I had a request for this song by System Tazvida and Chazezesa Challengers(sometimes listed as Zvawaida Zvakaramba) and it’s only taken me about a year to get it down. The trickiest part is sticking to alternate picking. I found it a big challenge but it does make for a much cleaner sound.
The tab is made up of two parts. Bars 1 – 10 are the intro. Then there’s a short riff for 4 bars. That’s followed in bar 15 by the break that starts at 2:50 in the original.
The original (or at least the version I was working from) is tuned slightly flat. As is the guitar in the video.
Bars 1 and 2
Because of the lack of drums I had a hard time getting the timing down for this bit.
Bars 2 – 4
The song’s main riff. I’ve tabbed the first G as being at the 10th fret. But I sometimes play it at the 15th fret based on my mood and where I find my fingers.
Bars 5 – 15
Shifting up to the 15th fret. I’m doing a little finger shift in the even bars. I play the 14th fret with my index finger, 15th with middle finger. Then shift back up again so the index finger is on the 15th fret.
Bars 15 – 22
A bit of respite here with a more relaxed section.
