Ayumi Hamasaki – 1 Love tab

Here is the tab for "1 LOVE", which I think is one of the best songs on the "Secret" album.

Here's the intro riff, which we'll call Riff 1:E|---------------------|B|---------------------|G|---------------------|D|---------------------|A|---------------------|E|-1--1--4-5-6-6-7-8-2-|At the beginning, just play this once every two bars, but after the little drum roll, play it over and over, consecutively, until Ayu starts singing. Then, just palm-mute this:
E|-----B|-----G|-----D|-3-3- At the beginning of each bar.A|-3-3-E|-1-1-
Then, when you get to the bridge (Tsurarete nemuku naru...), play:
E|------------------------------------|B|------------------------------------|G|-6--6--6--6--6--6--6--3--3--3--3--5-|D|-6--6--6--6--6--6--6--3--3--3--3--5-|A|-4--4--4--4--4--4--4--1--1--1--1--3-|E|------------------------------------|And after Ayu sings: "Just 1 LOVE", play this:
E|-----------------------|B|-----------------------|G|-----------------------|D|-----------------------|A|-4--6--1--3----1-2-3---|E|-------------1-------2-|
Okay, and here's the chorus. It's VERY important that you play this fluently and and not harshly because otherwise it will sound very wrong. 8 strokes per bar, all down strokes.
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|B|-----------------------------------------------------------------|G|-----------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-|D|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-|A|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|E|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-------------------------------------------------|"Itsu datte nazeka retsu kara hamidashichau no ga atashi no shoubun"
E|---------------------------------------------------|B|---------------------------------------------------|G|-----------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-----------------5-|D|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|A|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-3-|E|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-----------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3---|"Sasu nara togatta kotoba de gojiyuu ni osuki ni douzo mae ni nante"
Then, as Ayu sings: "na-ra-at-te", you palm-mute:E|----------|B|----------|G|----------|D|----------|A|----------|E|-6-4-6-7--|
Then play Riff 1 again, and continue through verse; bridge and chorus as normal. After chorus, instead of going back to Riff 1, play this:
E|---------------------|B|---------------------|G|---------------------|D|---------------------|A|---------------------|E|-1--4--6-7-8--11-----|
When the lead guitar begins playing the solo, you play Riff 1, but three steps up, so:
E|-----------------------|B|-----------------------|G|-----------------------|D|-----------------------|A|-----------------------|E|-4--4--7-8-9-9-10-11-5-|
Then back into the bridge and chorus. (The last chorus goes round twice). After the last play Riff 1 over and over, and end on the octave F.
E|----B|----G|-10-D|-10-A|-8--E|----
And there you have it... 1 LOVE. ^_^ Happy playing xx
