Richard Ashcroft – Bitter Sweet Symphony tab
This is a tab for one of the live recordings of Bitter Sweet Symphony by Richard for iTunes in London. He played the song on an acoustic guitar, and it doesn't particularly the original recording, but more the overall harmony. It's a nice version of the song and easy to play, just repeating 4 chords: (Standard Tuning) (Also the song is in the key of E) E - 022100 Esus4 - 022200 Dsus2- xx0230 Asus2 - x02200 Intro: |E||Esus4 ||Dsus2||Asus2 | x4 Well it's a |E| bitter |Esus4| sweet |Dsus2| sym|Asus2|phony my |E| life |Esus4 ||Dsus2||Asus2 | Trying to |E| make ends |Esus4| meet, you're a |Dsus2| slave to |Asus2| money then you die |Esus4 ||Dsus2||Asus2 | I'll take you |E| down the |Esus4| only |Dsus2| road I've |Asus2| ever |E| been down |Esus4 ||Dsus2||Asus2 | You know the |E| one that |Esus4| takes you to the |Dsus2| places where |Asus2| all the |E| meet, yeah |Esus4 ||Dsus2||Asus2 | The next bit sounds nice if you palm mute it and then slowly mute it less and less to a 'build up' No |E| change, I can't |Esus4| change, I can't |Dsus2| change, I can't |Asus2| change, but I'm |E| here in my |Esus4| mold , I am |Dsus2| here in my |Asus2| mold And I'm a |E| million different |Esus4| people from |Dsus2| one day to the |Asus2| next I can't |E| change my |Esus4| mold, no, |Dsus2| no, no, no, |Asus2| no Have you ever |E| been down |Esus4 ||Dsus2||Asus2 | As you can see this pattern just repeats through the song. The strumming is quite easy workout and just needs some upstrokes on the B and E strings now and then (listen to the for when). Enjoy! by Sam Matthews
