She said           I know what it's like  to  be  dead        I know what it ...
Basically it's these three chords for nearly the whole song, apart from :
 EmA7DA7D
When I was a boy          e'thing was right           e'thing was right
And that's it.
As for the instruments : one guitar plays the chords, with a cleanish sound
The second electric plays lead parts which sometimes echo the tune, but this
guitar also plays the riff that comes after ' making me feel like I've never
been born' :

So , with these two guitars you have bass - fairly simple stuff here, a lot of
root notes except for the 'when I was a boy' bit, where the bass plays on the
1st 3rd and 5th of the chords.
Add drums, and harmony vocals (nearly all singing in 3rds) and you've got it.
I just recorded a cover of this on 8-track, and stuck pretty much to the
original sound. I double tracked that riff to give it more edge, and added a few
more vocals, but it sounded very good.
As a point of interest, check out the cymbals on the original.
On the bit with the guitar riff (between verses) there seem to be a lot of loud
cymbals - a lot louder than the bulk of the song.
Maybe they overdubbed extra cymbals here ?
It certainly gives it a powerful sound, and on the fade out too there's a lot
of cymbals.
Great song !
