I am going to be playing for a pre-wedding dinner party. The bride to be is Indian and she asked if I could play the following songs:

Lag Ja Gale

Pehla Nasha

Kal Ho Na Ho

I've been listening to these tunes, and I think I can pull off an instrumental rendition, but it sure would help to have lead sheet or a piano part.

I thought there might be some Indian members here who could assist me with some resources. Any other tune suggestions would be appreciated too. Thank you!

Thank you Taike. I've actually been studying that video. It helps, for sure, but notation would be nice.

Try ripping the audio from the video and just slowing it down. To be honest, a lot of Indian music defies Western transcription, the decoration of the notes is difficult to write properly..!

I adore Indian music, but pulling it off idiomatically is fiendishly difficult for Western musicians, unused to the way they decorate the notes. Best of luck!

Your right, Diki. I probably sound like a bad imitation of Flyod Crammer playing Indian music! Luckily the couple of tunes the bride requested follow pretty standard chord structures.

Also I found out a lot of popular Indian pop tunes are based on English language pop songs. So I be doing some Cold Play, ABBA, Paul Anka, Burt Bacharach and other old standards.... I will be backing up the bride as she sings a Hindi version of 'Mama Mia"

Sure, the event is in the middle of May, so I have a bit of time to prepare.
