(Kilbey) Taken from a thread at Hotelwomb Transcription by Noel To play along with the CD, you must CAPO at the fifth fret. All chords are relative to the capo, although transposition isn't too difficult on this one. Limbo Capo Fret 5 Verse 1 (cool upstrokes on the Em) Em Em Ate up the prophets, corrupted the saints Em Em Exhausted resources, made us ashamed Chorus Em C Hollywood won't touch you with a pole D5 Am Jesus doesn't love you, Lucipher does not Am (Em) want your soul Em C Made a mistake, no one will forgive you D5 Am The servants you love to dismiss all will outlive you Verse 2 Em Em Set us against each other, thought it was clever Em Em What a fiasco, well I never Chorus Verse 3 Em Em Such a good baby, such an old man Em Em Thanks for the memories, now why don't you scram Chorus I enjoy this song as it is recorded, but there is alot more electronic sounds than guitar. Hearing Kilbey play it live on guitar only convinced me that it was originally composed on/for the guitar. The chords are all played first position. On the D5, the bass and keyboards imply a minor tone, but I believe the guitar simply plays the D5: ---------0-- ---------3-- ---------2-- ---------0-- ---------0-- ---------x-- Also, on the E-minor in the chorus, the other instruments imply a seventh tone, but the guitar plays E-minor only. I hope someone can find interest in playing this song, it is classic Kilbey
Transcribed by Brian Smith Chords used: G5 : 320033 C9+5 : 032033 - weird name, simple concept. Just move two fingers down from the G5 chord. Eb Thingy : X65066 The C9 chord moved up by three frets - no barre. Let the G string ring clearly and BLOCK THAT LOW E!! Steve didn't do so at a concert and stopped the song half way through because something sounded *really* ... ummm.... "discordant". The low E ringing through the chorus was the cause. Db Thing: X43044 Same as the previous chord but down two frets. The G is still ringing clearly and that nasty low E should be blocked. OK, after that lot the song is fairly simple. Verse: G C9 (repeat) Chorus: Eb Thingy Db Thingy C9 The only tweak I can suggest is when you switch from G to C9 in the chorus try and sometimes hit the 2nd fret on the G string. This adds an "A" to the chord and lets you hint at what the bassline is doing in the recording.

(Kilbey) Transcription by Noel Here is English Kiss from Narcosis +. It is basically a two chord song, though there seems to be a passing G tone between the Fmaj7 and Amin. The guitar tracks on the album feature quite a bit of wah pedal rocking back and forth (very tasty). The keyboard fill in the intro can be played on the guitar using the Harmonic Minor scale. Something like this: e . B . G .5 .. D 5 7 . A 5 7 ..8 . E 5 7 ..8 .. The chords are A minor 0 1 2 2 0 X F major 7 (though Fmaj7/C can be substituted: from high E > 01233X) 5 5 5 7 8 5 Amin Do you remember the story Fmaj7 Of the bloody chamber Amin About the mad tiger Fmaj7 He licks the skin off the women. Amin I tell you Samantha //// Fmaj7 I could wear those stripes for you. Amin Have you prayed, have you chanted Fmaj7 With the symbols and incense Amin To both Krishna and Buddha Fmaj7 And the Goddess of Fortune Amin For an Indian lover /// To wake Kundalini Fmaj7 Your beautiful Yonni /// But also Iscariot Amin Who comes to betray us Fmaj7 With just one English Kiss. Amin Deep in the autumn Fmaj7 I lie in my bedroom Amin Just one more long shadow Fmaj7 Fall into the corners Amin I reach for a woman Fmaj7 Who harbors in darkness Amin She lands on a mountain /// Sways for a moment Fmaj7 Crashes in pieces all over my eyes. Amin All over my eyes Chord progression remains the same throughout And when you get tired Of fake little evenings Slip through your fingers And dont keep their promise Such a sad vision It breaks up my daydream Such a sad vision, breaks up my daydream Look up that sleeve, where is the rabbit Already secreted along with the dove Where is the passion, already depleted Just like the love.
