Another Lonely Day | TAB


As the chords for Another Lonely Day are simple and common open-position chords, you’ll learn to play this tune very quickly.

To get it just like Ben Harper plays it, you must pay attention to a few small details, these are best described using TAB, here’s the verse:

Another Lonely Day TAB, verse.

Things to look out for here are the bass notes taking you to another chord (/B, /A, and /E) as well as the open strings between the Am and Em chords.

Play along with the original (if tuned down) or the live version until it makes sense. He does strum a bit more on the live version, the TAB above is of the original recording.

Here are the chorus chords using TAB:

Another Lonely Day TAB, chorus.

In this section, we start off playing an Fsus2 chord, not an F. Small details like this really help make a simple chord progression stand out.

It also helps you if you get this kind of detail right as most would just search online for Another Lonely Day chords and see how it’s almost always written as a plain F chord.

Going the extra mile, and getting the chords 100% right is what will land you a good gig. Make it a habit.

The G6 is a nice detail, and so is the bass note of /E taking us back to the chorus, or /A taking us to a verse again.

Should you end up teaching a beginner how to play guitar, Another Lonely Day is a perfect choice as the chords are simple, still, there is some nice detail in there. Check my beginner acoustic songs for more tunes like this.
