Never Tear Us Apart

Animated Never Tear Us Apart tab by INXS on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This is a great song for new(ish) beginners. The pace is friendly, and all the chords in the song are in the Key of C major:

C major, D minor, A minor, G major and F major

That's not the order of the chords, just some of the best examples of them in the song. Sometimes just partial chords are strummed, but these are the essential shapes to know. See the theory section on Keys if you would like to know more about that side of things.

You need a fairly clean sound on electric, but it also sounds nice on acoustic guitar if you want to try that.

We've cut out the intro (no guitar during that), and adapted the sax solo for guitar - which sounds great. As far as solos go, it's quite short and sweet - well worth a bash if you want to get some nice lead technique down. Check it out in this ActionTab. Also, the Outro lead is here.
