Duran Duran - Astronaut (2004)

 

Tabbed by: trevgreg

Tuning: Standard

 

 

Here are the chords to the band's title track from their 2004 album. Much of this song

acoustic based, with Simon LeBon playing these chords live and Andy Taylor playing along

some of them during the verses and for the entire chorus. Andy also does some extra work

with the electric guitar in parts of the

song. I've tried to point out what obvious parts he has that I can recognize.

 

 

For the verses, this is the main riff...

Em B Asus2/Am

e|--0-0-0-0----0-2-2----0-0-0-----------------|

B|--0-0-0-0----0-2-2----0-0-1-----------------|

G|--0-0-0-0----4-4-4----2-2-2-----------------|

D|--2-2-2-2----4-4-4----2-2-2-----------------|

A|--2-2-2-2----0-2-2--------------------------|

E|--0-0-0-0-----------------------------------|

 

For the chorus, it's pretty simple...

A5 D5 E5

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

G|-------------9-9-9----7-7-7------------------------------------------------|

D|--7-7-7-7----9-9-9----7-7-7------------------------------------------------|

A|--7-7-7-7----7-7-7----5-5-5------------------------------------------------|

E|--5-5-5-5------------------------------------------------------------------|

 

 

This is Andy's part just before the second verse. And this also comes in for the last

of the second verse as well.

Em B(2) B Am

e|------------------------0-0-------------------------------------------------|

B|--8--8-8-8--------------1-1-------------------------------------------------|

G|--9--9-9-9--8----4-4----2-2-------------------------------------------------|

D|--9--9-9-9--9----4-4----2-2-------------------------------------------------|

A|--7--7-7-7--9----2-2--------------------------------------------------------|

E|------------7---------------------------------------------------------------|

 

Em B(2) B B

e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

B|--8--8-8-8------------------------------------------------------------------|

G|--9--9-9-9--8----4-4----4-4-------------------------------------------------|

D|--9--9-9-9--9----4-4----2-2-------------------------------------------------|

A|--7--7-7-7--9----2-2----2-2-------------------------------------------------|

E|------------7---------------------------------------------------------------|

 

Be sure to catch where the down and up strokes come in... during the main riff especially.

 

 

Verse One:

Em B Asus2 Am

Makes my hair stand up on end

Something alien happening

Synchronized but don't comprehend

Coz where I stop that's where you begin

 

Em B Asus2 Am

I know the moment I commit

A pleasure rising when I take the hit

And I'm addicted to state you're in

Cos you're getting me out of it

 

Chorus:

A5 E5 D5

Wasted

There is nothing gonna ace this

And we're gonna go to space kid

Cos I'm leaving with an astronaut

 

(Andy Chords Before And During The Second Verse)

Em B(2) B Am

Em B(2) B B

 

Verse Two:

Em B Asus2 Am

Groovin-out to x-ray spex

Something tells me you're the alien sex

I can't imagine now; what comes next

When this astronaut connects?

 

Em B Asus2 Am

Coming-on when I touch your skin

A kind of strange light you emit

I feel your gravity pull me in

Now you're getting me out of it

 

Chorus:

A5 E5 D5

Wasted

There is nothing gonna ace this

And we're gonna go to space kid

Cos I'm leaving with an astronaut

(Repeat Again)

 

Bridge:

(No Chords Played Here)

Bare-feet for quantam leap

Because space is hot and deep

And we follow giant footprints as we fall... in

falling like the twins through Saturn's holy rings

And if they can't hold us

Where it's gonna end up - anybody knows

 

Interlude:

A5 E5 D5

 

An A-stronaut

An A-stronaut

 

Guitar Solo:

Here's my interpretation of the guitar solo from what I can hear.

 

e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

B|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

G|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

A|--1/5--3------3(h)-------4--3-----------1/5--3------3(h)-------4--3---------|

E|------------5----------2---------2--2------------5-----------2---------2(h)-|

 

 

Chorus:

A5 E5 D5

Wasted

There is nothing gonna ace this

And we're gonna go to space kid

Cos I'm leaving with an astronaut

(Repeat Again)

 

Finale:

A5 E5 D5

Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop

An A-stronaut

Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop

An A-stronaut

Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop

An A-stronaut

Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop

An A-stronaut
