Learn How To Play The Cranberries Zombie Guitar Chords

There are many ways to protest, some peacefully others less so and are marked by violence, but rarely someone does so remains in history and creates an empathy that can even get to play very deep in those against whom we are revealing that breaks mental barriers and time, I can not be talking about something else but a song. I have rarely seen such power in a comparable only with the speeches of the great pacifist and orators of history message.
the-cranberries-zombie-guitar-tabI am not exaggerating when I make these comparisons, because when a song evokes a very powerful feeling means it has served its purpose. Zombie is one of the many hits that left his legacy in the Cranberries, a band that is already icon of the 90’s a decade that was characterized by being full of versatility and brought one of the richest periods in music.
His powerful message stands loud and clear and resounding in the ears of those who lived firsthand the misery that only brings war, and good not only on them but on all those who played his cassette, which were on the bus listening to him in your walkman and all that we now play a video on youtube, that’s what I mean when talking about empathy, that is to talk about a legacy and transcend time by a message and not a trend or pose.
Zombie was released in 1994 on the album “No Need to Argue” disk generally earned many positive reviews internationally unique style that fused post-punk, indie and pop made a difference as I said before; in a decade full of good examples.
Dolores O’Riordan wrote the song in memory of Tim Parry Jonathan Ball t, a couple of children who were massacred by the IRA bombed Warrington while by the year 1993. The event was disowned by many international organizations and the news spread throughout the world.
On the issue O’Riordan made it clear repudiation he felt for this stupid war that just kept generating more innocent victims. The underlying message of the song speaks of peace between Ireland and England, and give way to reconciliation, that this silly conflict and halt further progress towards a better future. Dolores O’Riordan was really shocked by the facts and realized that the war would soon control and more innocent people die by both countries. That’s why every concert she read: “children are the future of the world, do not understand how someone wants to harm them.”
In his native country, the issue became a hit and declared hymn of peace, the British did the same and had a positive impact on people as both sides failed to agree ordinary people and ordinary sued for peace .
