Kabira Guitar Chords from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani

There are some songs that will always remain evergreen. Whatever it may be but these songs are like old wine- that become fresh and better with time. Kabira from Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani is that song. Performed by the mesmerizing Rekha Bhardwaj and the mellifluous Tochi Raina, this number has been composed by the maestro Pritam himself and penned by the poetic Amitabh Bhattacharya. The song hails from the pop and the Sufi genre, and has a very soulful tune with a signature 4/4 beat and a moderately paced tempo. The melody very beautifully uses the different guitars, the drums and other percussion instruments to create this wonderful symphony. The chords on the guitar are simple and the beginners can strum them easily. The harmonious progression of the chords and that feet tapping beat with the serenading tune is indeed pleasant to the ears.
