"The head master ritual" (Morrissey/Marr)

Guitar tabs and chords symbols
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
This is my version of the Johnny's guitars arrangments.
Please, notice that the song should be played with a capo on the 2nd fret.
Another thing: tabs doesn't allow us to understand well the rhythm of the accompanyment,
so any questions or doubts, please, e-mail-me: eluedy@ufba.br, or emarques@svn.com.br

and returns to the intro's first chords (C9   /Esus4/ E), repeating the whole thing until
the guitar riff:

it returns to the guitar riff, and, then, goes to the chant:
