About this tab version
This version contains the correct version of hammer on and pull off, which I mentioned in earlier versions of the website and also added the chord progression for the fill after the second chorus. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Song: AKA... What a Life!
Artist: Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds
Album: Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds

I saw some versions of this song on many websites, and although they were close, they were not exact as 
the record sounded. 

This song calls for use of hammer-on and pull-off throughout. Please listen to the song for strumming.

Capo is on 4th fret and here are the chords you need to know:
(All the chords are relative to the capo):

Am    (x02210)
FM7   (x33210)
Dsus2 (xx0230)
Em    (022000)
G6    (320000)

[INTRO]
(Play the Am and keep doing the hammer-on and pull-off on the G string.)

[VERSE 1]
(Play the Am and keep doing the hammer-on and pull-off on the G string.)

Am
Someday you might find your hero
Am 
Some say you might lose your mind
Am 
I keeping my head down now for the summer
Am 
I'm outta my mind let me pull the other
Am 
I'm gonna take that tiger outside for a ride


[CHORUS 1]
(While playing the chords from the word "life", as you shift towards the chords, lift the finger from the
G string and shift into the next chord.)

Am      FM7  Dsus2  Am
What a liiiiiiiiiiife!
Am      FM7  Dsus2  Am
What a liiiiiiiiiiife!

[VERSE 2]
(Play the Am and keep doing the hammer-on and pull-off on the G string.)

Am
Keep on chasing down that rainbow
Am
You'll never know what you might find
Am
Over the sunset on the horizon
Am
Maybe you dream but it tastes like poison
Am
I'm gonna take that tiger outside for a ride

[CHORUS 2]
(While playing the chords from the word "life", as you shift towards the chords, lift the finger from the
G string and shift into the next chord.)

Am      FM7  Dsus2  Am
What a liiiiiiiiiiife!
Am      FM7  Dsus2  Am
What a liiiiiiiiiiife!
Am      FM7  Dsus2  Am
What a liiiiiiiiiiife!
Am      FM7  Dsus2  Am
What a liiiiiiiiiiife!

[FILL]
(FM7 and Am is already shown in the earlier parts here. Em and G6 is played with hammer on and pull off with
a note on 2nd fret of the G string)

FM7    Em    Am    G6

[CHORUS 3]
(Continue the above chord progression, in the chorus, so instead of starting with Am like it did in earlier
part, it will start from G6)

       FM7  Em  Am  G6
What a liiiiiiiiiiife!
       FM7  Em  Am  G6
What a liiiiiiiiiiife!
       FM7  Em  Am  G6
What a liiiiiiiiiiife!
       FM7  Em  Am  G6
What a liiiiiiiiiiife!

[OUTRO]
(Play the Am and keep doing the hammer-on and pull-off on the G string.)

Am
Someday you might find your hero
Am 
Some say you might lose your mind

For the following part, there is absolutely no need to play the Am with a hammer on and pull off on the 
G string. Just sit on the Am chord throughout the "woo-hoo"

Am
