Guitar tabs of the new songs

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

Being absolutely useless at transcribing songs by ear, my ability to play Sisters songs is largely stolen from GTA. Alas that fades out around "Come Together". I can (roughly) play Slept, Summer, Suzanne and Crash & Burn thanks to the help of bits and pieces on here and rare moments of not-so-uselessness on the part of my own ears, but the others are a mystery to me. Could anyone point me in the direction of tabs for any of the new songs (heaven knows I could improve the ones I can already play...) or be kind enough as to post their own interpretations here? It'd be cool to have a full reference for them, particularly since they aren't on CD - might make them a bit more "real" in the internetty scheme of things.

Thanks... for the asking about tabs and for providing a fresh looking link.
It even has guitar tabs for 1959... I already have a guitar version I can
hear only in my head. :lol:

I may have to bust out and blow the dust out of my guitar this summer! :wink:

Well, I tabbed some Sisters' songs (Slept, Susanne, Afterhours, Alice, More, Lights) for Ultimate Guitar
(http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/sis ... y_tabs.htm).
Now I'm working on Arms. ;D
Check out my tabs and feel free to rate them and/ or leave a comment. :D

It always amazes me that amount of mistakes there are in online tab music. Makes me wonder if people actually listen to the records!

Arms is in drop d tuning.

Summer and Still are both in A and played using the open strings, not the fifth position chords.

See my version of Will I Dream to play it correcty :)

You chose a very kind way of putting it.
The Alice Tab is pretty mucho on target though. The tabs often still are good hints for starting with, but I never saw *one*, and that includes the ones in guitar magazines I bought, that really matched the actual songs entirely.
@Methedrome: The dropped d tuning is for all the new songs, isn't it? I didn't see Chris or Ben retune their guitars as often on stage, and there very surely is no Dropped-D-Tuner mechanic on the body of either guitar.

Edit: This is how the riff during the verse of Susanne looks like:

e-------------------------------------------
B----1-0-----1-0---1-----0-----1-0--
G--------2---------------0----------------
D-2--------2----------2-------2--------
A-------------------------------------------
E-------------------------------------------

e---------------------------------------------------
B---------------------------------------------------
G---5-4--2------5-4--5----4-0------5-4----
D-2----------2------------2--------2-------------
A---------------------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------------------

Umm-Godsquad? I didn't get an edit-button here.. I had to quote myself (Which I hate, normally I don't quote nuttbags) and edit the qutation tags out..

@Methedrome:

Hmmm... I don't think that Arms is on drop-D. :roll:
Actually, it may be easier if you play it on drop-D, but I still believe it's on standard tuning.
Please gimme a tab of (new) Train!!! ;D

I have yet to see one that gets the part on the high e-string "correct"...

I still haven't seen one with the intro totally correct either!

The e string though, depends on which version you're listening to, original goes up, 1993 goes down mirroring the B string line.

That new FALAA from Chris Randell is totally off!

Please help me! :|

When I tabbed "Slept" for ultimate-guitar.com
( http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/s/s ... in_tab.htm )
I was pretty sure that the main chords on riff and verse were Am, C and Em.
The other day I suspected (!) that it's a Bm instead of Em.
Could someone who knows confirm about the right thing?
:roll:


...please... :)

I just listened to this

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_HuSznJ ... re=related

the bass plays an E with the B-C-B-hook.
I hear Em on the guitar but I can't be 100% sure. Bm just doesnt sound quite right but my hearing ain't what it used to be :)
