                  STAIRCASE (MYSTERY) - Siouxsie and The Banshees
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are three guitars in this song, so I've split it into three parts.
This is the single A side version, not the "Pathway Demo" (which is in a 
different key). It can be mostly played by combining the two parts, as a 
majority of the song is trading chords between the two guitars. I believe the
third guitar is an acoustic 12 string, but I'm not sure. I've tabbed it based
on the assumption that it is.
Listen for the timing. Enjoy.

Enjoy.
