This is an alternative way to play the main riff to Joy Divisions Transmission, this way you keep your
hand in the same place for most of the song instead of going up and down the fret in the other versions

I play this song with a bass player too so it's as the song is, the first verse is just 
the bass guitar, and then the lead guitar comes in at the end of the first verse and 
then through the second verse.

All the lyrics are in the right places, the little strum piece goes through the verses and choruses,
listen to the song to work it out, easy though.

Please rate, and comment if you have anything positive to add. Thanks and enjoy

Listen to the silence, let it ring on.
Eyes, dark grey lenses frightened of the sun.
We would have a fine time living in the night,
Left to blind destruction,Waiting for our sight.

We would go on as though nothing was wrong.
And hide from these days we remained all alone.
Stay in the same place, just stay out the time.
Touching from a distance,Eating all the Limes.

Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio.
Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio.
Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio.
Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio.

Well I could call out when the going gets tough.
The things that we've learnt are no longer enough.
No language, just sound, that's all we need to know,
To synchronise Love to the beat of the show.

And we could dance.

Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio.
Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio.
Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio.
Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio.
