Gone Away Tab
Offspring - Gone Away [Guitar & Bass Tabs]

There are so many horrifically wrong tabs for this song. which is a shame as it
has to be one of the best OFFSPRING songs out there. so Ive decided to give you
the absolute correct version of both guitar and bass. there are some other tabs
on the site with 5 stars which are totally wrong- if you play this version along
with the song you'll hear that its more or less bang on.
we'll start with guitar:
Tuning: E A D G B E (standard tuning)

Intro/chorus (guitar 1)
e-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
b-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
g-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-----------------8-8-8-8-8-8-8-------------------------
d-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10--6-6-6-6-6-6-6--8-8-8-8-8-8-8--8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--------
a--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--6-6-6-6-6-6-6--6-6-6-6-6-6-6--8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--------
e--------------------------4-4-4-4-4-4-4-----------------6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6--------

Then 2nd guitar comes in with this very "meaty" sounding riff (noodles)(guitar 1
carries on with the previous riff)

e-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--8-8-8-8-8-8-8--6-6-6-6-6-6-6---6-6-6-6-6-6-6---------
b-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6--9-9-9-9-9-9-9--4-4-4-4-4-4-4---6-6-6-6-6-6-6---------
g-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
d-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
a-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
e-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

guitar 1 lets this note ring......
e-------
b-------
g-------
d---3---
a---3---
e---1---

...whilst guitar 2 starts this nice sounding solo (solo 1) (Ive found that a
chorus pedal works well with this- but if you dont have one then some reverb
should be fine)
e-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
b-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
g----------10---------8--------8-8-103-3--3-5----------------------------------
d--8-10--------5-6------3-5--------------------3(let ring through verse)--------
a-------8----------6--------6---------------------------------------------------
e-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CHORUS: both guitars play the intro/chorus. when Dexter stops singing, guitar two
breaks off and plays the "meaty" riff twice through.

2nd half of the second verse (bridge):
e------8------6------6--1----4----------      -----
b----6------4------4-------3---4/6------      -----
g--5------5------3--------3-------------   x2 -----
d---------------------------------------      --8--
a---------------------------------------      --8--(this note is palm muted 
e---------------------------------------      --6--  near the end on guitar 1)

This is the whole song- the rest of the song carries on with all these parts
(remember the first part of the chorus is played the same on both guitars-
the "meaty" riff only comes in during the 2nd run through- when he stops singing
and starts doing that little moan thing.)

Now for the bass:
Tuning: E A D G (standard tuning)

Intro/Chorus
g-------------------------------------------------------------------
d-------------------------------------------------------------------
a--8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-----------------6-6-6-6-6-6-6-8------------------
e------------------4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4------------------6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-

Verse:
g-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
d-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
a-------------------------------------3--6-6-6-6-6-6-6-8----------------------
e--1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-3--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4--------------------6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6--5-4-

Bridge: (same as verse)

Ending:
g-----------------------
d-----------------------
a-----------------------
e--6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-1--

Im not a bassist so theres probably stacks of room for improvement here, but I
thought this could get you started. Ill add an order of how it is played to try
and make more sense of it:
intro 2x
verse 3x
chorus 4x
verse 4x
chorus 4x
verse and bridge
chorus 2x
verse 2x
chorus and ending

Lyrics: 
VERSE 1
Maybe in another life
I could meet you there
Pulled away before your time
I cant deal, its so unfair

CHORUS 1
And it feels
And it feels like
Heavens so far away
And it feels
Yeah it feels like
The world has grown cold
Now that youve gone away

VERSE 2
Leaving flowers on your grave
Show that I still care
But black roses and hail Marys
Cant bring back whats taken from me

BRIDGE
I reach to the sky
And call out your name
And if I could trade
I would

CHORUS 2
And it feels
And it feels like
Heavens so far away
And it stings
Yeah it stings now
The world is so cold
Now that youve gone away

Ok there we are!!! This is a fantastic song to play in a band so I hope that
this has helped out a little for all you budding musicians!!! if anyone has any
feedback or comments/corrections, please dont hesitate to put them in the
comments box at the top of the page. Thanks everybody!!!

About the artist behind Gone Away Tab:

The Offspring (sometimes referred to simply as Offspring) are a popular and influential[8] American punk rock band from Garden Grove, California formed in 1984. Since its inception, the band's line-up has included Dexter Holland (lead vocals, guitar), Noodles (lead and rhythm guitars, backing vocals) and Greg K. (bass, backing vocals). Their current drummer is Pete Parada, formerly of Face to Face and Saves the Day, who has been with the band since 2007.

Since the release of their 1994 album Smash, which is the best-selling independent label album of all time,[9] The Offspring have achieved commercial success over five albums, with singles such as "Come Out and Play", and "Self Esteem". The band's next three albums, Ixnay on the Hombre, Americana and Conspiracy of One, were also successful, reaching platinum certification and gold status respectively.[10][11] Longtime drummer Ron Welty left The Offspring in early 2003, and was replaced by Atom Willard. Later that year, the band released their next album, Splinter, to moderate sales and fairly warm reviews. In 2005, The Offspring released a greatest hits album and toured in support of the compilation. Their next album, titled Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace, will be released on June 16, 2008 in Europe and a day later in the United States [12]; it can be streamed for free online, as well.[13]

To date, The Offspring have released eight studio albums, one compilation, four EPs and three DVD's[14], selling over 38 million albums worldwide[9], making them one of the best-selling punk acts of all time.[15] The band is credited, along with fellow California punk bands Green Day and Rancid, with reviving popular interest in punk rock in the United States during the mid-1990s.[16]
