandhaen manadhin kadavaiiii 
     EbMaj7             C7             C#dim7       Asus4(7)

    The bit when SPB goes "Arugil Nee..." is Cm9th, and "unakkaga thirandhen manadhin kadhavai" ends with a Gsus4 ... got this info from an Ilayraja fan site.

    What a wonderful song this is!

    i heard the CD song is in Dm on my CD.

    Cm9 has the Bb note too. Csus2 or Cmadd9 seems better.
    I have similar progression on Dm scale which is the correct key for the song.

    Jay, I have a doubt ... how do you fix that a song is in a particular scale? I tried playing both these versions and the difference is not very discernible to me ... please understand that I am an absolute beginner wrt guitar!
    Has this something to do with transpositions?

    neeeeeee arivaayOOOO
    Cm9 G#

    unakkaagaaaaa thirandhaen manadhin kadavaiiii
    Fm Bb G# Gsus4

    in Cm scale Should be
    Code:
    neeeeeee arivaayOOOO 
    Cmadd9           Abmaj7 
    
    unakkaagaaaaa thirandhaen manadhin kadavaiiii 
    Dbmaj7      Bb      Fdim7      Gsus4(7) - (G+C+D+F) 
    
    but song is in Dm not Cm, The ilayaraja fan site was wrong.

    Jay: Good to see you here. Decided to come and post some chords here at last!

    Jay's chords are right harmonically. I would just call some chords differently thats all (naming conventions)

    Arugil nee [ Dm(9) ] ....Varuvayoo [ Bb(9) ]
    Unakkaga [ EbM7] Thirandhen [C] Manadin [C#dim] kadavai [A4(7)]

    The numbers in paratheses are added notes. Usually a 9th comes with added 7ths, but not in this case as this is "added" 9th. So D9th is D7th(9).
