    Kal Ho Na Ho is in the key of C major.

    Starting from "Har ghadi badal...." upto the chorus there are just 3 chords - C, Em and F.

    Its is also a simple 4x4 song with a tempo of about 83-84 BPM. So setup a metronome at about 84 bpm and follow this chord sequence:

    C......................................Em
    Har Ghadi Badal Rahi Hai....Roop Zindagi

    C..........................................Em
    Chaaon Hai Kabhi Kabhi Hai....Dhoop Zindagi

    ...............F......................C
    Har Pal Yahaan...Ji Bhar Jeeyo

    .............F........................C
    Jo Hai Samaa....Kal Ho Na Ho

    Make sure the chord changes are at the right places in the lines as shown above. For eg. in the 3rd line, you continue on Em for "Har Pal Ya.." and shift to F on the "haan" portion of yahaan etc. I know it sounds a little confusing but i'm hoping you get it...:)

    For simplicity, start by playing a single strum (downward) for every chord for 4 counts. Tap your foot along with the metronome. You'll definately get the timing right. This is what I'm talking about:

    / C C C C/ Em Em Em Em /

    / C C C C/ Em Em Em Em /

    /F F F F/ C C C C/

    /F F F F/ C C C C/

    As far as the actual strumming goes, quite frankly, it varies from person to person. I guess once you get the timing and chord changes right, you can start improvising by strumming up and down and following a pattern like:

    v......^ v....^ v...^ v ^ v ^v.......^ v..^ v
    Har Ghadi Badal Rahi Hai....Roop Zindagi

    (where v is a downstroke and ^ denotes upstroke)

    I hope you can get something out of this!!..:D

    Cheers!
