Day four of the 30-day song challenge is a song that reminds you of someone that you would rather forget. When I started this challenge I felt that learning the songs and coping with the pain that my fingers would feel would be the difficult part but I was wrong. This challenge is starting to bring out a lot of repressed memories which I have so far managed to lock in a nice looking box which was stored somewhere in the depths of my soul. These are songs which I know by heart and I can sing and play in my sleep but I would rather forget because all of these songs caused me to take a different route. I wonder what would have happened if my schoolmate did not permanently “borrow” my collection of 90’s Hard Rock or “Sandy” from Grease but the winner had to be “So Right” from Roadside Romeo because I have absolutely no idea how my life would have changed if I had made that song a reality. I really do not want to go into the reason for it because I have to try and preserve my emotional strength during this lockdown. I am British of Indian origin and I am proud of both my heritage. However, the fact that I have chosen two Bollywood songs in a row is quite a worrying sign.
Roadside Romeo was the first attempt by Disney to penetrate the Indian animated market. This is a movie I can watch over and over again but the timing was completely off which caused it to tank heavily at the Box office. It was stuck in between a patriotic movie with Heroes and an extremely successful comedy franchise with Golmaal Returns. People were just not ready for a movie with songs of an international flavour.
So right is primarily in the scale of F#m and the chords can be found here. I tried it in other scales which are easier to play but it just does not sound the same. Below are the chords in the F#m scale Roadside Romeo uses C# and C#7 which is interesting.
This song is easier to play in Em though the problem with that for beginners will be the B7 chord you can solve the problem of playing the more hard position of playing it in the 1st fret by playing it in the 2nd or 4th fret all the positions are below.
I hope you enjoy the song and playing it but most importantly I hope it gives you better memories than it did for me.
