Staralfur - Sigur Ros

Most of this was worked out using
although the song order is different to the cd.
Just to confuse you I've kept the original order.
Also the video is in E and not the half note up on the cd.

*this version is intended to be an acoustic version really but I've added some other bits too.

There's a video of exactly how I play it here (capo on 1st fret):


violins start with:

E--12---------|--14----------------|          x2

These are also the verse chords but you can just play A and D basically.

Then for the intro you could play


or on an acoustic this sounds really good:

| A | A7 A7add11 |              (A7add 11  =   x02022)

| D | Dmaj7 D |

Piano bit that goes on top:




| A | A7 A7add11 |
| D | Dmaj7 D |             x2
[ Tab from: ]
A             D

   A**    G      G/F#               **(confused by this bit - A sounds
ur stađ - -  sjalfur                   better but it looks like he's
G                 D                    playing G/F# on the vid. I play A)

Back to the intro over | A | A7 A7add11 | D | Dmaj7 D |   x2  etc

A     D
Opna augun stírurnar úr
A            D*
trygi mig og tel (hvort ég sé ekki)
A               D

        G      D***          ***Here I play the D for most of the bar
eins og alla veggina         then Dsus2, D, Dsus4 quickly before
                             the instrumental to mimic the orchestra
The instrumental interplay:

| A | Asus2 A | D | D/C# | Bm | 
| G | D/F# | A |

| A7 | D | D Dsus4 D | 
| D/C# |

Then the orchestra plays the refrain chords, followed by

| D G/D D | G | G | G D 
| D | A7 |  D/F# | x2                (actual bar timing
                                         a bit sketchy)

   A**    G       G/F#
ur stađ - -  sjalfur
G                 D

For acoustics sake: C#dim- x4535x (he plays the C# bass while the orchestra plays the remainder)
I use 3x0003 for G
G/D chord at the end is xx0033
G/F#   2x0033
