Duran Duran - Too Bad You're So Beautiful (2011)

Tabbed by: trevgreg

Tuning: Standard


Alright, so this is my first attempt at tabbing a song off the "All You Need is Now" 
album. The song is pretty straightforward playing by
guitarist Dom Brown, so it's nothing too difficult to hang onto after a few listens. 
Strum each chord as many times needed during
the song as well. Hope you enjoy!


Intro and Verses: The verses on the song just have mainly two parts here. The second 
riff comes into play in both verses when Simon goes
into the "But it's not your..." line in each one. There may be a harmonics part during 
the initial parts of both verse too
in the background, though I have yet to tab it.

G|--7-----4-----------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--7-----4-----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--5-----2-----------------------------------------------------------------|

"But it's not your..."

B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--5-----7-----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--5-----7-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--3-----5-----------------------------------------------------------------|


Pre-Chorus & Post-Chorus: This is the keyboard riff you hear there. But Dom appears to 
play along with this live too. Repeat the "B-B-A-B"
part as needed.

    B     B-B-A-B
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--4-----4-4-2-4-----------------------------------------------------------|
D|--4-----4-4-2-4-----------------------------------------------------------|
A|--2-----2-2-0-2-----------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|


Chorus:

    G(10th)   E(7th)   B(14th)   F#(9th)
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--12--------9--------16--------11-----------------------------------------|
D|--12--------9--------16--------11-----------------------------------------|
A|--10--------7--------14--------9------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|


Middle Eight: You can strum along to the chords, but Dom appears to hit these each only 
once live for the most part.

    Bm    A     E
e|--2-----0-----0-----------------------------------------------------------|
B|--3-----2-----0-----------------------------------------------------------|
G|--4-----2-----1-----------------------------------------------------------|
D|--4-----2-----2-----------------------------------------------------------|
A|--2-----0-----2-----------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------0-----------------------------------------------------------|


Outro: Once Simon hits the high note at the end of the final chorus, just start playing 
the chorus chords in a different order for
the rest of the song. You won't actually have to stop and start the chords over as shown 
below, but it will make sense once you go into
the end of the song.

    B(14th)   F#(9th)  G(10th)   E(7th)
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--16--------11--------12--------9-----------------------------------------|
D|--16--------11--------12--------9-----------------------------------------|
A|--14--------9---------10--------7-----------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Here are the lyrics to help you know where to play the chords during the song as well.

Verse 1:
Here I go again
I must have flowers in my brain
The same mistake I've made before
But I'm a hostage
To that face of yours

Pre-Chorus 1:
Lay me on your bed
I watch you smoke my cigarette
I wish you knew what's in my head
I could be more than just a friend

Chorus 1:
Too bad you're so beautiful and so complicated
I may be a deluded fool but still fascinated
Too bad you're so beautiful when I'm king of nothing
This can only go one way...

Verse 2:
Ice queen on top of a mountain
Give me the freeze, minus 20 and counting
My lunar dreams how do I stop them?
But it's not your problem
When you're above it all

Pre-Chorus 2:
Lay me on your bed
I want to stroke your sleepy head
I wish that I was you instead
Of being just your weekday friend

Chorus 2:
Too bad you're so beautiful and so complicated
I may be a deluded fool but still fascinated
Too bad you're so beautiful when I'm king of nothing
This can only go one way

Middle Eight:
King of nowhere speaks another line
In the low light I'm here to entertain
When it starts to rain I'm a lucky man

Chorus 3:
Too bad you're so beautiful and so complicated
I may be a deluded fool but still fascinated
too bad you're so beautiful when I'm king of nothing
but this can only go one way

Outro:
Ah ah
Too bad you're so, it's too bad you're so oh oh oh oh
Beautiful hmm hmm, beautiful, it's too bad, just too bad, it's too bad
Beautiful, it's too bad, just too bad, it's too bad.
