Kapil Srivastava launches 'Tere Mere Honton Pe' song on guitar as part of Amazing India's Travel Guitar series
From Kashmir to Kanyakumari, India's top guitarist Kapil Srivastava is leaving no stone unturned to showcase India's unity in diversity with the help of his guitar skills.

Under the Amazing India – world record attempt project, he has pledged to compose and record more than 300 compositions and shoot videos at over 300 different locations in India. He has already started shooting at various locations for the project.

On asking guitar player Kapil about his reason for creating such a project, he replied, "My objective is to bridge the beauty and culture of India using this project to today's youth and as well as global tourists. Just like each song that I compose and record, each location is also special to me and my creative team is also selective about suggesting me to create a song as per the spot."

He recently shot the song 'Tere Mere Honton Pe' at Espresso Bar in Dharamshala, Himachal pradesh.

"Blessed with beautiful lush green valley, amazing waterfalls tumbling down with its drizzling sound, I was savoring my cup of tea and enjoying 360 degree view from Espresso Bar, Kandi Village, Khaniyara Road, Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh," says Kapil Srivastava.

Kapil and his crew travelled from Delhi to Dharamshala to video shoot the song under Amazing India Project of 300 destinations. The songwas improvised, re-arranged and re-recorded in his own guitaristic instrumental style (in G-major) especially for this moment.

"The reason I choose this song to shoot at Espresso Bar is because Tere Mere Hothon Pe always gives me two feelings ie (a) Nostalgic and (b) Nature'sblessings on us (hills, waterfalls, solitude) and Espresso Bar justifies both in the best manner," says Kapil Srivastava.

Kapil improvised, played and arranged all the original song's instruments' parts as fillers, counter fillers, strings on the guitar itself using all three octaves. The most amazing part of this song is the start of the melody o.e. the alaap part played in flute. Kapil has beautifully transformed that part in guitar which is a mark of excellence and something never heard so far.

This is one of the best academic melodies for all guitar levels, taken from 80's era and that is why you will see the audio cassette introduction referring to the golden times.

Kapil is also conducting Bollywood music guitar concert workshop for professional and intermediate guitarists to make them well-versed in giving concerts / live performances for 1 to 3 hours from Bollywood repertoire and build their careers through the same.
