Tabbed by Dom Glynn

All worked out by ear but I'm sure it's correct.

Standard tuning with a capo on 2nd.
All chords and tabs are relative to the capo.

You can use open chord shapes or the voicings I believe Johnny Marr used.

Marr's Chord voicings:

  C  G  Em  G(II) Gsus4 Fmaj7  Bm7b9  Am
E|0--0-------0---0-----0-------------0-|
B|5--0-------3---1-----1-------1-----1-|

D|5--0--2----0---0-----3-------0-----2-|
A|3--2--2----2---2-------------2-----0-|

Great tab. Thanks for working out solos. I figured out this song by ear as well, and I play two chords differently:

C Bm7
E|0--0|
B|5--3|
G|0--0|
D|2--0|
A|3--2|
E|----|

In my opinion, my C sounds just perfect, and about that Bm7, it just logically fits:

C Bm7b9 Fmaj7
Let me, let me, let me

In this verse you have descent on string B on frets 5-3-1 and you can hear it in a song, while in your tab it's 5-1-1.

What do you think? Great tab anyway, peace :)
