>THE SISTERS OF MERCY - "Black Planet"

>Comments, corrections etc. welcome.

I find this riff a little easier to play than all the stretching in the
previous version:
Main riffs:

e ---5---0-------------------|
B ----------6--------0-------|
G -------------7--6----------|
D -7---7---------------7-----|
A ---------------------------|
E ---------------------------|

>e -------------------------3---1-0---|
>B -0/1-1--0/1-1--1/3-3-3-3---3-------|
>G -----------------------------------|
>D -----------------------------------|
>A -----------------------------------|
>E -----------------------------------|


>A twelve string guitar plays, at "Run around in the radiation":

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

>...and an  Am  Gm  F  pattern at "So still, so dark..."


>Listen where to play the respective part. Not that tricky.
>The chords are pretty easy, simply  Am  F  in the intro,  Am  D  in
>the verses, and  Am  F  in the chorus.

>There are several guitars playing on the record. To play it on just
>one guitar, the following blend of the chords & riffs can be used
>(leave the notes ringing for as long as possible) :


>For the  Am  F  pattern :

>e ---0---0----1---0----------|
>B ------------1-------3-1-0--|
>G -2---2---2--2-2---2--------|
>D -2----------3--------------|
>A -0-------------------------|
>E ---------------------------|


>, and for the  Am  D  one :

>e -------------------------------------------------------------|
>B -0/1-1-1--1-1-1--0/1-1-1--1-1-1--1-3-3-3--3-3-3--3---1---0---|
>G -2---2-2--2-2-2--2---2-2--2-2-2--2-2-2-2--2-2-2--3---1---0---|
>D -2---2-2--2-2-2--2---2-2--2-2-2--2-0-0-0--0-0-0--2-2---2-----|
>A -0---0-0--0-0-0--0---0-0--0-0-0--0---------------0-0---0-----|
>E -------------------------------------------------------------|

>(The rhythm of this can look difficult to follow, however it will
>hopefully make sense when you listen to the song.)


>In the western sky, My kingdom come

>So still so dark all over Europe
>And I ride down the highway 101
>By the side of the ocean headed for sunset
>For the kingdom come
>for the

>CHORUS

>Black, Black planet
>Black, Black world
>(repeat)

>Run around in the radiation
>Run around in the acid rain
>On a
>Black, Black planet
>Black planet hanging over the highway
>Out of my mind's eye
>Out of the memory
>Black world out of my mind

>So still so dark all over Europe
>And the rainbow rises here
>In the western sky
>The kill to show for
>At the end of the great white pier
>I see a

>CHORUS

>Run around in the radiation
>Tune in turn on burn out in the acid rain on a..

>CHORUS
>(repeat to fade)

I happened to have FALAA on tonight, and got inspired to figure out
what he's *really* playing.  Close to what I had, but not exactly.
(It's almost exactly what I'd had about two revisions ago... :) Here's
the Real Thing.
