Eighties

Killing Joke


Name: Eka Suma address: ha94sumae@wombat.admin.bhtafe.edu.au
Artist: Killing Joke Track: Eighties Album: Night Time (1985) Guitarist: Geordie Walker
This is a played-by-ear transcription of arguably Killing Joke's most popular mainstream song, which also highlights Geordie's extensive use of the open strings for 'stereo guitar' effects.
Thanks to my very forgiving turntable, I have managed to pick up most of the notes after relentless diggings into the vinyl. (I played this song to death for almost ten years, and it finally took the 'net to help me get it out of my system!)
I hope you enjoy playing this song the way I do. Feel free to drop me a line for corrections (I'm sure there must be!), any suggestions, kind words, vitriol, or whatever.
