         Black Celebration  -  Depeche Mode                 
------------------------------------------------------------


This song is a sampling-synth song, originally. When playing
the basic keyboard phrases as distortion guitar riffs this
song turns into an interesting rock ballad. Thus, here you find the
main riffs tabbed for guitar.
