The Darkness – I Believe In A Thing Called Love


The most difficult riff in this series, but well worth it if you ask me. It’s mainly power chords but they do jump around the neck and it’s tricky switching to the picking for the last two notes. You could make it a little easier by just using the C and G strings for the chords.

    OK wow. This is incredible. I will never be able to play this, but you did a hell of a job. Congrats.

    wow! I can’t believe I actually found this…way beyond my abilities but worth attempting, as somebody just requested that I cover this.

    Wish I would have found this before I recorded it. This is easier to play than what I was doing. I tuned it to open c and.. well end result doesn’t sound as good as this. Great tab.

    John: Excellent version. There are definite advantages to retuning now and again.

    sorry that came out all badly looked perfect when i typed it up :(

    the 10 (2nd line) is suppossed to be at the start and the 8s after the 4th 10 on the 3rd line.

  13. Woodshed August 24th, 2010 4:57 pm

    mnmn: Thanks for the suggestion. I got what you meant!

    What about tabbing out the whole song?
    Would be sweet to play a chord-based version.

    For the chorus background try this on the C string

    Open, 2, 4 ,5, 4, Open, 2, 4, 5, 7, 9, 7

    Works a treat

    Hahahha hell yeah, I remember when the music video for this song came out. I don’t know how I never saw this looking through your tabs!
