Cranberries – Zombie tab ver. 2

From: Dean Povey 

Thought this may be of use to someone, I don't know how accurate it is but
it sounds ok to me.

The chords I use are:

	Em     02200x
	Cadd9  03200x
	G6     3200xx
	D/F#   2000xx  <- This probably should be 20023x or something but I'm lazy

Occasionally in the heavier parts I substitute Cadd9 for C/G (330210) for a 
bit of variety.

The intro is something like:

The timing here is probably a bit rough but you get the general idea. Then you kick your overdrive in and play the top 4 bass strings on each chord. I think there is 2 sets of this played ending with a long Em and then the verse. I tend to simulate the bass by playing softly on the strings and then the guitar bits much louder, if you listen to the CD this seems to be close to what they are doing

The verse varies a bit but is more or less based on the above. I haven't worked out the solo yet but seems to use two guitars one playing a riff based on the lead riff above (well at least it starts like that) e---7h8--5h7-7-7-7- Repeat Or something like that and then the other guitar comes over the top. Well thats about it, I did work out the little bass riff but I forget how it goes though it is based around E open, E third, A 5th, A 3rd and A open. Here are the lyrics (not mine) From: (Brandinius) Subject: CRD/LYR: Zombie, the cranberries Zombie, The Cranberries - - Another head hangs lowly Child is slowly taken And the violence caused such silence Who are we mistaken but you see, it's not me it's not my family in your head, in your head they are fighting - - - - Chorus - - - - With their tanks, and their bombs, and their bombs, and their guns In your head, in your head they are cryin' In your head, In your head Zombie, etc. What's in your head in your head, in your head Zombie, etc. Another mother's breakin' heart is taking over when the violence causes silence we must be mistaken it's the same old theme since 1916 in your head, in your head they're still fightin' Chorus Any additions/corrections are welcome. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Dean Povey ( "Cows will continue to be lower life forms Department of Psychology while they insist on eating grass instead University of Queensland of smoking it." - Anon Brisbane, Australia Phone: +61 7 365 6713 Fax: +61 7 365 4466 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ From: (Karl 'RiscMan' Davis) "Zombie", The Cranberries. --------------------- From their 2nd album 'No need to argue' Hi! Haven't been on lately, so I don't know if this has been done before, but here it is anyway The intro is repeated once during the song, in the 'break'. Needs to be played as 'clear' as possible, so turn them pedals off! :) ------------------------------------------------------------------- Intro:

------------------------------------------------------------------- I worked this out last night, so if there are any mistakes, they're mine. I'll have another go and get the definative tab later. From Dieter Breitschwerdt "Zombie", The Cranberries Here I post some minor corrections to the main riff of this song. Since this little gem plays a major role in the song, it may be worth while considering. Here is the version as I figured it out from the CD last night. Main riff (Intro and Break)
