How to Play Guitar Solos as Introduction or Interlude of the Any Song (Steps To Follow) with example of Pyar Ka Pahla Khat by Vipin Aneja and Shushant Sharma

Hey Guys, its after very long time I'm interacting with you all. This time I'm bringing the Lead of the Cover Song Pyar Ka Pehla Khat by Vipin Aneja. Song is originaly sung by Amazing Jagjit Singh. This post is suggested by MR. Shahzad. Thank you for wonderful Suggestion.
Let we take this Lead as the first step for learning purpose to become pro lead guitarist by your own.
Before moving on to lead there are some things to clear in your mind about this lead (Intro).
> This Intro solo is really much advance type.
> This not that typical solo that you hear in recording as it is just improvising the raaga in western way. Like in Indian classical, no determined notes. all are played on the moment. Just Like improvisation in Western.
>This lead consist of lots of techniques say Hammer on, Pull off, Slide, Vibrato, bend, legato, chicken picking and sweep picking. yes only these! nothing else.
> So you need to go through all these techniques then you can make your own solos. Mr. YouTube has bundle of tutorials for this things (Do u really thing that Youtube is Mr. or it's Miss?)
> So go through these thing I'm sure that you will make your own solo, may be you are next 'Slash' born in India.  Just Look inside. Yes!
Now after this Teacher type attack, lets move on to Learn About song. (All these thing is really necessary to figure out your solo by own and make ur own)
1) This song is based on Raaga Pilu. Jagjit Sir Composed it. So solo notes would be obviously notes of Raag Pilu. 
2) But you have to play this raaga the way it's taken in song. Like here, in this song Gandhar Komal is taken but Nishad Komal in descending is taken which is characteristic of Raag Pilu.
3) The easiest way to start is Just play the Melodic lead of song. Notes of song which is meant to sung. Identify the Notes, Identify its treatment of notes, ascending notes, descending notes, etc. Then roam around that notes and find some beautiful tunes. Small and big licks, Slow and Fast licks, ascending, descending and up down. Then combine all these in proper order. There you go You have made ur own solo. Yes you are next John Meyer. 
4) Keep the patience. For first days its will quit difficult. But You will get used to it.
5) Not All songs are based on Raaga. Most of them are purely either on Major scale and Minor Scale. So Remembering Scales has great great great Advantage of Playing Leads. If you are still struggling to play scale then first clear that. Yes you must know all the notes of scale and their positions on fret.
Am I Speaking Like Hitler? Oops. But discipline is the first step toward success. Please go through all these things. May be it will take time but You will be a Pro Guitar Player. 
So Coming Back to Song (Pyar Ka Pehla Khat- You didn't forgot right?)
Song is based on Pilu
The General Scale of song is: Sa Re ga ma Pa Dha Ni Sa' for Ascending and
                                                     Sa' ni Dha Pa ma ga Re Sa
As you can see It's only Ga is Komal other are Shudhha or Natural. And nishad Komal. in descending. Here one thing must be cleared that Raag is not as simple as I illustrated here but keeping this simple to start. Raag is much more complex then I stated here. Yes complex not difficult. 
Ya in western way This is Natural Scale just Intead of Major Third the third note will be Minor third.
 So here Scale will be : D E F G A B C# D (Instead F#, here F) for ascending
                                         D C B A G F E D   ( Here instead C# only C) for descending
As third note is minor, The first Chord will be Dm. other are explained in the post for chords. (Remember Original is half scale down from this cover version for what we talking about. Thats on C#m)
Anyway, so roam around these notes. Find out some fantastic melodies and lick and combine all that. That's it! You are our Prasanna or Amyt Dutta or Ehsaan Noorani. We like whatever you play. We enjoy it if you enjoy whatever you play. :-)
But with Above All you must cover the lead the way it played originally as many as you can. Go For Again YouTube. Play as it is and get Inspired to do something unique.
I Hope This explanation Helps you for making ur own intro and interlude lead. If Helped Then Share it. Make this article reachy for all enthusiastic guitarist. 
Here I've explained the Intro Lead Played by Shushant Sharma. It's not Ditto of that solo. as its so complex to explain here. Just play as its explained here. If you have made complete justice of this solo. Then go your own way. Enjoy.
