Chords
Duran Duran - Astronaut (2004)


Tuning: Standard


Here are the chords to the band's title track from their 2004 album. Much of this song 
acoustic based, with Simon LeBon playing these chords live and Andy Taylor playing along 
some of them during the verses and for the entire chorus. Andy also does some extra work
with the electric guitar in parts of the
song. I've tried to point out what obvious parts he has that I can recognize.


For the verses, this is the main riff...
   Em          B        Asus2/Am
e|--0-0-0-0----0-2-2----0-0-0-----------------|
B|--0-0-0-0----0-2-2----0-0-1-----------------|
G|--0-0-0-0----4-4-4----2-2-2-----------------|
D|--2-2-2-2----4-4-4----2-2-2-----------------|
A|--2-2-2-2----0-2-2--------------------------|
E|--0-0-0-0-----------------------------------|

For the chorus, it's pretty simple...
    A5         D5       E5
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------9-9-9----7-7-7------------------------------------------------|
D|--7-7-7-7----9-9-9----7-7-7------------------------------------------------|
A|--7-7-7-7----7-7-7----5-5-5------------------------------------------------|
E|--5-5-5-5------------------------------------------------------------------|


This is Andy's part just before the second verse. And this also comes in for the last 
of the second verse as well.
    Em        B (2 fr.) B      Am
e|------------------------0-0-------------------------------------------------|
B|--8--8-8-8--------------1-1-------------------------------------------------|
G|--9--9-9-9--8----4-4----2-2-------------------------------------------------|
D|--9--9-9-9--9----4-4----2-2-------------------------------------------------|
A|--7--7-7-7--9----2-2--------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------7---------------------------------------------------------------|

    Em        B (2 fr.) B      B
e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--8--8-8-8------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--9--9-9-9--8----4-4----4-4-------------------------------------------------|
D|--9--9-9-9--9----4-4----2-2-------------------------------------------------|
A|--7--7-7-7--9----2-2----2-2-------------------------------------------------|
E|------------7---------------------------------------------------------------|

Be sure to catch where the down and up strokes come in... during the main riff especially.


Verse One:
Em         B        Asus2         Am
Makes my hair stand up on end
Something alien happening
Synchronized but don't comprehend
Coz where I stop that's where you begin

Em         B        Asus2         Am
I know the moment I commit
A pleasure rising when I take the hit
And I'm addicted to state you're in
Cos you're getting me out of it

Chorus:
A5           E5           D5
Wasted
There is nothing gonna ace this
And we're gonna go to space kid
Cos I'm leaving with an astronaut

(Andy Chords Before And During The Second Verse)
Em     B (2 fr.)    B    Am
Em     B (2 fr.)    B    B

Verse Two:
Em         B        Asus2         Am
Groovin-out to x-ray spex
Something tells me you're the alien sex
I can't imagine now; what comes next
When this astronaut connects?

Em         B        Asus2         Am
Coming-on when I touch your skin
A kind of strange light you emit
I feel your gravity pull me in
Now you're getting me out of it

Chorus:
A5           E5           D5
Wasted
There is nothing gonna ace this
And we're gonna go to space kid
Cos I'm leaving with an astronaut
(Repeat Again)

Bridge:
(No Chords Played Here)
Bare-feet for quantam leap
Because space is hot and deep
And we follow giant footprints as we fall... in
falling like the twins through Saturn's holy rings
And if they can't hold us
Where it's gonna end up - anybody knows

Interlude:
A5           E5           D5

An A-stronaut
An A-stronaut

Guitar Solo:
Here's my interpretation of the guitar solo from what I can hear.

e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--1/5--3------3(h)-------4--3-----------1/5--3------3(h)-------4--3---------|
E|------------5----------2---------2--2------------5-----------2---------2(h)-|


Chorus:
A5           E5           D5
Wasted
There is nothing gonna ace this
And we're gonna go to space kid
Cos I'm leaving with an astronaut
(Repeat Again)

Finale:
A5           E5           D5
Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop
An A-stronaut
Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop
An A-stronaut
Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop
An A-stronaut
Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop-Boop
An A-stronaut
