                             STIGMATA MARTYR by Bauhaus
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From their debut "In the Flat Field" (1980). The meat of this song relies on heavy 
distortion, harmonics and muting. There is really only one chord progression, but the 
combination of that with the harmonic effects gives it a really massive sound.

Tuning: Standard


"( )" denote harmonics; lay finger over the strings and let them sound without pressing 
on them.


Intro:

e|-------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------|
E|--(2)(2)(2)(2)(2)(2)(2)(2)(2)(2)(2)(2)(2)(2)(2)(2)(2)--|

-(3)(3)(3)(3)(3)(3)-(4)(4)(4)(4)(4)-(3)(3)(3)(3)(3)-(2)(2)(2)(2)--|


Then, play open strings muted in jolts; make sure not to let them ring:

Repeat patterns throughout song.


Lyrics:

In a crucifixion ecstasy
Lying cross chequed in agony
Stigmata bleed continuously
Holes in head, hands, feet, and weep for me

Stigmata, oh you sordid sight
Stigmata in your splintered plight
Look into your crimson orifice
In holy remembrance
In scarlet bliss

In nomine patri et filii et spiriti sanctum
In nomine patri et filii et spiriti sanctum
In nomine patri et filii et spiriti sanctum
In nomine patri et filii et spiriti sanctum
Father, son, and holy ghost
Stigmata martyr
