                             HANDSOME DEVIL - The Smiths
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Emilym80

Tuning: Standard
'Handsome Devil' by the Smiths from their album 'Hatful of Hollow' (1984). 
The song can be broken down into 4 sections.

A: Intro/chorus/outro
e|------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------2------------------------------------|
G|---------------4----------------8---8-----------|
D|-----7-6-----2---2-4-----7-6------9---6-4-------|
A|-4-7-----4-----------4-7-----4------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------|
The second fill is pretty hard to hear because of the mix so I 
don't know if it's 100% correct but it works.
The fills are not the same the whole way through as Marr plays
some variations.

B: Verse "all the streets are crammed with things" etc
e|------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------|
G|-6x-66\4-6x--8-8--9-x-9-9\-8-9-x-9-9--8--------o|
D|-6x-66\4-6x-----9-11x-1111\9-11x-1111-9--------o|
A|------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------|
Listen to the song for the timing and try to keep the same 
bouncy feel Marr has. I use only downstrokes apart from 
the single notes which sounds pretty close.

C: End of chorus fill
e|-------------4------------|
B|-5-4---4---4---5-4--5-4---|
G|-----4---4-----6-4--6-4---|
D|--------------------------|
A|--------------------------|
E|--------------------------|
Not too sure about that one either because of the 
mix and effects- I think it's 100% but not all the notes are
that clear. This replaces the second fill in A.

D: End
e|----------4--|
B|----------5--|
G|----------6--|
D|-----7-6--6--|
A|-4-7------4--|
E|-------------|

There you go. It's a pretty simple song with great guitar from 
Johnny Marr. Enjoy!

(only one note; I would try to correct the last bit there but as you say, its hard to hear)
This ^ is a bit awkward now, so heres how I'd arrange it;

Putting a capo on the 4th fret could also make the whole thing easier
