My latest piano solo ‘Teri Yaad’ (reprise version), is a song which is probably my most favourite from the recent Bollywood soundtrack of ‘Teraa Surroor’.
It is the fourth song that I have learnt to play this year, without any written music as a guide. It is also the fourth song that I have learnt (after the Sanam Teri Kasam title track, Bewajah & Main Woh Chaand) by my favourite Bollywood musician Himesh Reshammiya.
During ‘Teraa Surroor’ promotions, Himeshji had said that he dedicates ‘Teri Yaad’ to all of his fans. I am dedicating my piano solo of ‘Teri Yaad’ to him. I have played the reprise version, and only the first two lines may sound slightly different to the song itself, as I felt they sounded better on the piano with the added higher ornamental sound. I simply fell in love with the melody and the nostalgia that it brings with it. I give myself extra marks for learning the wonderful piano rift played at the beginning of the song. I feel that it is generally harder to learn such piano rifts by ear.
Listen to my piano solo below and then the original song. Feedback is always welcome!
