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.

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 :)
It seems correct to me too.
Thank you. :notworthy:

I seem to find only lunatic chords for 1959. If those are true, then no wonder they never play that song live, because, seriously, have a look:
1959 WTF?

It's written for keyboard not guitar, so guitar chords don't really fit.

Yes yes 1959!!! :notworthy:

You mean that programme? I don't have it :oops: Should I get it? What does it do? I only have my laptop and an acoustic guitar.

The strange thing is that the first lines totally make sense:

Em G D
Living as Angel in the place that I was born
Em G D
Living on air... ... living in heaven
Em G D
Giving the lie down, the line
Em G D
To the there's my heaven

and only after that it starts to get ... complicated :eek:

Yeah, I figured they will never never play it live, so if I wanna hear it, I'd have to teach myself ;)

Don't worry, there's always a 1% chance to listen it :D.
They played the first riff in 1992 - NEC, Birmingham right before 1969.

You can download a Trial Version of Guitar Pro here: http://www.guitar-pro.com/en/index.php?pg=download
Soon i arrive home, i'll export my MIDIs to a GP6 file, so you might be able to hear and learn it.
1959 isn't easy to play on a guitar, in fact, when you receive the file, you 'll see two 'note tracks' , each one it's for a different hand to piano.
Basically you 'll need to learn each hand on Guitar, and then try to play together. :lol:

I did a remix once for 1959 but I never recorded the MIDI... :innocent:

It's not easy, no, not at all. Very weird chord progressions.

I Have a feeling that if would played live, it be with Doktor and Von only.
Ben and Chris would do just some chords to bring more 'life' on it, just like in the most parts of Rain from Heaven or Neverland.

BTW, in 9hours i'll post the GP6 file here ok? so, prepare your Guitar Pro :lol:

Can't wait to get home and check out this with a guitar in my hands, thanks Husek for all the good work transcribing this stuff. I was working on a version of Ribbons with some mind bending guitar panning effects but got a bit lost with all the litle riffy lines. Can you offer any help with them? At the moment I am programming the midi for Crash and Burn into my personal Doktor (Laptop running Ableton 8) So any help with tab for that would be massively appreciated also. Would be nice if we could get lots of good midi backing tracks for everyone with their personal dokotrs to play along to and accurate tab...


That was supposed to be ableton 8 close brackets, damn this technology stuff :lol:

You are welcome fellas.

@Ribbons Thing - How exactly i can help you oz?

@Crash and Burn.

Hm, Crash and burn it's a complicated song to explain, the main riff it's all abouta good picking technique and rhythm and the chorus it's boring a lot without the dok doing the synth strings.

Crash and Burn it's basically what you can see here
http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/sisters ... n_tab.html

if you want to know the Doktor synth strings, i can transcribe it, but i'll ask to wait 'til weekend, because i'll need a Piano for it, and only my Girl have one.

When you finish your MIDI, post it here, I',m a MIDI Fanatic haha.
BTW, are you pretty sure about the ableton? why not Cubase or Logic? Just saying :lol:
