Time Signature and Beat Pattern:
4/4 (fast), does not use off beats (starts from 1st beat. It has several chord changes on the 3rd beat as well, which reiterates this) - (Time signatures explained)

Fundamental Chord Structure:
Basic chord progression: Progression is complex and follows a mix of the bar blues pattern, but utilizing only 4 bars, and rapid between-the-meter chord changes. The chords are from the F major scale, consisting of F,Gm,Bb,C and C7. The commonly occurring sequence is that of the chorus and goes like -

Chorus : |F - Bb - | C7 - F - | Dm - Gm - | Gm C F - |
Verse : |F - Gm - | Bb - F - | F - C - | C7 - F - |

The progression may be taken as a really fast version of the kind of sequence change (not chords) as seen in Pachelbel's Canon in D, a constantly changing yet repeating sequence of chords on a single scale.

Original scale: F major

Chords transposed a scale of C: Chorus : |C - F - | G7 - C - | Am - Dm - | Dm G C - |
Verse : |C - Dm - | F - C - | C - G - | G7 - C - | (6 semitone above this scale)- (Transposition explained)

Roman numeral form notation: Chorus : |I - IV - | V7 - I - | vi - ii - | ii V I - |
Verse: |I - ii - | IV - I - | I - V - | V7 - I - | - (Roman numeral notation explained)

Strum Pattern:
Option 1: Fast strumming - |(DDD)(DDD)(DDD)(DDD)| or |DU'(DD)U'|

Option 2: Another option will be to use the following strum-cum-arpeggio pattern (numbers indicate string number and plus means strummed together):
(root)>3>2>1>2>3 and repeat

Option 3: Play single down-strokes, broken chords or arpeggios.

(Explanation - 4 beats per meter; the stroke that is marked with a (') is played and muted; the beats in brackets are divided into subunits of equal duration as noted). (More on how to read strum patterns)

Between the meter chord changes occur in most meters.

Playings Tips and Song Notes:
The chords are beautiful - typical Manna De. The chords are nearly the same as found in the Bengali nationalist song, Dhana Dhanya Pushpe Bhara, by D L Roy, except for the use of Gm (which may easily be replaced by a Bb) and this song having a faster tempo. Its a great exercise in practicing the important chords in key of F major. Try singing along or playing along with the track to best guess the strum and chord positions. Try practicing arpeggios to this song - its just the right speed for beginners.

The song has a dreamy feel to it. Its one of those hits that made Manna Dey the legend he is.

Difficulty: Beginner level
