                  STAIRCASE (MYSTERY) - Siouxsie and The Banshees
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: emilym80

There are three guitars in this song, so I've split it into three parts.
This is the single A side version, not the "Pathway Demo" (which is in a 
different key). It can be mostly played by combining the two parts, as a 
majority of the song is trading chords between the two guitars. I believe the
third guitar is an acoustic 12 string, but I'm not sure. I've tabbed it based
on the assumption that it is.
Listen for the timing. Enjoy.

Not sure about this part. It's quite hard to hear what's going on.
McKay sometimes omits the root (single notes before the chord).

Pretty sure that's everything. Listen to the song for structure, rhythm etc.
Enjoy.
