Phil Collins – In the Air Tonight (Tabs)

Phil Collins – In the Air Tonight (Tab)

Phil Collins has one, “I will never forgive you for cheating,” song and one, “please forgive me for cheating,” song per marriage (he has a lot of these songs). This is the former.

I’ve cut the intro way down from the original version. You’re welcome to use any picking pattern and any inversion of the chords here.

The chorus is brilliant. It manages to pull of the trick of being both bleak and catchy.

The verses are angry and even more sparse than the chorus. In a case of do as I say not do as I do, let the verse breath and try not to rush the melody.

Finally, the legendary drum Phil (bar 60). I’ve gone with a descending run based on the D blues scale with the last four notes played chromatically.
