Pavadai Thavaniyil, by Vinod

Lyrics & Chords

Hi Friends,

I attempted a great song sung by the legend TMS…I am actually singing this song after a very long time…yes a song which is so close to so many hearts!!

I need to confess few things here….first, I searched for a K track but in vain…I managed to get one in youtube…which was muffled and only 1/3rd of the song was available….that too they have taken the original score of bgm and backed it up with beats in tabla and chords…. unfortunately they did not maintain the uniform speed….I managed to cut and paste the track to get the song to some extent….since I am not a techie…my cut and paste was also so amateurish that it added complications to already troubled timings in beats….could record only pallavi and 2 charanams (actual song has 3 charanams normally seen in movie clips)
One thing I learnt long ago and more so with this song for sure …the more you grow in singing the more you get to learn how great the legends are….this song, actually a simple one while listening, with not much of complications….but I realized the way TMS has rendered it with so much ease….beautiful expressions and absolutely apt for the situations and the actor who portrays it…is something phenomenal which is almost something that cannot be replicated ….

However , here is my very very humble attempt on this legendary song by the legend…hat off to him (TMS) and I prostrate before him for what he is !!

Another thing which I want to share is, I tried my hand on Audacity…….It is single stretch recording….normally I do 3 to 4 attempts…this time it went upto 8 and I chose which is “sahikable” or somewhat bearable…of course could have been better If I had done some cut and paste or punching etc etc…which as of now is latin and greek for me as far as its execution is concerned… nevertheless tried to play around with bit on amplification….echo and compressor….could not figure out the right metrics but somehow hit upon some measures to make it sound little better……I will appreciate If someone can give some broad guidelines w.r.t. what is the right measure i should keep for compression, attack, ratio etc… which I learnt browsing that they are important for the right kind of mixing…as suggested by my friend , I have not used “mix and render” ….instead directly exported to the wav and mp3 format…Some where i started to get a feel that I am getting to learn something…will definitely improve in the days ahead with more of my experimentation and for sure with your guidance If i get….

Even now I suggest you may use headphone for clarity…will try and do better in future….thank you…:)

Vinod Ji,

Clicked the favorites just after the pallavi.

Awesome awesome rendition this.

The mixing sounds very nice – there is a nice echo around the vocals :-)

Chandra

Very good write up Vinod enjoyed reading it before hitting the play button. I understand why you took so much pain to to render this complicated but lovely melody. I heard the final breath you took after finishing this heavy duty song….Lol. I agree with you the more we expose our selves to music the more we begin to appreciate at the artistry of the Guru’s. Hats off to you Vinod this was not an easy project. You are a very good singer.

Vinod Great creation by you and liked your detailed write up about this creation. Normally it is so difficult to sing the songs of TMS as the style is so difficult to catch. But you have done justice to this beautifull melody. You are correct that if we are so patient we will get better result. Keep on singing such beautifull melodies from the oldies. When we sing the old golden songs we will feel that we have done a great thing and will get much pleasure.So much happy that a young man of your age selecting these good old songs.
When free please listen the song Kayampoo kannil vidarum sung by me here.
Be always with a music mind to be a good person

Vinodji,

Listening to you after few months, glad to see you active back again. “Sahikable” illa romba “azhaga” paadi irukeenga :) To be honest i would love to hear an honest single stretch recordings of raw vocals than the polished one’s, as it gives a nice flavor and that’s the reason i like to listen most of your uploads, that too the initial one’s, you might have noticed my comments. So not to worry much about mixing and recording to the perfection, as people like me still would love to listen your songs and you can post it without hesitation :) Keep them flowing…Enjoyed my listen.

Theagaraj bro….mikka nandri……correct!! the finish in each line is the best part in this song….and as we know, to get that with ease after all the subtle twist in rest of the line is the challenge….that too to squeeze it well within relatively fast beat……rasithatharkku rombo rombo nandri…:)

Hahaha Saroj, true had some fun as rightly pointed out….but it is time consuming and running out of patience….perhaps it will be like that till I get the full hang of it I guess……thanks for listening , reading and for compliments….:)

Chandrasekaranji….thanks a lot for those lavish compliments, especially when it comes from someone who has known and listen to this song for several years…….true, it is difficult to sing ,any of TMS songs….as I see it….they belong to the older generation with some real solid voice and have done asura sadhakas which is very difficult for us to even imagine…………and you are absolutely right in mentioning about the satisfaction we get while singing old songs….there are several good new songs , however old songs (both lyrics and composition) had the charm of penetrating deep into peoples heart and staying there forever….coz. melody , lyrics and voice was given the importance……which is almost absent or becomes absent with new songs due to rich or rather over orchestration!! I guess so……:)

Thank you so much Jenefa……I have always noticed your warm regards and appreciation for the single stretch efforts of mine in the past…….All along I was thinking that I need to learn more w.r.t. recording and presentation…but Your statement now is so encouraging for me that people like you also enjoy the raw versions too….thanks a million for those great words of motivation….will continue doing justice to both to the extent possible….thank you so much once again….:)

Vinod Ji,

Came back for another listen.

I second Jenefa. It doesn’t matter whether your songs are mixed or not. It will sound fabulous. Your fantastic voice and fabulous rendition triumphs every other technical aspect:-)

I would love to listen to your vocals irrespective of the way it is presented. //Thanks Jenefa Sis for this wonderful thought//

Chandra

Superb mix and rendition thalaivarey :-)! I am quite glad that you are now onto software mixing too. It does do its magic, although as folks have pointed above, you don’t necessarily need it for your magic :-)!!

If you by chance come across the K-Track for TMS sir’s “Amaithiyaana Nathinile Oodum” please do share with me. I consider it one of the most soulful songs of TMS sir. I am sure you love that MSV masterpiece too!

Thanks and spectacular singing indeed….!

Thanks bro…. it is a great song indeed. Meragana has this song, but only the sad version…. I am not quite familiar with that version.

Barring your ignorance in the technical aspects of the track and mixing……I erased all the pointers from my mind before starting to type the comments. Concentrated only on your singing….while listening to this extremely difficult song with intricate sangathis allover. You captured most of them as usual with ease. Just noted a few off’s in place, which could be due to single stretch recording and so even this pointer could be erased. LOL. Enjoyed your expressions, though…. Thanks for sharing…

@ Anbu….I know you have decided to erase all the pointers knowing pretty well that it is pointless to point them out to a person like me who will never get the point or get to the point….hahahaha….still very happy with the feedback you provided….will do this song again once I get a good K track ( full version) …thanks a lot for complimenting my effort in attempting this great song….:)
