my life love

Morrissey



From: Stark 



This is how I play Morrissey's My Love Life, the KROQ live version at
least.  The studio version skips the part guitar I plays in the intro,
and goes straight into the main riff.  On the version Alain Whyte and co.
play live, the main riff is played alot more freely (strummed more).  
I realize there are a lot of inaccuracies in my tab, but I just
tried to produce a rough sketch.  I would appreciate it if anybody
could mail me, or post, corrections.

|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|

For the chorus(?) part, I use this shape to play all the chords, sliding
the chords:

 E A D G B E
|-----------|
|--*--------|
|-----------|
|----*-*-*--|

Here's the song:

Intro times 4
Repeat main riff until chorus

come on to my house
come on and do something new
I know you love, one person
but why can't you love two?

(chorus)
E    G                D        C  D
       give a little something
E    G                D       *C  D     * note: pick with first three strings
       give a little something                  and slide chords

(main riff)
to my love life
my love life
my love life
oh..

I know you love one person
why don't you love two?

etc...

=========================================================================

Someone else please post more Smiths/Morrissey, Pixies, J&M Chain,
Sex Pistols, Lush, or anything else slightly "alternative", that
guitar magazines fail to comprehend.  

Good night, and thank you,

Jerry, (jarnail@sfu.ca)
