Tribute to Jagjit Singh-Aah Ko Chahiye

Nov 06 2011

Tried to figure out a few of Jagjit Singh’s Ghazals late last night on Guitar..especially this rendition of Asadullah Khan Mirza Ghalib‘s Aah Ko Chahiye by Jagjit Singh. Here’s the first draft in B minor scale.

My humble tribute to the Legendary Late Jagjit (Ghazaljeet) Singh. Volume is a bit low, so raise it up please.

Aah ko chaahiye ik umr asar hone tak
Kaun jeeta hai terii zulf ke sar hone tak

Aashiqii sabr-talab aur tamannaa betaab
Dil kaa kyaa rang karun khoon e jigar hone tak

Ham ne maanaa ke tagaaful na karoge lekin
Khaak ho jaayenge ham tumko Khabar hone tak

Gam e hasti kaa ‘Asad’ kis se ho juz marg ilaaj
Shamma har rang men jalatii hai sahar hone tak.
