h = hammer on

p = pull off

b = bend

r = release bend

Intro riff :

------------

E-------------------------

B------2h3--2h3--2h3-5----

G--2h4-----------------2--

D-------------------------

A-------------------------

E-----------------

What I have for the chords is :

A G D A G D

She said I know what it's like to be dead I know what it ...

Basically it's these three chords for nearly the whole song, apart from :

Em A7 D A7 D

When I was a boy e'thing was right e'thing was right

And that's it.

As for the instruments : one guitar plays the chords, with a cleanish sound

The second electric plays lead parts which sometimes echo the tune, but this

guitar also plays the riff that comes after ' making me feel like I've never

been born' :

E---------------------------------

B------------------------------

G---4b6r4-2--4--0-----0---2---------

D-------------------2---2--------

A-------------------------------

E-------------------------------

So , with these two guitars you have bass - fairly simple stuff here, a lot of

root notes except for the 'when I was a boy' bit, where the bass plays on the

1st 3rd and 5th of the chords.

Add drums, and harmony vocals (nearly all singing in 3rds) and you've got it.

I just recorded a cover of this on 8-track, and stuck pretty much to the

original sound. I double tracked that riff to give it more edge, and added a few

more vocals, but it sounded very good.

As a point of interest, check out the cymbals on the original.

On the bit with the guitar riff (between verses) there seem to be a lot of loud

cymbals - a lot louder than the bulk of the song.

Maybe they overdubbed extra cymbals here ?

It certainly gives it a powerful sound, and on the fade out too there's a lot

of cymbals.

Great song !
