Guns N Roses - Coma Acoustic chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
okay. so i thought, this being a guns song, i'd tune my guitar flat a half
step. i think it's actually a whole step. actually it's probably in drop c,
or something ridiculous. you can probably tell i don't play metal a lot. but
oh well. these are all power chords and fifths anyway. you can always
transpose. but it's a crazy song, so you're going to play an ass load of
barred chords anyway. deal.

Section 1:
(these aren't official, it's just the way i like to break the song up)

Riff

Ab
See you've caught me in a coma
Abm                        F#                     F#m
And I don't think I want to ever come back to this world again
E
Kinda like it in a coma
Em                        G        D                F#      C#
'Cause no one's ever gonna make me come back to this world again

C#m
Now I feel as if I'm floating away
        B
I can't feel the pressure and I like it this way
       Bm
But my body's calling, my body's calling
D          A                C#      Ab
Want me to come back to this world again

Abm
Suspended deep in a sea of black
          F#
I got the light at the end, I got the bones on the mast
      F#m
Well, I've gone sailing, I've gone sailing
A#               E#
I could leave so easily
A#                     C#
My friends are calling back to me
       G#                           Eb
I said yeah, they're leaving it all up to me when
F#m               E
All I needed was clarity
(alternate between B and Bb)
And someone to tell me what the fuck is going on

Riff

Ab

B / C#7 / F# / A (or F#m) / 

E
Slippin' farther and farther away
       B                                (alternate between Bb and A)
It's a miracle how long we can stay in a world our minds created
In a world that's full of shit

Riff

C#          G#
Please understand me
    Bb
I'm climbin' through the wreckage of all my twisted dreams
         F
And this cheap investigation just can't stifle all my screams
        F#             C#
And I'm waiting at the crossroads
            D#
Waiting for you, waiting for you
          Ab
Where are you?




Section 2

Ab

No one's gonna bother me anymore
No one's gonna mess with my head no more
I can't understand what all the fightin's for
But it's so nice here down off the shore
I wish you could see this, cause there's nothing to see
It's peaceful here and it's fine with me
Not like the world where I used to live
I never really wanted to live

Riff

Guitar solo:

F#

G# / G#m / F# / F#m / E / Em / 

B / F# / C# / G# /

B / Bm / F# //

E / B / (alternate between Bb and A)

Riff

G#                              G#m
Live your life like it's a coma, won't you tell me why we'd want to?
F#                           F#m
With all the reasons you give it's kinda hard to believe




Section 3

    E                                   B
But who am I to tell you that I've seen any reason why you should stay
(there's a crazy break here)
Maybe we'd be better off without you anyway

Crazy break (goes something like):

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

        Bb                     C#
I got a one way ticket on your last chance ride
      G#                    D#
Got a one way ticket to your suicide
      C#                        (alternate between B and Bb)
Got a one way ticket and there's no way out alive

             D#                           F#
And all this crass communication that has left you in the cold
      C#                            G#
Isn't much for consolation when you feel so weak and old
       B                                       F#
But if home is where the heart is then there's stories to be told
(alternate between E and D#)
No, you don't need a doctor, no one else can heal your soul

         Abm                          B
Got your mind in submission, got your life on the line
      F#                               C#
But nobody pulled the trigger they just stepped aside
           E                          B          (alternate between A and Ab)
They'll be down by the water while you watch 'em wavin' goodbye

           C#
They'll be callin' in the morning
                          E
They'll be hanging on the phone
           B
They'll be waitin' for an answer
        F#
But you know nobody's home
             A                        E      (alternate between D and C#)
And when the bells stop ringing it was nobody's fault but your own

           F#m
There were always ample warning
           A
There were always subtle signs
        E                                  B
And you would have seen them coming but we gave you too much time
             D
And when you said that no one's listening
           A
Why'd your best friend drop a dime
  (alternate between G and F#)
Sometimes we get so tired of waiting for a way to spend our time

            B
And it's so easy to be social
        D
It's so easy to be cool
          A                           E
Yeah, its easy to get hungry when you ain't got shit to lose
      G                               D
And I wish that I could help you with what you hope to find
      (alternate between C and B)
But I'm still out here waiting watching reruns of my life
When you reach the point of breaking
Know it's gonna take some time to heal those broken memories
                                       Em
That another man would need just to survive

(that last chord - the Em - might not be a minor. the note axl settles on is
the major third, which is G#, but unless you're planning to replicate his
singing exactly you might as well play the minor. it sounds better. or just a
power chord, as you're presumerably been playing for the whole song.)
