Under The Milky Way

(Kilbey / Jansson)

Taken from Shadow Cabinet
Transcribed by Brian Smith

This is the most well-known Church song and (as luck would have it) one of
the easiest to play.

Am7sus4 is played as follows
E 0
B 3
G 0
D 2
A 0
E X

Verse: Am Am7sus4 Fmaj7 G
Chorus: G Fmaj7
Bridge/Solo: C G Am

Extra Credit:
If you have a friend with a capo, get them to put it on the fifth fret and play:
Verse: Em Em7sus4 Cmaj7 D
Chorus: D Cmaj7
Bridge/Solo: G D Em

That will really thicken the sound up.  Vary your respective rhythms for even
more effect.

Taken from Shadow Cabinet

Here's the tab for the opening.
E--2-2-2--3----3--0-----
B--3-3-3--3----3--3-----
G--0-0-0--0----0--0-----
D--2-2-2--2----2--2-----
A------------3----3---0-
E0----------------------

That last "A" leaves you holding an Am7sus4 (or A7sus4, whatever you want to
call it.) Play each note in a Church-y manner, then repeat once more.  Then
cue Marty going bonkers on his Rickenbacker playing a descending Em pentatonic

Verse: Em D C9
Chorus: Em9 C9 Am7sus4
Bridge: G Dm rpt.  On last pair, play G D

I don't have the intro but here's some of the chords.
Some of the words are wrong and maybe even the chord names.
There's also a few parts that i'm missing that i'll update
soon when i get around to it.

I'm wet with ya tears
G   D C G
You spill so easily
Am              Amsus2 Am
In reflection
Em              Em7 Em
I see you again
Am           C       Dsus2 D Dsus4 D Dsus2
Approach me, slowly
Bsus4         Cmaj7
Fight, fight, breathe

That's all i have right now. I think the next part goes G5 D/F E5 C5
but i'm not too sure. When i work it out i'll update this.

LYRICS
1.
    Too dangerous to keep
    Too feeble to let go
    And you want to bite the hand
    Shoulda stopped this long ago

Chours
    Go now, you've been set free
    Another month or so you'll be poisoning me
    With your lovely smile
    I see you slither away with your skin and your tail
    Your flickering tounge and your rattling scales
    Like a real reptile

2.
    Had you coiled around my arm
    How could you ever know
    How I loved your diamond eyes
    But that was long ago

Chorus

Solo

3.
    And I should have believed Eve
    She said we had to blow
    She was the apple of my eye
    It wasn't long ago

Chorus

Here's another transcription by Enrique Zamudio:

Use a delay time of about 350 milliseconds for the first part.

There are two guitars in the song. The first one goes with the delay,
while the second one has a light distortion.

And here are the bass tabs:

Verse:

G--------------------------------------------------
D------------------10-12-12-12-10---10-12----------
A------10---10-12------------------13-------10-----
E--------------------------------------------------

The last note of the run, G(10th fret A string), sometimes does a small slide downward.

Chorus is just a G - F - Eb progression that can be played 
10th fret 8th fret 6th fret on the A string 
or 5th fret 3rd fret 1st fret on the D string. 

Hotel Womb

(Kilbey)

Taken from Shadow Cabinet

This is a great song to play solo

Opening strum: D Em7 C9 rpt
Verse: D Am7sus4 C9 (X4)
Chorus: Em C9 G
Bridge: My favourite part.  Make the shape of Fmaj7 (F chord with open high E)
Then move your hand up the neck so your index finger is on the fifth fret.  This
is an open A chord.  The chords you'll play are: A C/A D9/A Bbaug4/A.  But they're
all the same chord shape, with the index finger on these frets: 5, then 8
then 10 then 6.  Get it ?

The bridge section gets repeated a few times, so start softly, then build in
volume and complexity so that by the last time your hand is a blur and the amp
is screeching !
