The Libertines – Don’t Look Back into the Sun (Chords)

The Libertines – Don’t Look Back… (Chords)

I did not have high expectations when I heard The Libertines were getting back together. But after a storming set at Glastonbury and Gunga Din (quick tab of the riff here) I’m officially very excited.

Suggested Strumming

You can use this as the main strum for the intro, solos and verses:

d – d u – u d –

Play that once for each except on the last D in each section play this:

– u d – d – d –

Strum (MP3)

In the chorus: Do this twice for each chord (except just one down strum on the last D):

d – d u d u d u

Twiddly Bits

Here’s a uke version of the little guitar solo that crops up a few times in the song:
