Libera nos a malo  Ligabue

Date: Sat, 27 Dec 1997 20:51:27 +0100
From: "Ist. Magistrale \"C. De Titta\""
Subject: TAB: "Libera nos a malo" by Ligabue
Song name: "Libera nos a malo"
Artist: Luciano Ligabue
Original album name: "Lambrusco, coltelli, rose e popcorn" (Italy, 1992)
Author (words and music): Luciano Ligabue
Guitar effects used: nothing special, only a serious distorsion and
quite a lot reverb
Song speed: about 145 bpm
Notes on the song: I transcribed the arrangement of the studio version;
it can sound different from the more recent live version (from the album
"Su e gi� da un palco" - 1997).
I know that there is already a version of this song, but I think that my
transcription could be added to that one because:
- I added significant corrections to the lead guitar parts (solo and
- I rewrote (I think more exactly) the chords succession
- I transcribed in full the lyrics, which aren't present in Enrico
Ruggeri's version
- I admit that I took several things from Enrico Ruggeri's version and
I'm ready to acknowledge the fact.
Happy new year!

Play 2 times the riff, then...
...2nd verse (the same chords as before):
Oh, mama, mama, sar� cattivo,

Eccomi, mama, col capo chino,

Oh, mama,

Oh, mama,
o � proprio questo che non si pu� dire?
Libera nos a malo,

Libera nos a malo,
toglici pure il perch�
Libera libera libe, libera libera libera, libera
