Thodi Der - Half Girlfriend - Guitar Cover Lesson Chords easy - shreya ghoshal & farhaan saeed

Song Information: The song begins with a very soothing musical intro with the fusion of the sarangi and the guitar accompanied by a classical alaap by Shreya Ghoshal. The beats don’t begin there and the music itself starts to transport the hearer to another world- the world of love. Then as slowly the song progresses the beats start and it is a very slow and soft beat that is refreshing like the rain after the scorching heat. Through the 4 minutes and 56 seconds of the song, the composer Farhan Saaed himself, captivates us with a very heart rendering, soulful and melodious composition as he synchronizes the guitars with the sarangi, the piano and the harmonium. The song has a very sufi touch to it due to the sarangi and harmonium. What is applaud able here is the fusion of the instrument, and the beautiful music that is born of it.

The lyrics have been penned down by Kumaar and showcases the exact romantic feelings and emotions. The song is about the lover asking his beloved to stay a little longer and not depart early. An intensely emotional song, there is a beautiful smooth flow of the melody with some interludes that solely focus on the vocals and just one instrument like the piano in the background. This makes it a beautiful rendition so pleasing to hear. Shreya Ghoshal as usual mesmerizes us with her classically enriched and extremely sweet voice that makes the hearer drool over the song and keep on playing it on loop. Farhan Saaed also enchants us with his strong and deep voice.
