Queensryche – The Voice chords

One of the best songs from Queensryche's new album, "American Soldier".
The lyrics are inspired by the near-death experience of Geoff Tate's father,
Perry Tate, a US Army veteran who was wounded in combat.

This song uses a lot of keyboards, but it can also be played quite nicely
with these chords.

Thanks to Powerslave88 and Rich P. from www.anybodylistening.net for
their immense help - this tab is actually the result of their work.

Two guitars in this song - one of them plays the riffs during the intro and 
interlude, while during the verses and chorus, they both play rhythm parts.


A simple riff on the E string...

e|---2b-(pause)-2-3-5-6-5-3----| (repeat from the beginning about 5-6 times)B|-----------------------------|G|-----------------------------|D|-----------------------------|A|-----------------------------|E|-----------------------------|
The second guitar plays D5 / Bb5 under this. Verse:
D A Am I still alive?
Bm I think I've got it right...
A I'm made of light..
D A Before I leave and go away,
C There's some things I must say,
Bm Before - before I'm gone...
On "gone", turn on distortion and play A5 / C5 twice. This same progression repeats for the next verse. Pre-chorus:
A5 C5 A5 C5 There's so many possibilities -
A5 C5 A5 G5 And I'm just starting to see...
Now go directly to the Chorus:
G5 A5 Bb5 A5 G5 It's like the poets always said
A5 Bb5 A5 G5 When life is hanging from a thread
A5 Bb5 C5 D5 You can hear that voice in your head....
And now return to the D5 / Bb5 sequence from the intro. The interlude is just a three-note riff on the E string:
For the rest of the song, use the pre-chorus and chorus chords. The coda is D5 / Bb5. End on D. Don't be afraid, G.
