Staralfur (acoustic) - Sigur Ros

Most of this was worked out using
although the song order is different to the cd.
Just to confuse you I've kept the original order.
Also the video is in E and not the half note up on the cd.

There's a mp3 of exactly how I play it here (capo on 1st fret):


| A | A7 A7add11 |                     
| D | Dmaj7 D |             x2

A             D                   
blá nótt yfir himininn            *Play D for a bar then                   
A             D*                  Dsus4, D, Dsus2, D5        
blá nótt yfir mér                 a beat each for the second bar
A              D                     A
horf-inn út um glugann minn með hendur
              D        C#dim
faldar undir kinn
       G             D   A    D/F#
hugsum daginn minn í dag og í gær

A             D
blá nóttfötin klæða mig i,
A           D*
beint upp i rúm
A            D
breiði mjúku sængina
A    D         C#dim
loka augunum
       G             D     C#dim
ég fel hausinn undir væng


Bm Bm/A A   G      A   A7  D   D/C#
starir  á   mig lítill ál-fur
Bm Bm/A A  G          A    A7  D
hleypur að mer en hreyfist ekki
   A**    G      G/F#               **(confused by this bit - A sounds
ur stað - -  sjalfur                   better but it looks like he's
G                 D                    playing G/F# on the vid. I play A)

Back to the intro over | A | A7 A7add11 | D | Dmaj7 D |   x2  etc

A     D
Opna augun stírurnar úr
A            D*
trygi mig og tel (hvort ég sé ekki)
A               D
kommin aftur og alltalltilæ
A               D         C#dim
samt ventar eitthvað
        G      D***          ***Here I play the D for most of the bar
eins og alla veggina         then Dsus2, D, Dsus4 quickly before
                             the instrumental to mimic the orchestra
The instrumental interplay:

| A | Asus2 A | D | D/C# | Bm | A |
| G | D/F# | A | A7 |

| D | Dsus4 D | 
| D/C# |

Then play the chorus again followed

| D G/D D | G | G | G D 
| D | A7 |  D/F# | x2                (actual bar timing
                                         a bit sketchy)

   A**    G       G/F#
ur stað - -  sjalfur
G                 D


A7            x02020
A7add 11  =   x02022
Dmaj7         xx0222
C#dim- x4535x
I use  3x0003 for G
G/D chord at the end is xx0033
G/F#   2x0033
D/F#   2x0232
D/C#   x40232

Other bits you could play


violins start with:

E--12---------|--14----------------|          x2

These are also the verse chords but you can just play A and D basically.

Then for the intro you could play


Piano bit that goes on top:
