Editors - Lights tab

Lights
by Editors (off the album "The Back Room", 2005)

Standard Tuning (both guitars)

Update 18/07/07: Verse/Refrain was wrong.

The other tab is nearly right for this, but watching some live videos.. it's 
slightly different. This is my version of it. Enjoy :)

_____________________________________________________________________________
	VERSE [0:00]
_____________________________________________________________________________

The first verse has a very acoustic feel; try and hear the rhythm of Tom's
guitar for this section. The notes on the G strings aren't loudly played.

Tom            
e|-------------|-------------|-------------|-------------|
B|-------------|-------------|-------------|-------------|
G|-9--9--9--9-/|-11-11-11-x--|-4--4--4--4-/|-5--5--5--5--|
D|-9--9--9--9-/|-12-12-12-x--|-5--5--5--5--|-5--5--5--5--|   x4
A|-7--7--7--7-/|-9--9--9--x--|-2--2--2--2-/|-3--3--3--3--|
E|-------------|-------------|-------------|-------------|
   E5            D             G             C5

    I still      love the      light on      baby   .. etc


Then Russell on bass and Chris on lead come in. Tom plays this chord pattern 4
times again, with Chris playing this at the last bar the first and third times
(listen to it if you're confused :P):

[0:26]

Chris

_____________________________________________________________________________
	VERSE [0:53]
_____________________________________________________________________________

Tom takes a break. But no kitkat, he's singing.

Chris
e|-12----------|-12--12------|
B|-12----------|-12--12------|
G|-------------|-------------|
D|-------------|-------------|   x4
A|-------------|-------------|
E|-------------|-------------|
   (echo)

_____________________________________________________________________________
	CHORUS [1:05]
_____________________________________________________________________________

Same as the the first chorus.


_____________________________________________________________________________
	BREAK [1:18]
_____________________________________________________________________________

Tom

_____________________________________________________________________________
	VERSE/REFRAIN [1:32]
_____________________________________________________________________________

Live they play this slightly differently, and I can't really hear Tom's guitar (at
all) so... if you like, play the E in the chorus. If you think Tom plays something
and you know what it is.. please tell :).

Chris
e|-#12#--------|-#12-12#-----|-#14#----#17-|-#19#--------|
B|-#12#--------|-#14/15#-----|-#17#----#17-|-#19#--------|
G|-------------|-------------|-------------|-------------|
D|-------------|-------------|-------------|-------------|
A|-------------|-------------|-------------|-------------|
E|-------------|-------------|-------------|-------------|
(massive echo all the time)

_____________________________________________________________________________
	BREAK [1:45]
_____________________________________________________________________________

Tom (all the way through the break)
e|-------------|
B|----5--------|
G|----4--------|
D|----2--------|  strummed a few times on its own first.
A|----2--------|
E|-------------|

Then Chris comes in

[1:47]

Chris
e|-12----------|-12--12------|
B|-12----------|-12--12------|
G|-------------|-------------|   x4
D|-------------|-------------|
A|-------------|-------------|
E|-------------|-------------|
(keep with the echo)

_____________________________________________________________________________
	CHORUS [2:01]
_____________________________________________________________________________

Same as the first and second choruses the first time. Then Tom carries on and
Chris goes up an octave, so it's instead:

Chris
e|-15----14----|-15----12----|
B|-------------|-------------|
G|-------------|-------------|
D|-------------|-------------|    x8  (over Tom's chords)
A|-------------|-------------|
E|-------------|-------------|


END! :)

Thanks for reading.

I still love the light on baby 
It keeps me awake but I don't mind
