Mere Naina Saawan Bhaado - by Mustibabu

Lyrics & Chords

One of the heavyweight-numbers from Kishoreda. In fact, a mega-heavyweight, for me to have finally mustered up the courage and determination to take a shot at. One of my many weaknesses is maintaining sustained notes, which features a lot in this song. And natural vibrato, which isn’t there in my case. The very reasons why I had been putting off trying this gem of a song for soooo long. But couldn’t defer it any longer, as I’m sure I’d never overcome these shortcomings, without proper training. So here goes….

Well like you said one of KK’s heavyweight song with mixture of higher & lower notes and sustaining modulation on them…. so keeping all that you singing went very nice and especially the expressions and feel department…. I will agree with you on sustaining modulation…. where it was good on some then it could be improved on others…. nonetheless it was a wonderful singing bhai…. keep sharing like that.

(when time permits plz listen to my Noor Jahan Number :-))

Wish you Gr8 Luck!

Good Treat Mustafa. You brought quite a bit of justice to nuances. It won’t be 100% compared to original of course, but probably thats not so important. You brought good feel, have a great voice and a good vocal range, keep singing and sharing !


Thanks
Harry

Mustafa – While you gave enough disclaimer, I find you were quite successful in sustaining notes. Specially liked voice quality here. Very minor offs at few transitions but discoverable with the lens eye only. Overall, I liked this cover.

Mustafa ….when it comes to singing, we should be our critics and I am glad to see your write up….even I dont have a natural tremlo in my voice……very soulful rendition….you have done justice to this immortal song…its never easy to cover these. I am really really impressed by your awesome breath control. Thoda idhar udhar sur hila hai…par koyi baat nahi….its impossible to render this song perfectly….so hats off for this great attempt !!!

@Harsha: You’ve always been a good critic, one whose feedback I always look forward to. One’s strengths may not be able to eclipse, but surely can outshine one’s weaknesses. And I’m truly glad and satisfied that that’s how you found this rendition, of a difficult song, of mine to be. Thanks for liking it bro!

Mustafa bhai……

One of the toughest songs of Kishore Kumar, which even he was not sure of singing……only after listening to lata’s song, KK tried it……

You did ample justice to the song…….the voice, sustains and expressions were top-class……

Minor rework while transcending to lower notes would greatly enhance this rendition….

Poore 100 pratishat, bhai for the attempt and voice….

Music is my meditation…….Shailender

A very good rendition, Mustafa. After reading to your writeup, I sat listening, after ‘raising my tolerance level’, but ended up raising my expectation level :) Except for a few misses of notes and harkats here and there, the song is very impressively rendered. I am sure you can and will get more better by more practice. Keep uploading more……

@Vidya: Thank you for visiting my space! Glad that you see potential for improvement, which of course, won’t happen unless adequate time and practice is invested. The desire is undying, the passion limitless! But sadly, what’s lacking is the availability of ‘time’….:-( Anyways, hope to see you around always!

@Shaniruh: Thanks for the visit & feedback!

Mustafa Bhai I am glad that you are back and reponding well to feedbacks… I am sorry to point out that ill effects of a long lay off are visible in this rendition….you were so right on spot in eSnips with some outstanding renditions….well no worries….you can get back to shape in no time provided you continue with renditions….good singing of this classic over all…your write up does not portray correct picture….all the deficiencies you have pointed out before hand were not there earlier….all this is due to prolonged rest to vocal chords….so come on man….you did it and you will do it….best wishes
