Fields Of The Nephilim
Rough aproximation to Shiva, I'm sure of Riff B, the rest is difficult
	to know... :)

		 	  by  The Nephilim

	Riff A:


	Riff B:


	Riff C:


 "      Walk
        This is
        Welcome to Heaven
        Welcome to 666
        Come closer
        1 2 3 4		"

	Riff A x 8 (while sings the lyrics)
	Riff B once
	Riff C x 4 (while 1 2 3 4...)

"       Walk
        Open your eyes my darling
        Let the weapon rise my darling    
        Come closer
        The sweet smell of giving	"

	Again Riff A x 8, Riff B and Riff C x 4

	Lyrics by John McDonagh and Robert Schmitz

#0  #1(x4)  #2(x8)

Well he talks in confusion
And he faults your point of view
You talk about his operation
And he talks, hear him laughing at you

Contamination and radiation
Let it crawl, wanna see you stalemate
Can't turn to blink or think for a while
Now you're melting through your burning feet
All the people say "Ohh..." 


He talks, clearly starts to open 
A thousand fingers reach out for you

We don't feel no contamination (x4)


#6(x4)  #1(x4)  #7(x2)

Oh, keep talking, you're a hunter, I'm a wolf
Yeah, keep talking, I'm the preacher, you're the fool!

Contamination and radiation
Let it crawl, wanna see you stalemate
Can't turn to blame or think for a while
Now you're melting through your burning feet
Thought I'd hear you say "Ohh..." 


We don't feel no contamination (x4)

We don't feel no contamination (x4)

Radiation, Contamination       (x3)

As usual, it's quite hard to distinguish which one is guitar one, two or the 
bass. The above sounds pretty good when playing along to the record, though. 

When no number of times a riff should be played, is stated, simply repeat
it until you bump into another one, and start playing that.

Riff #3 actually should be: D:--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2... played with
the string "half-muted", but that's not very exciting, is it?

I took the liberty of changing John's (McDonagh) lyrics transcription in a few
places, thereby not claiming my interpretation is correct.

Finally, anybody recognise riff #8 from somewhere else? :-)

OK guys and gels....
	What's the chance of some of us getting together and working out some
Neph TABs for Guitar(+Bass). Myself... I am not particularly good on the guitar
but love to play it. I find some of the Neph stuff particularly hard to work
out. I find some of the intro's to be OK but when the guitar line changes
come chorus I get all messed up.
So here are 2 or 3 intro's. Could anyone out there complete them??

Main Riff...

The Tower
Main Riff...

Main Riff...

    A    A 

The Power chords played in Psychonaut are:-

	D  F  C  G
I play the chords:
	D 	10-12-12-11-10-10
	F	 x- 8-10-10-10- x
	C        8-10-10- 9- 8- 8
	G        x-10-12-12-12- x

I don't claim any of the above is correct... but merely the way 'I' play it.
I have Watchman on line too, but it's the same as the one at the FTP sites.
I can play bits of other songs... I think Endemoniada, Phobia, Power, Love
Under Will, For her Light....
I have a few Bass Lines...
Last Exit for the lost is some thing like...

Does anyone have the bassline for Celebrate.
I would love to be able to play all of the Neph songs... So anyone else out
there with guitars... PLEASE help me.

I can also play some Bauhaus, SoM, Christian Death so... if people are 
interested in more than just Neph I'll try typing out some other stuff.

			Dawnrazor -Fields of the Nephilim

All corrections welcome. This is a very rough version of the TAB...
And you should be able to get your own timings. Please send me in the riff 
towards the end and fill-ins bt. riffs.

Riff A:		 Riff B:	   Riff C:
e|---------	--------------    --7-----5-----
B|---------	--------------    ----5---------
G|-7----5--	--------------    ------5-------
D|---------	--2-0---------    --------------
A|---------	------3-2-0---    --------------
E|---------	--------------    --------------

Riff D:

Intro is Riffs...


Main Verse goes:
	A-B    (ie Riff A the Riff B)

	Cut to razor sounding violins
	Recall your cutthroats and razor sin
	We're watching Heaven as the sun goes down
	I'll watch the sun bursting.. Hit the ground 


	You've got to [ 	]
Chorus: Dawnrazor's falling, The Razor Sin      {Rouse the sky}
	Dawnrazor's falling, The Razor Sin	{nb: Sin sounds like sign}

Then:- B

	Dawnrazor  Dawnrazor      Well how ?
	Dawnrazor  Dawnrazor      Well how ?


	Women in dreams abide, better than lost before
	Women in dreams abide, better than cut before

	Cuts in razor sound in body and limb
	Recall your cutthroats and razor sin
	You've got to [ 	]
	Dawnrazor's falling, The Razor Sin
	Dawnrazor's falling, The Razor Sin
	Dawnrazor's falling, The Razor Sin
	DawnAngel's fall, The Razor Sin

Lyrics by me too(with help from Robert Schmitz).

