Duran Duran - One Of Those Days (2004)

Tabbed by: trevgreg

Tuning: Standard


This is the tenth track from the band's Astronaut album. Lots of keyboards in this song, and
there's a pretty simple guitar riff or two you can get out of it.


This riff is played during the verses. Don't forget that a D5 is played instead of a B5 
the last line of the two verses also.

Here's another distorted riff that Andy sometimes plays between Simon's lines during the verses.

The chords below are played during the chorus twice. Towards the end of it, just before Simon
sings "I'm not the only one", repeat the D5 arrangement and then play the G5-D5 transition
shown below as many times needed.

    E                       B5                      G5                     D5

I couldn't hear the guitar as well towards the end of the song, but I figured out a 
structure to strum to that should be pretty close to what's being played. You'll see it in 
the lyrics underneath here.


F#5          G5            B5
Suddenly it all looks so familiar
F#5          G5            B5
Gone and wrecked it, like I always did
F#5          G5            B5
Don't you know that life is out to kill ya
F#5          G5            D5
But you still go getting on with it

E               B5
Seen better times than right now
G5             D5
But I'm not running away
No nothing's gonna bring me down
G5             D5           D5
It's just been one of those days
G5             D5
I'm not the only one

F#5          G5            B5
They can drag me to the gates of hell now
F#5          G5            B5
There's nothing left but I'm still hangin' in
F#5          G5            B5
Not for me, ain't no final showdown
F#5          G5            D5
I'm too shattered to do anything

E               B5
Seen better times than right now
G5             D5
But I'm not running away
E               B5
Coz nothing's gonna bring me down
G5             D5           D5
It's just been one of those days
G5             D5
I'm not the only
D5
one feeling this way
G5             D5
and i'm not sorry


B5   -   G5   -   D5   -   E

B5   -   G5   -   D5


E             G5
I'm not the only
D5
one feeling this way
E             G5
And i'm not sorry
D5
Not runnin' away
E             G5
I'm not the only
D5
One feeling this way
E             G5
And I'm not sorry
D5
i hear you say
E             G5
no i'm not sorry


E   -   G5   -   D5
