Selling the Drama (Main)

Animated Selling the Drama (Main) tab by Live on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

Here we look at the main guitar for Selling the Drama. This song is in Eb tuning, so tune each string down by 1 note to:

Low Eb:Ab:Db:Gb:Bb:Eb

The song has some nice acoustic chord changes. It sounds nice on a 12-string, which is used in the song. But here we keep it on a standard 6 string for convenience.

The main song parts are quite straightforward. Once you know the 3 main song progressions you'll be able to play the whole song through easily:

Intro / Verse - The song starts on the main guitar hook. A hook is a catchy riff that pulls you into the song. For most people, it is their favourite part. The hook here is quite simple, simply start with a half bend before strumming through:

G major - D major / D sus4 (repeat)

Then play E minor - Bm7 - C add9

And that's all you need do for all the verses. The chorus is also pretty simple stuff:

Chorus - This sequence of chords is just:

C sus2 - D sus2 - Then alternate between E minor - A major - End on C add9

That is all you need to play through the whole song! The only extra part is for the solo, at the end of the second chorus:

Solo Backing - Just continue on from the standard chorus chords with the following progression:

C add9 - D sus2 - E sus2 - D sus2 - C add9 - Then just go to the main Verse riff, slowly strumming each chord once only.
