Depeche Mode - Sister Of Night chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Wonderfully melancholy song from The 'Mode.
Song not really suited to conventional guitar chords, or at least they are very 'jazz
If you want to convey the smooth feeling of the original song, then it's maybe better to
between 'power chord' shapes higher up the neck and mix with lead play to help find the 
notes that change the mood of the song, but here are the conventional style chords, as
the tab book release...

{define: Em  - 022000 }
{define: Em7/D  - xx0030 }
{define: Cmaj7/G  - 332000 } add 'G' root note for a nicer feel.
{define: Dsus4  - xx0233 }
{define: D  - xx0232 } alternatively add an F# root perhaps {2x0232}
{define: B7/D#  - x64445 } awkward chord. Maybe leave out the 5th fret note?
{define: B7  - x21202 }
{define: Am7  - x02010 }
{define: B7#5  - x25243 } awkward barred chord. big stretch because of root note! Can't
root note tho. Loses the feel and mood without it.
{define: G  - 320033 }

Chords, as of the start of the singing:

Other lyrics:

Sister of night
In your saddest dress
As you walk through the light
You're desperate to impress
So you slide to the floor
Feeling insecure

Sister of night
With the loneliest eyes
Tell yourself it's alright
He'll make such a perfect prize
But the cold light of day
Will give the game away

Oh sister, come for me
Embrace me, assure me
Hey sister, I feel it too
Sweet sister, just feel me
I'm trembling, you heal me
Hey sister, I feel it too
