Most of the songs in the Malayalam language are written with simple chords. They are very easy to play on the guitar.
Although some songs do have complicated chords, you can always replace them with the easier version of the chord. For example, if the chord is an Fmaj7, you can use an F Major chord instead. This will not be a perfect match for the song, but it will sound somewhat similar.
If you feel like the song is in a difficult key for you to play, you can click on the “♭/#” on the toolbar & change the key to something that you are comfortable with. If the song is in F Major, and you are not comfortable playing F Major key, click on the “♭” once, to transpose it to E Major. Now keep the capo on the first fret & play the E Major chords. The song will sound like it is on F Major, but you can use the chords for E Major and play the song comfortably.
