Guitar Chords: Ala Barfi

This entry is part 32 of 38 in the series Guitar

This earthly song from Barfi! movie strikes the chord with the seventies and early eighties. Those who have heard the Murphy radio with their grand parents would relate much better. I prefer the Swanand Kirkire rendition with vocals coming straight through the heart.

Strumming Pattern

There are around 3 basic strumming patterns in this song. One for the normal stanzas and other two for stanza ending and chorus.

  1. Normal Song (pattern1): D DU(muted) D DU(muted)
  2. Ghus fus ghus fus (pattern2): D(muted) U(muted) D(muted) U(muted) D(ring and mute) D(ring and mute). Typically G(down) G(up) G(down) G(up) G(down) G(up) G(ring) wait and C(ring). Pattern stays same for “kabhi na rukta ye re..”
  3. Khur khur pattern: Play same as Ghus fus but the C chord and D chord has to be strung only once
    like G(D) G(U) G(D) G(U) G(D) G(U) C(single downstroke) D(single downstroke)
