No-one seems capable of tabbing anything on the BNW album (which is
amazing, I might add since I'm typing this), except a few intros and
some rhythm chords for The Wicker Man... plus a pretty decent tab of
The Fallen Angel.  Oh, and the tab I wrote of Blood Brothers.  Anyway,
this is my personal favorite song on the album, so its about friggin'
time I learnt to play it.  I've spent a long time figuring this out.
After realising the song was in C not G (one note difference: F and F#)
it didn't take long for it to make sense.

Well here's the tab.  I'll make it as short as possible, ok?
As usual, it's not PERFECT timing, but roughly right.


 INTRO RIFF

For this bit, a second guitar plays the pairs of A5 chords too.

e |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
b |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
g |-2---2-------4-5-4---------------|-2---2-------4-5-4-------7--------|
D |-2---2---------------5-----------|-2---2---------------5------------|
A |-0---0-------------------5-------|-0---0----------------------------|
E |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|

e |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
b |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
g |-2---2-------4-5-4---------------|-------------------------5---3----|
D |-2---2---------------5-----------|-----------------7---5------------|
A |-0---0-------------------5-------|-5---3---5---3--------------------|
E |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|

At this point, the second guitar plays A5 and lets it ring while the first
guitar plays this riff clean (sounds very Egyptiany)...

e |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
b |---------------------------------|------------------------------8---|
g |---------9---------9h10p9-7-9----|---------9------9h10p9-7-9-10-----|
D |-7---7-7-------------------------|-7---7-7--------------------------|
A |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
E |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|

e |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
b |---------------------------------|------------------------------8---|
g |---------7-------7h9p7---7-------|---------9------9h10p9-7-9-10-----|
D |-5---5-5---------------10--------|-7---7-7--------------------------|
A |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
E |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|


 VERSE RIFF

The second guitar plays a load of open A string notes to follow the
bass line, a bit like this:

.
.
A |-0---0-0-0---0-0-0---0-0-0---0-0-|-0---0-0-0---0-0-0---0-0-0---0-0--|
E |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|

And the lead guitar...?

e |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
b |---------5h6p5-----------3h5p3---|----------------------------------|
g |---------------7---------------5-|---------5h7p5-----------4h5p4----|
D |---------------------------------|---------------7---------------5--|
A |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
E |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|


 PRE-CHORUS RIFF

This is clean before "The dream is true..." and it has bags of bass and
distortion before "I ONLY DREAM IN BLACK AND WHITE!!!".  But both are
the same simple riff.  A second guitar plays the chords in full (ie not
picking a melody) in the background.

e |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
b |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
g |---------------------------------|---------7-------7-------7--------|
D |---------3---------------3-------|-----7-------7-------7------------|
A |-----3-------3-------3-------3---|-5---------------------------7----|
E |-1---------------1---------------|-----------------------------0----|
    F5                                D5                          E5 (x3)

e |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
b |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
g |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
D |---------3---------------3-------|---------5---------------5--------|
A |-----3-------3-------3-------3---|-----5-------5-------5-------5----|
E |-1---------------1---------------|-3---------------3----------------|
    F5                                G5


 CHORUS A ("The dream is true...")

The background guitar plays simple chords of Ami, Cmaj, Gmaj then Ami,
Fmaj, Gmaj.

e |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
b |-----------------1---------------|----------------------------------|
g |---------2---------------2-------|---------5------------------------|
D |-----2-------2-------2-------2---|-----5-------------------5--------|
A |-0-------------------------------|-3-------------------5------------|
E |---------------------------------|-------------3--------------------|
    Ami                               C5          G5                 (x3)

e |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
b |-----------------1---------------|----------------------------------|
g |---------2---------------2-------|---------2------------------------|
D |-----2-------2-------2-------2---|-----3-------------------5--------|
A |-0-------------------------------|-3-------------------5------------|
E |---------------------------------|-------------3--------------------|
    Ami                               Fmaj        G5


 CHORUS B ("I ONLY DREAM IN BLACK AND WHITE!!  I ONLY DREAM 'CAUSE...")

This is the fun bit.  Just totally killing your guitar and amp and
genearlly overdoing it with the distortion pedal and bass (thus A5 is
played on EAD instead of ADg) with crappy power chords.  Ironically, in
the words of Austin Power(chord)s: "YEAH, BABY!!!"


e |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
b |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
g |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
D |-7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---|-3-------3-3-5-------5---5---5----|
A |-7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---|-3-------3-3-5-------5---5---5----|
E |-5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---|-1-------1-1-3-------3---3---3----|
                                                                     (x3)
e |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
b |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
g |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
D |-3---3---3---3-------3---3---3---|-5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5----|
A |-3---3---3---3-------3---3---3---|-5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5----|
E |-1---1---1---1-------1---1---1---|-3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3----|


 INTERLUDE BREAK

Eventually, there's an interlude break part (that's the bit where the
tempo is increased and Niko's awesome nodding-dog drumming kicks in).
Well, here's all the parts tabbed, in order of appearance.

Riff 1:

e |-5h7p5-7-7---5-------5-|-3h5p3-5-5---3-------3-|
b |-----------------6-----|-----------------5-----|
g |-----------------------|-----------------------|
D |-----------------------|-----------------------|
A |-----------------------|-----------------------|
E |-----------------------|-----------------------|
                        (x2)                    (x2)

with second guitar playing power chords: A5... G5... A5... F5, G5...
also during the vocal bits ("Lost... in a dream of mirrors...")

Riff 2:

This one is very, very fast...  Bruce does some vocal "whoas" over this
occasionally.

e |-3h5p3---5-------7-7-5-5-3-3-----|
b |-------6---------------------6-6-|
g |---------------------------------|
D |---------------------------------|
A |---------------------------------|
E |---------------------------------|

and, then there's the solo...  no way am I tabbing it.  I'm not that
amazing.  But you can just adlib some stuff in key Cmaj (Ami) over
the second guitar's A5... G5... A5... F5, G5...


 OUTRO RIFF

This is right at the end.  The tempo slows down during it.

e |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
b |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
g |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|
D |---------9-10-9-7---------9------|---------9-10-9-7---------9vvvvvv-|
A |-0---0------------0---0----------|-0---0------------0---0-----------|
E |---------------------------------|----------------------------------|

Well, that's the end of my tab.  Please, please, PLEASE, give me feedback
