                             Nuclear attack - Gary Moore
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is how I play that song. Hope it sounds right.

Intro:

6x Main Riff


Verse 1:

F                       F
Out on the streets they're all living in fear

1x Main Riff

F                       F
Your can hear their hearts pound as the moment draws near
1x Main Riff

D                       Eb                 F                            C
One push of a button is all it would take    to dress the world in black

D                          Eb                   F                         (one bar without chord)
One fault in the system, a fatal mistake   and you'll never come back    from a nuclear attack

2x Main Riff


Verse 2:
same chords as Verse 1


For the next part where Moore sings something like

You ain't never coming back, no, from a nuclear attack
 Oh, no no no no no, yeah oh

play the following powerchords with palm mute:

G  G  Eb  Eb  F  F  C  C

Rythm:

|essessessess|
e = eighth note
s = sixteenth note

Then there are four bars you can play a D over and then it goes into:

e|-------------------------------------|--------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------|--------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------|--------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------|--------------------------------------|
A|-0-h-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-0-h-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|-0-h-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-------4----------|
E|-0-h-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-0-h-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-|-0-h-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-------2----------|
   s   s s s s s s s s   s s s s s s s   s   s s s s s s s q       q

Those are palm mutes except for the hammer ons and the last two quarter notes.
After those two bars Gary Moore does some insane solo tricks in the next two bars.
This is done four times and then the two bars shown above are played again followed
by four bars of D and it goes back to the main riff:

6x Main Riff

Verse 3:
same chords as Verse 1


3x   G  G  Eb  Eb  F  F  C  C


4x Main Riff
