Sonne

Animated Sonne tab by Rammstein on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This song uses 'Drop D' Tuning which is a great way of playing powerchords with 1 finger! Drop D tuning is exactly the same as standard tuning except you 'drop' the Low E by 2 notes to D. So we get the following tuning:

Low D - A - D - G - B - E

The tuning arrangement makes it easy to play most of the powerchords with just one finger - as you'll see in the ActionTab.

The riffs and chords for the song are very straightforward and once you know the first quarter of the song you'll know everything you need to play out the rest of it!

It may be simple, but it rocks. Here are all the riffs and powerchord sequences:

D - Ab D Ab G D D - Ab D Ab D
D - Ab D Ab G D D - Ab D Ab G G G (repeat)

D - Ab D Ab G D D - Ab D Ab D (3 times)

Chorus:

B B A A D D C C (repeat)
E E B B G G Gb Gb (repeat)

D - Ab D Ab G D D - Ab D Ab D
D - Ab D Ab G D D - Ab D Ab G G G (just once)

D - Ab D Ab G D D - Ab D Ab D (2 times)

Chorus:

B B A A D D C C (repeat)
E E B B G G Gb Gb (repeat)
B B A A D D C C (repeat)
E E B B G G Gb Gb (repeat)

Chorus:

B B A A D D C C (repeat)
E E B B G G Gb Gb (repeat)
B B A A D D C C (repeat)
E E B B G G Gb Gb (repeat)

We've reduced some of the gaps where no guitar is playing to make the ActionTab flow better, this won't affect your understanding of the song. The difficulty will be getting to the speed of the normal speed version. Work on the riffs, and build up speed over time. You need a tight, punchy rhythm and to use 'dead stops' during the riffs (kill the strings by muting with both hands). Watch the video / core skills lessons on how to do this!
