Song: Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others
Written by: Johnny Marr and Morrissey
Bassist: Andy Rourke
Album: The Queen Is Dead

Tabbed By : Tim Mobbs
e-mail: sloths_magic_hat@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard (EADG)

This tab is note for note 100% correct. Although there is no
clear instruction of timing, the spacing between the numbers on
the tab does indicate a rough idea of the rhythm. 

It is very easy to figure out however by just listening 
to the track. Enjoy!

 The final few bars that lead into the fade are just repeats of the two last
 phrases. There appears to be no specific order, so just be creative.

Good job overall, although not note for note 100% correct, as you claim. The "double notes" on some verses are missing, and the middle part of the verse is slightly wrong. For example in the 1st phrase of the 2nd verse I got it like this (also note the other minor corrections here as well):

"As Anthony said to Cleopatra.."
G|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-4-4----4-4----2-2----2-2----0-0----0-0---------------------------------------6-5-|
E|------4------2------2------0------0------0-2-2--2-2-0-2-3-4--4-4--4--4--4-4-4-----|

(I prefer playing the open A's on the E string because it's easier to mute the strings then)

Sometimes it's played like above, other times just single notes or a mix of it. You just have to listen for it.

I also think the outro is slightly wrong. There seems to just be the below phrase you had 4 times, then 3 times but with the last two notes (-2-0-) on the E string switched around (-0-2-), and then just switching between these two variations, only playing the same one once or twice in no specific pattern.

G|--------------------------|
D|--------------------------|
A|-4-----4----0--0-----2--3-|
E|----4-----4------2-0------|
