Duran Duran - Still Breathing (2004)

Here are the guitar parts to the closing track off the band's Astronaut album. The song
a ton of keyboards and effects, but Andy Taylor's guitar in the song is pretty basic,
only based around a few riffs and an acoustic part during the chorus. Either way, it's
pretty effective, and the song is probably the band's best closer on an album since The Chauffeur
in 1982. Like The Chauffeur, this song is also very moody lyrically and musically.

Main Riff:
This is played during the verses and the chorus.

e|--------------------0-----------------------------------------------------|
B|---10---8---6---8-------6---5---3-----------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Below is practically the same riff, except for the last few notes. This is only played just
before the two verses once, then the guitar part goes back to the riff above.

e|--------------------0------------------------------------------------------|
B|---10---8---6---8-------6p5---2---3----------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Chorus
The main riff repeats during the chorus. But I can also make out an acoustic guitar playing
a Dm-C chord arrangement throughout.

Dm:   x57765
C:    x35553

Bridge Riff
This is played after the second and third choruses in the song.

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--2---3---5---6-----2---3---5---6-----2---3---5---6-----8---6---5---6----|
G|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

You can hear traces of the main riff on and off during the last minute and a half the song
also. Much of the ending is filled with synths all over, but the guitar coming in and out is
a nice effect to go along with that.

*Main riff*
Home, it's not brick or stone
Or comfort in the firelight
Not in that sense anyway

Dm                      C
I'm walking out of this town
Dm                      C
I'm never going back there, I'm never going back there
Dm                      C
I'd burn the place to the ground
Dm                      C
I'm never going back there, I'm never going back there again

Dm                      C
I'm walking out of this town
Dm                      C
I'm never going back there, I'm never going back there
Dm                      C
I'd burn the place to the ground
Dm                      C
I'm never going back there, I'm never going back there again

Dm                      C
I'm walking out of this town
Dm                      C
I'm never going back there, I'm never going back there
Dm                      C
I'd burn the place to the ground
Dm                      C
I'm never going back there, I'm never going back there again
Dm                      C
Never going back there, I'm never going back there again
