    Sorry getting more and more greedy here. This is one of my ATF. Whenever I hear this song, it makes me sleepless. I hate when people say IR is good for folkish songs only. This is yet another Raja Genre, way ahead of its time (1980) when released. Thanks in advance.

    I won't listen to the audio as my ear is not good enough to find the chords. I play the melody of the song and fill in with the related chords on the landing notes. Pls correct it with appropriate chords.

    My version:

    (Am)Uravenum (Dm)pudhiya vaa(Am)nil
    (Am) Parandhadhe (Dm) idhaya moh(Am)am
    (Am)Odum alai ena (C)manam (G) pohum
    (C)Kanavilum (Am)pababapa
    (C)Ninaivilum (Am)pababapa
    (C)Pudhu sugam (Am)pababapa

    (C) Paarvai ovvondrum koorum
    (G) Pon (E) kaaviyam (Am)
    (C) Paavai engindra kolam

    Thanks a lot Rajesh. Two questions, 1.Do you use keyboard to confirm the chords or totally by just hearing only? 2. Does the chords have any of your own improvisation? I am asking this follow ur foot steps.

    Oh no...I don't improvise. I don't think I can. This is what I can hear in the song.
    Of course, I play the chord and sing along to see if it fits well. Most often it will.
    If not, I listen again and try few other chords till I'm happy with what I've got.
    It may not be always possible to reproduce the exact chord which the composer had used (add11 and add6 can be impossible to hear).
    Getting as close as possible to the original is what I strive for.

    Guitarsen & Rajesh,
    What a beautiful song and hearty thanks to both of you for selecting, transcribing this song.

    Hi Rajesh,
    Can you please tell us if you use the guitar or piano for identifying the chords?
    Curious to know..
