Lorde – Everybody Wants to Rule the World (Tab)

Everybody Wants to Rule the World (Tab)

This is a follow on from the Hanging Tree tab in a few ways. As well as the Hunger Games connection, I’ve tried to keep the arrangement as minimal and easy to play as possible.

The arrangement draws heavily on Lorde’s sparse, minor key version. But it also includes elements of the Tears for Fears original since I couldn’t get that version out of my head.

I use thumb and two finger picking for my version but it’s arranged so you can play it all just using your thumb.
