Song: Land of Confusion
Written by: Genesis (Phil Collins, Tony Banks, and Mike Rutherford)
Remade by: Disturbed
Difficulty: Intermediate
Tuning: Drop D (Down Half Step /// This means all Notes are Flat)

LEGEND:

/ = Slide Down
\ = Slide Up
h = Hammer on
p = Pull off
~ = Hold Note/Let Ring
PM = Palm Mute

Great song by Genesis, even better by Disturbed.

If you don't like my Tab, don't post flames and crap like that saying "You suck". This
probably THE NUMBER ONE internet guitar tab site. Go use one of the other thousands of
it has to offer. But on another note, this is my version of Land of Confusion by 
And don't forget, if you plan on playing along with the CD, remember to tune to DROP D FLAT!

This song isn't too difficult. The Guitar I Verse can be frustrating to get the rythym
first, but just practice it enough and you'll get it in time. And if you have trouble
positions during the Intro, Just use the root notes on the Low E (In this case D) 
That's what I did when playing for friends and family and concerts etc. Again, those parts
take time and practice to get.


Intro: (Recommend Only Downstrokes)

LYRICS:

Verse:
I must have dreamed a thousand dreams
Been haunted by a million screams
But I can hear the marching feet
They're moving into the street

Now, did you read the news today?
They say the danger has gone away
But I can see the fire's still alight
They're burning into the night

Pre-Chorus:
There's too many men, too many people
Making too many problems
And there's not much love to go around
Can't you see this is the land of confusion?

Chorus:
This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given
Use them and let's start trying
To make it a place worth living in

Verse:
Oh, superman, where are you now?
When everything's gone wrong somehow?
The men of steel, I hate these men of power
I'm losing control by the hour

Pre-Chorus:
This is the time, this is the place
So we look for the future
But there's not much love to go around
Tell me why this is the land of confusion

Chorus:
This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given
Use them and let's start trying
To make it a place worth living in

Interlude:
I remember long ago
When the sun was shining
And all the stars were bright all through the night
In the wake up this madness, as I held you tight
So long ago

Verse:
I won't be coming home tonight
My generation will put it right
We're not just making promises
That we know we'll never keep

Pre-Chorus:
There's too many men, too many people
Making too many problems
And there's not much love to go round
Can't you see this is the land of confusion?

Chorus:
Now, this is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given
Use them and let's start trying
To make it a place worth fighting for

This is the world we live in
And these are the names we're given
Stand up and let's start showing
Just where our lives are going to

That's all there is Folks. If you got any questions email me at zodiac.reaper@hotmail.com

it all looks good to me, but i am wondering, why did you make the ending of the solo go down? i watched him play it live and he uses tapped harmonics off of the ninth (i think) fret on the second string to get the high notes.

Well Actually, most of the solo came straight from the book. I used this site to get the feel for the song, but nothing seemed right, so I had to figure it out for myself. And for the solo, I got the first half, but then I got lost on the speedy part, so I just went out and bought the book =P

And I forgot to add, I also saw them live and I got a DVD (Which is Currently with my Cousin)and this is how he played it in those.

But whatever. Most people play these songs differently anyway. But I garuntee this IS right. And remember, alot of bands play their songs differently live than they do in the Studio.
