Artist(s): The Sisters Of Mercy
Title: Some Kind Of Stranger
Album: First And Last And Always (1985)
Transcribed by: Doorim (doorim@hotmail.com)

Note: There was only the intro to the verse that was originally tabbed out,
      and some chords along with it. But I finnished the verse and tabbed
      out the rest of the song.
      Credits to mcdonghj@unix2.tcd.ie for some of the intro part.

There is a really good cover made by The Mist Of Avalon. Go check it
out at www.mist-of-avalon.com

This tab use real timing.
Also look for the basstab which I've tabbed.

The original song have three guitars, but the third is only used for the
last solo. The other solos is played by a synth.

/ = slide up
\ = slide down

try this for the main rhyhthm:

main rhythm:

G Am C D
e:|-3---3~--3/5-1--1^3^1-0--||-------0--------0-------2------|
b:|-3-----------------------||----------1-------1-------3----|
g:|-0-----------------------||-2----------2-------0-------2--|
d:|-0-----------------------||----------------------0--------|
a:|-2-----------------------||----0---------3----------------|
e:|-3-----------------------||-------------------------------|

gives a bit fuller sound with more character amongst the reverb...

q.d.

i also like the longer lead line:

lead line:

e:|----10-10----12~-10-----10-10----12~-10~-|
b:|-10-------10--------10--------10---------|


e:|---8-8---10~-8----8-8---10~-8~-|
b:|-8-----8-------8------8--------|

e:|---6-6---8~-6----6-6---8~-6~-|
b:|-6-----6------6------6-------|

e:|---5-5---6~-5----6--5-6-5--|
b:|-5-----5------5------------|

it's very haunting and synches well with the keyboard outro...

q.d.

Very good job for a great song!
I just want to add that the tempo is 64 bpm.
