For the chorus parts, try |DD_(DU)|

For the verses, try |DU(DD)U|

Between the meter chord changes occur throughout the song.

Playings Tips and Song Notes:
This song can give any beginner (I dare say, anyone) nightmares. The song is melodically very complex. Its a treat to learn. You need the chords reference next to you when you play this one. Its going to be hard but once you've mastered it, its going to be more rewarding than most other songs. Try singing along or playing along with the track to grasp where the chords change and how. This song is not one amenable to a days work, so keep at at.

The song is based on the Scottish piece Auld Lang Syne. The melodic structure has been preserved for the most part but the tempo has been hastened. The original was a 3-4 chord soft piece that has been transformed into an extravagantly complex progression. The straight-cut use of a descending chromatic scale segment is also observed in the 5th and 6th verse - this indeed is a rare find.

The song preserves the melancholy of the original and transforms the scene from the serene Scottish heights to the cacophonous urban cafe, and quite successfully striking the same emotional chords with the audience in the process. The song has captivated the heart sad minds of the lovers of Bengali music and much more so for those who frequent the old Indian Coffee House in College Street, Kolkata - a haunt of the city's intelligentsia. The song has become, almost a anthem for the city - an achievement unbeknown to any other.

Difficulty: Medium to Expert level (Beginners must try never the less!)
