                             Shadowplay - Joy Division
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Nate
Email: Nateg1489@aol.com

Tuning:EADGBe

Bass goes for a while in the beginning, and then guitar kicks in at some point.

Verse:
e|-------------------------------------|
B|-0-----------------------------------|
G|-0---------555555555555-77-----------|
D|-2---------555555555555\77-----------|
A|-2---------333333333333-55-----------|
E|-0-----------------------------------|
             ^----pm----^
 These 2 riffs switch on and off, but it's mostly the first one.            
e|--------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------|
G|--------------555555555555-77---------|
D|-2------2-2---555555555555\77-55--77--|
A|-2------2-2---333333333333-55-55--77--|
E|-0------0-0-------------------33--55--|
                ^----pm----^

Solo 1:
e|------------------------5b-2---------------------------|
B|--------3---3\5--------------5-3--------3---3\5--------|
G|-2h4------4-----4-2-4------------2-4------4-----4--2-4-| 
D|-------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------|

4s on G can be substituted as open B, it's a little easier in parts

e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-444444432432432432432-----------444432432432432432--------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------5-7---7-7--------------------5-7----7\1---|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

Then back to the verse

Solo 2:
e|-----------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------3---3\5-------------------------3---3\5------------|
G|-2h4------4-----4-2-4---4--4-2-4-2-4------4-----4-2-4---4-4|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------|

e|--------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-444432432432432432------------444432432432432432-------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------5-7---7-7---------------------5-7---7-7777|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------3---3-03-033-5-7-7-75-33-0-33-0-33-0-33-0-355b*-|
G|-2h4-4-4-24-24-4---4---------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

*keep bending the 5 until the end of the solo

e|----------------------------|
B|----------------------------|
G|-555555555555-77------------|
D|-555555555555\77--2---------|
A|-333333333333-55--2---------|
E|------------------0---------|
   ^----pm----^     ^let ring until end
          

Not very complicated, but the solo is fun as hell.  Enjoy

The solo is terribly WRONG, you don't play it like that but like this:

e -------------------------------------------
B -------------------------------------------
G ------------------------------------------
D --9-8-7-9-8-7-9-8-7-9-8-7-9-8-7---------------------
A --------------------------------5)7--------
E ----------------------------------------

etc. The rest is pretty wrong too. Watch a vid Joy Division performing Shadowplay on TV, you can find it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1o8noZIfO1M

Closely watch Sumner.