I should warn you that the rhythm isn't quite right on this, but this
should get you a close enough feel for the song to be able to play along
with the CD and work out the rhythm.

			Fields of the Nephilim

Riff 1:

Riff 2:
   F F E F  E F  F F E F  E F

Riff 3:

So it goes kinda like:
Riff 1 (several times), Riff 2, Riff 3, Riff 2, Riff 3

Riff 1
It drains all of my life force

Riff 1
A body like a unicorn, it's a phobia

Riff 3                               Riff 1
In this crowded room the people just stare

Riff 2
Descend my soul (or whatever)...

Riff 3

Riff 2
Descand my soul, etc...

I think you get the idea.  Two notes:  first, I'm doing this completely by
memory since I currently have access to either my guitar nor the CD at the
moment; secondly, the bass does NOT appear to follow the guitar.  I've not
quite figured out the bass yet, though, but there appear to be some
counterpoint involved.

--the Dragon

	Someone posted a version of Power sometime ago (john)

	Here is mine

	I dont claim this to be correct, its just the way I play it


			   by The Nephilim

	(Normal tuning)

	Bass 1:


	Bass 2:


	Intro: Bass1 + Bass2 x 3

	Then one guitar play Bass1 while the other plays a G chord (probably
	a barre chord on the third fret, but Im not sure

	Main Riff:

	Guitar 1:
	Guitar 2:

	In fact, you can play both riffs in one guitar, but Guitar2 should
	sound quieter

	During the break they play something like:


	Song by McCoy/Yates/Wrigth/Pettit/Wrigth
	TAB by oSKaR

			?Querras Tu rectificar las lineas de mis Manos?

			Chord of Souls

	Main Riff:


	Intro Main Riff x 4

	Then the second guitar enters with an A5 chord (X022XX)

	During the lyrics keep playing:

	|--0--------------------------|  < let this string ringing

	|--2--------------------------| < let this two strings ringing
	|--2--------------------------| <   (full distortion)

	"The Preacher Says...

	Then the power chord seems to change to (0022XX) during the first :

	"Let it be the End"

	On the chorus:

	|--0---------------------| < let this ring


	   Eyes!			(x 4)

	Ending chorus with one guitar playing:


	Also near the end the second guitar plays (while the first keeps
	playing the main riff) :

	|--0--3--5--5--3--0--| Difficult uh?, full distortion
	|--------------------| It seems to sound like if they were harmonics..?

	And finally the end, believers : :>

	|------------------------------------| (x 4)

	And repeat :

	|--------------------|  Till the end 


       The Preacher says to all his men: I hear Godly laughter
        Can it be the end?
        With eyes on fire, couldn't be so cold

        I hear Godly laughter, let it be the end
       Let it be the end

        Well I hate your conscience, Let's skip this world
        I hate your Gods people who breath on earth 
        Over to the other side, I'm caught stepping out         
        Over to the other side, Save your brothers now

        Eyes, eyes, eyes, eyes                          {Possibly: Ice!}

        Honest men, These worthy men
        In all my dreams, I hear Godly laughter
        Unleash your souls, The Faceless knows
        I'm disclosed, It's not the God I'm after

        Let it be the end, let it be the end
        Let it be the end believe us Chord of Souls
        Let it be the end, let it be the end
        Let it be the end between us Chord of Souls

        Eyes, eyes, eyes, eyes

        And I hate your country, And I hate your world
        I hate your Gods people who breath on earth     
        Over to the other side, I'm caught stepping out
        Over to the other side
        I'm gonna recreate a religious experience to tear my f**king heart out

        The End!- Believe us
        Let it be the end
        May the End believe us
        Lord of Souls
        May the End believe us
        Let it be the end, let it be the end between us chord of souls

        Let it end, let it end, let it end

        Eyes, eyes

	Additions and Corrections Welcome...

			?Querras Tu rectificar las lineas de mis Manos?


Comments, corrections etc. welcome.

This is my interpretation of the bassline, as played on guitar. Just 
tune it down an octave ;-)

The "..." indicates repetition of the "0 2 0 2" line appropriate 
number of times. 

e -----0-------0---...-----------------------3-----0-------0---...
B -----------------...---3-----3-----3---3-3-------------------...
G ---2---2---2---2-...---------------------------2---2---2---2-...
D -----------------...-0---0-0---0-0---0-----------------------...

,and start all over again. 

		Watchman -Fields of the Nephilim.

I'll now try to write down the Watchman intro, but be prepared to
move it to a different key (it sounded alright to me last time I
played it to the record - see what you think)

               Riff 1    Riff 2                          Riff 3


So as you can see the first bit follows the pattern:
2 x Riff1 + 2 x Riff2 + Riff3

The two parts with singing follow the pattern:
Riff1 + Riff2 + 2xRiff1 + 2xRiff2 + Riff3 (there is a little
embellishment here and there)

But on the very last time lose the last five notes of Riff3 and
sustain the last '1' on the B-string. One other point is when you
play the '2's in Riff3 sustain the note throughout the sequence.
