Mantra Naya

Here is a great finger style Bollywood song.  Keep the following in mind as you practice this song:
1.  Place a capo on fret two. 2.  The intro and first four measures of the verse are on a D chord.  Notice that there is a hammer-on and pull-off on the first string.  Pluck the first string open, then hammer your second finger on the second fret followed by a pull-off.   You will also want to make sure that your third finger is not interfering with the first string, keep it out of the way. 3.  I am playing all the bass notes (strings 4, 5 and 6) with my thumb.  String one is played with the ring finger (a), string two with the middle finger (m), and string three with the index finger (i). 4.  Listen closely to the rhythm, it swings!
