Here's how to play the classic beginners electric guitar song "Zombie" by Irish rock band The Cranberries!

This song has just 4 chords; Em, C major, G major and D major. These chords are played as clean open chords, and then as distorted power chords. This change of sound mid-song can be achieved by having an overdrive/distortion pedal, or a 2 (or more) channel guitar amplifier.

Dolores herself went on to become an icon in her own right, influencing countless fans plus artists as diverse as Florence Welsh and Adele to Faye Wong, one of China's biggest pop stars.
