Duran Duran - Nite-Runner (2007)


Tuning: Standard


This is the first completed song for the Red Carpet Massacre album, which was a collaboration
between Duran Duran with both Timbaland and Justin Timberlake. Although the Red Carpet Massacre
been criticized by some fans for not having enough guitar parts on it, there are actually
a few obvious guitar parts on this song that can be played. Overall, Dom Brown contributes
his own part for the songs main hook line, as well as some funky guitar up the fretboard
and a quietly hidden melody on the songs bridge.


This part is played by Dom Brown during the Can I put my hands on you tonight? hook of the
song, which goes along with the vocal melody during it as well. He also delivers this riff
during the break just before the second verse. The riff is basically following a scale in
G# at first, as you can see.  He repeats the main line twice before sliding off the D string
on the 6th fret right at the end during the breaks, while he actually does it twice more during
the pre-chorus each time.

On another note, you might want to do some sort of slide on that string as your ending the
chords higher up the fretboard (as youll see later) once you start playing this riff each
time.

Im fairly sure the riff above is accurate, as this is how it was played by Dom Brown at the
first performances of the song and this is what it sounds like after I singled out the guitar
people who are just hearing if over the song. Below is what it sounds more like, which might
fit better with how youre playing it. Ive also seen bass tabs for Nite-Runner that seem
to follow this riff as well, so take your pick.

E|----------4--7-------------------------------4--7-------------------------------------|


These are the parts Dom plays during the verses and choruses in the song, which all start
on the 11th fret of the A string (also in a G# key like the main riff). They vary a little on
each type, so Ill try to single out how he plays them on each one.

Here is what it sounds like hes playing on the first verse, the first two choruses, and the
first part of the second verse. For this riff, it also sounds like hes plucking the A string
motions here, along with the palm-muting that goes with it.

This is what it sounds like hes playing on the final 8 measures of the second verse, when
Simon starts to sing the Should I be surprised? line.

This is the riff playing during the third chorus and first 4 measures of the fourth choruses.
As you can see, its exactly the same as the verse/chorus riff...

 and this appears to be what hes playing during the final four measures in the third and
fourth choruses. The last part will be silent, unlike the usual verse/chorus riff played before.
Dom will only play the slide at the end at the end of the third chorus, so make sure not to
do that during the fourth one when Simon and Justin close out the song on their own vocally.

This riff below is played during the bridge in the song, where Simon LeBon, Timbaland, and
Justin Timberlake sing at the same time. If not for a remix contest last year where all the
individual tracks for the song were released to the public, I may not have even known this
part existed! In any case, it is there and for those of you wondering how to play it, it
should go something like this. Make sure you repeat it twice over the 20-second bridge too.
