    hey there, was just wondering if anyone had the bass tab for joy division's "love will tear us apart" song. i checked a couple sites but suprisingly couldn't find it so was wondering if anyone had it/could post it for me. thanks
     
  2. the original (faster) version;

    uses strumming on open strings (incidentally on the New Order Finsbury Park footage you can see Hook use a capo to play the song in E as opposed to D as originally recorded)

    intro;

    G-9-
    D-7-
    A-0-
    E--- (strum chord to the required rhythm)


    verse/chorus;

    G-7--9--9--9--9--9--11-12-11--9--7--
    D-0--0--0--0--0--0---0--0---0---0--0--
    A--------------------------------------
    E--------------------------------------

    slide between notes on top string.

    G------------------7-----------------
    D-9--9-9-9-9-9----7-----7-----7--
    A-----------------------0-0---0-0----
    E-------------------------------------


    ends with intro chord strummed, then,

    G-7
    D-0
    A--
    E-- strummed,
    finally with alternating open D string, 7th fret D on G string after drums stop.

    the 12in version has a different ending- after the intro chord is played, there's a D, B, A section.
