From: Winston Campbell 
Subject: The Holy Hour by The Cure


Here is the bass tab and chords for the Cure song -The Holy Hour- written by
The Cure.  It is off of their depressing =faith= album.  A friend of mine,
veronica, angst@eden.rutgers.edu, figured out the Em and Am bass progression.
 I figured out that it was Am to Em and the F bass portion.

Here is the basic bass part for the chords:

       Am             Em           F 

G --------3-3-2-2----------------|-------------------------------|
D -----------------------3-3-2-2-|--------3-3-2-2--------3-3-2-2-|
A -----0-------------------------|-------------------------------|
E -3-3------------3-3-0----------|-3-3-1----------3-3-1----------|


(Basically the verse is just Am to Em and the chorus is F)

I kneel and wait in silence
As one by one the people slip away
Into the night
The quite and empty bodies
Kiss the ground before they pray
Kiss the ground
And slip away

I sit and listen dreamlessly
A promise of salvations makes me stay
Then look at your face
And feel my heart pushed in
As all around the children play
The games they tired of yesterday
They play
They play

I stand and hear my voice
Cry out
A wordless scream at ancient power
It breaks against stone
I softly leave you crying
I cannot hold what you devour
Sacrifice all penance
In the holy hour

Does anybody know if any effects were used in this song? I'm curious how they made the bass sound like that.
