				Novelty -Joy Division
				~~~~~~~
Transcribed by: John Mc Donagh(mcdonghj@unix2.tcd.ie)

I have only managed to figure out some bits of this so far. If you get any bits
that aren't here please mail them to me and add to my education:

Intro Riff:
e|------------------------------------------|
B|----1-----1------1------3-----------------|
G|---2-2---2--2---2--2---4-4----------------|
D|--------------0------2------ <------------|These notes are actually played on bass,
A|-0-----2-------------------- <------------|but if you're playing alone you need them.
E|------------------------------------------|
        |-----------------------------------|
        |----1-----1------1----5--3--1------|
        |---2-2---2--2---2--2-----------2---|
        |--------------0-------2------------|
        |-0-----2---------------------------|
        |-----------------------------------|
After that there is a kind of plucking riff which I can't figure out.

Then the main verse riff is like(get your own timings):
                   Em--palm mute-|                  D---------------------------|
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------2-2-2-----|
D|--5--5-5-5-5-5-5--4--4-5-4-0-2-2-2-2-2-2---2-2-2-2--4-4-5-4-4-4-0-0-0-0-0-----|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|


The solo at the end of the first verse is something like:
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--5^-5^-5^5p3h5--3-5--3-5--3-5--3-5^-3-------2-3-3-3-3-3--2-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-----|
G|---------------------------------------0----------------------------------0-0-|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

This then goes back to the verse riff.

Then there is the second solo at the end of the second verse(get own timings):
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--5^-5^-5^5p3h5--3-5--3-5--3-5--3-5^-3-----2-3-3-3-3-3--2-3-3-3-3--------| ^=bend
G|---------------------------------------0---------------------------------| h=hammer
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|      -on
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------| p=pull-off
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|--------------------------------------------------------|
B|-5^5^5^5^5^5^---2-3-3-3-3-3--2-3-3-3-3-3-3-3------------|
G|---------------------------------------------0-0-0-0-0--|
D|--------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------|

				    G         F#        E   D E        D E
                e|-----------------------------------------------------------|
                B|-----------------------------------------------------------|
  Then there is a bit of a    G|--7--7-7-7--6--6-6-6--4-4-2-4--4-4-4-2-4-----|
  power chord fill. Play the    D|--5--5-5-5--4--4-4-4--2-2-0-2--2-2-2-0-2---|
  chords where ever you want.    A|------------------------------------------|
                E|-----------------------------------------------------------|

Then the guitar plays a simplified version of the verse riff.
If you got to here you can manage the outro.

This is how I play it, I think it's fairly close. If somebody can take this and make an accurate, complete tab out of this...

I want to post or [tab]
