Don’t Look Back In Anger chords and progressions (lesson preview)

Don’t Look Back In Anger Analysis + TAB T

The chords are diatonic to the key of C and are seemingly simple as they can mostly be played using open-position chords.

However, strumming them well on just one acoustic guitar does present several problems, you could easily overdo it and end up sounding annoying.

As I was transcribing Don’t Look Back In Anger, I found several ways to make it sound nice. Members get TAB for this that was developed in a way that works if there is only one guitar playing the chords.

This will mean some modification to what you see above using chords and lyrics. For example, the intro is a combination of the piano and guitar parts from the original recording.

We play a lot of F/C, instead of an F. The G6/G# chord is much easier to play than to say and the bridge (with its FFmCCsus2) gets a great part that can only be described using TAB.

Should you want to play along with the original recording, you may find that you’re guitar is not in tune, that’s because the original recording is slightly sharp. 

Using my online tuner, you can change the pitch and tune around 450hz, instead of the standard 440.

Don’t Look Back In Anger was Oasis’s biggest hit!

As Oasis’ 2nd most widely known song (after Wonderwall), Don’t Look Back In Anger was off their incredibly successful second album (What’s The Story) Morning Glory?

Released in 1995, it would come to define the Brit-pop era and spark a fan rivalry between Oasis and Blur, only comparable to that of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones in the ’60s.

It would also take Oasis from a celebrated U.K. indie band to worldwide recognition.

Even though Wonderwall is a more well-known song, Don’t Look Back In Anger charted higher at #1, with Wonderwall reaching #2. Both songs contributed to the 22 million sales the album achieved.
