Bollywood - Soch Na Sake

Here's another Bollywood student request, this beautiful song Soch Na Sake.  I have three separate videos highlighting the intro, strumming pattern and the mandolin solo.  In all the videos I have the capo at the second fret.  The song is in the key of A, but I am playing it like it is in the key of G (Capo 2nd fret).  The opening chords are G, Em, C add9, G.

Notice the hammer-on from the first to second note.  Play the first note and then hammer your next finger onto the next fret.  The intro is made up of mostly sixteenth notes, you might want to alternate pick (down and up) through the notes so that you can eventually play this up to speed.

The basic strumming pattern to this song is D - U - U - D - U.  This is a good "campfire" strum for the entire song.  There is a second guitar/mandolin part that is played along with the chords.  I thought I would try to put both parts together.  It make the chord switches a little tricky.  Notice how I alternate between the first string second and third fret as I strum each chord.  Another way you could do this is have your buddy play the chords, and you play the tricky part, but only play the first 3 strings.  This should make it a little easier.  Again, the chord progression is G, Em, Cadd9, G.


Towards the end of the song, just before the piano solo, there is a mandolin solo.  Here I have it transcribed for the guitar, only it is an octave lower.  Love this part!

If you have any questions, please post them.
