Joy Division - Insight

A simple yet effective song that is quite often mis-tabbed. One of Peter's 
quintessential bass lines in
Joy Division, making for quite a bouncy number.

Verse (x4)
Chorus (x1)

Bass Riff. This is NOT what Bernard actually plays at ANY point in the song, but if you 
want to follow
Peter's bass exactly, then you play this on guitar part during the verses.

Verse. The strumming seems straight forward, but you can mix it up slightly during the 
initial chord.
Bernard did a lot during live performances.

 |x24|                    |x2|

Chorus. Played in the middle and end of the song. It's a bit hard to hear it on record 
and easier in live
situations. Again, Bernard mixes up the strumming and even the chords a bit, here, so 
this isn't the end-all tabbed version of this section of the song.

  |x16|                                       |x3| |x9|

Ending. It's essentially the same as the Chorus, but usually protracted a bit, depending 
on the version.
