Hi everyone.

Here's the tab for "Hold on to your friends" Of my favourite singer, Morrisey.
As you may see, i couldn't transcribe the main part, and the intro is very
basic and needs improvment too, but i guess that it's better than nothing :).

Intro :

There are tw guitars in the intro, an electric one and an accustic
one. The electic plays that :


And the accustic plays that :


and after that he stars to sing. Here are the chords, they sound
ok, but i could define one of them, and i called him C?. You can
post me the name of it. Anyway, here they are.

Em F
To fight and oppose

Em F

The other Cs and the C7s sound right though
