Chords: Hai apna dil toh awara

This entry is part 29 of 32 in the series Guitar

A cousin gifted me a harmonica, and my mama/uncle played an old song hai apna dil toh awara. And I was caught – how could’ve I missed playing this song on a guitar, besides trying to play it on harmonica / mouth organ.

This sweet song just rolls in the key of G, with simple 3 major chords in it, Gmaj, Dmaj and Cmaj

G                          D
