Guitar has become a part of my life from the past one and a half years. I had grown so fond of it that it is hard to imagine life without the sound of strings. After a day packed with meetings, discussions, coding and fixing issues, I go home tired, I pick up my acoustic guitar and start strumming. The sound of the string instrument seems to be so magical, and so relaxing. It started as a hobby, and has become an addiction. A really good addiction.
The magic of the guitar strumming lies in the Chords and the chord progressions. Different types of chord progressions give different feel to the strumming, be it romantic, rock or melancholy. One can actually observe the change in feel of the part of the song, when changing chords.
I particularly play a lot of romantic songs. Few of the songs which I like playing are neele neele ambar par(Kalakaar),Churaliya hai tumne jo dil ko(Yaadon ki baarat), Kya mujhe pyaar hai(woh lamhe)etc, Pehli nazar mein(Race), AAdat, Naalone pongenu narmada(Surya s/o Krishnan), My heart is beating (Jalsa).
I had been playing electric for a few weeks, but nothing can really replace the magical and sensuous sound of the acoustic guitar.
